Jules Vernes: Around the World in Eighty Days

Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne is a novel about the adventures of Phileas Fogg and his servant Passerpartout. One day while Phileas Fogg is with some friends, he reads in a newspaper that it is possible to travel around the world in eighty days. No one believes this is true, except Phileas. Then Phileas bets them that he could make the journey in eighty or under days, and then leaves along with his servant immediately. The thing Jules Verne concentrates most on during Around the World in Eighty Days is how precise Phileas Fogg is.
In the beginning, Mr. Fogg fires his servant because the water he brought him to shave in was four degrees of the correct temperature. I thought this was quite comic.
When Mr. Fogg hires Passerpartout, he instructs him exactly when to prepare breakfast, exactly how hot his water should be and many other silly things. When Phileas is talking to his friends after making his bet he told them exactly when he would return and exactly where he would be.

One thing about Around the World in Eighty Days, is this entire notion of taking eighty days to travel around the world. When Jules Verne wrote this book, he probably had no idea about how much the world would advance. Today, with the technology we have, we can physically travel around the world in eighty hours. But also today, we have the power to travel around the world in about eight seconds with computers.

I enjoyed the novel but I all ready read it on swedish so i knew a lot of things before, but it was still interesting to read it because it was so long time ago i read it.

This book was very good and interesting to read and I recommend it!
