“Around the World in Eighty Days” by Jules Verne

A fun and easy read about a wealthy man’s wager to tour around the world in eighty days through Asia, America and Europe.

Verne brilliantly captured the excitement, the drama, the determination and resourcefulness required to complete a tour around the world, although he painted a negative picture of Asian and native American cultures.

“Truly, would you not for less than that make the tour around the world?”

You bet I would!
