With an Introduction and Notes by Professor Roger Cardinal. University of Kent at Canterbury. Translations are by Paul Desages ('Around the World in Eighty Days') and Arthur Chambers ('Five Weeks in a Balloon'). Jules Verne (1828-1905) possessed that rare storyteller's gift of being able to present the far-fetched and the downright unbelievable in such a way as effortlessly to inspire his reader's allegiance and trust. This volume contains two of his best-loved yarns, chosen from among the sixty-four titles of 'Les Voyages Extraordinaires', Verne's pioneering contribution to the canon of modern science fiction. 'Around the World in Eighty Days' (1873) relates the hair-raising journey made as a wager by the Victorian gentleman Phileas Fogg, who succeeds - but only just! - in circling the globe within eighty days. The dour Fogg's obsession with his timetable is complemented by the dynamism and versatility of his French manservant, Passepartout, whose talent for getting into scrapes brings colour and suspense to the race against time. 'Five Weeks in a Balloon' (1863) was Verne's first novel. It documents an apocryphal jaunt across the continent of Africa in a hydrogen balloon designed by the omniscient, imperturbable and ever capable Dr Fergusson, the prototype of the Vernian adventurer. AUTHOR: Jules Verne (1828 -1905) is a French author who, although he did not invent Science Fiction, was probably the most influential writer in the genre. Although basing many of his ideas on the latest technological advances of his time, his invention was so meticulous as to be totally convincing. His novels, such 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea' and 'Journey to the Centre of Earth' are classics of enduring popularity.… (lisätietoja)

This book brought back memories :-) As a child I watched the cartoon of Around the world in 80 days, the tune still lingers in my head...
The booknis a nice read, just as nice as the series were to watch. Ibreturned to it because it's on the 1001-list, not because I'm such a huge Verne's fan. ( )

I thought it would be fun to read this book after reading [b:Captain Nemo|376663|Captain Nemo|Kevin J. Anderson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1174289381s/376663.jpg|366510]

I was right! It made the very dry writing style a bit more interesting because you felt like you knew the secret behind the words. ( )

I never read this story in youth so it was a real pleasure to pick it up and enjoy it as much as I did. The characters of Phileas Fogg and Passepartout are accompanied by Detectice Fix and Aouda on the Fogg's world wide trip on a bet. ( )

Meanwhile, his arch enemy Detective Fix does his best to keep up with and deter Fogg from his itinerary. Will Phileas Fogg overcome these obstacles to fulfill his destiny? Only the calendar will tell in this exciting tale.

Mine:
The race is one – will Fogg make it in time with all the interruptions? He has staked half of his wealth on a bet to make it around the world in 80 days or less. He meets many interesting people along the way – the princess he must rescue, the owner of the elephant he must ride to catch up ( I recommend not riding a elephant in shorts – very bristly hairs. Found out by doing so), Detective Fix who is determined that he his the guilty party of a robbery that has taken place.

This volume contains both “Around the World in Eighty Days” and “Five Weeks in a Balloon,” which I did not realize until after I had bought it. Of the two novels, I liked the former better. Both books contained adventure and humor, but I think some of the things I found funny in “Five Weeks in a Balloon” were not meant to be funny. At the start of the story, Dr. Fergusson’s buddy Kennedy tries to talk his friend out of the crazy trip, and Fergusson basically shuts him down, saying that he has thought of all possible obstacles and already overcome them with science. Then, about halfway through, things start to go downhill and the plot twists quickly become ridiculous as unforeseen obstacles pop up with a vengeance. In “Around the World in Eighty Days,” I guessed the last plot twist early on, but that was okay. I enjoyed the characters in that book better, too. Fogg’s stoicism was much more intriguing than Fergusson’s sentimentality. Also, the rampant racism in “Five Weeks in a Balloon” greatly offended my modern sensibilities. In “Around the World in Eighty Days,” the prejudices of the time were quite apparent, but you could forgive them because of Fogg’s kind treatment of Aouda. In “Five Weeks in a Balloon,” there was no such redeeming factor, and the racism was much more pervasive and persistent. Overall, I found “Around the World in Eighty Days” to be a much more enjoyable read than and “Five Weeks in a Balloon.” ( )
