I recently reread this book for this first time since I had to in school, many years ago. Although it seems a fairly simplistic read, it still has a plot, while plausible and adventures, also plausible, that kept me wanting to keep reading it and finish the entire story. Phileus Fogg and his servent Passeportout make up the main characters, almost in an odd couple styling. Traveling by any means necessary to win a bet (not the money, but the honor) they are constantly playing off of each other with their conflicting attitudes. I would recommend this for any young reader, it is a classic and easy to read and quick as well. For an older reader or an adult, in today's view it can seem simplistic and dated, and unchallenged, but it is still a great work by Jules Verne. To anyone who hasn't read it, go for it, you have nothing to lose except a couple hours in which you can be with the imagery and travel to Egypt, India, Japan, American and back to London in a simpler time, yet many of the problems put into the path of Fogg, one can relate to today in their modern versions.

    Not best format

    Im going to look for another edition. This one has the title of the book halfway down each page which is distracting and every paragraph is spread out with line breaks.

    Impossible to Read

    I got through the content pages, which ALSO had horrible typos and seemed to change from regular typeface into Wingdings - and then this dissolved into a mess of symbols and was indecipherable. I would give it zero stars if possible. Get it for free from Project Guttenberg instead!

    Around the World way to slow.

    I had to read this book for my summer reading a couple of years ago, and I hated it. The general story of traveling around the world in 80 days was interesting but it was boring and a slow read. I am a fast reader, if I like a book I can manage to read it in one or two days if I don't have a lot to do but this book took me forever to finish it. The story progressed slowly. I would never reccomend this book. It is not my style.
