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 a good nook edition

    Difficult to read. It was not digitized well. There are random symbols throughout and frequently sentences are cut off.

    "Wrong interior"

    The "See Inside" function does not let you look at the interior of this book-- it shows "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" by Mark Twain. What's the purpose of letting us 'peak' at the contents if the book is not the one shown? Please correct.
