Overview

Although it is now possible to travel the world in hours rather than weeks, Jules Verne's classic tale of a race against the clock has never lost its power to thrill, and it is brought to new life in this beautifully illustrated and elegantly bound edition. In 1872, Mr. Phileas Fogg, a gentleman of precision and predictability, and his manservant, the ever resourceful Passepartout, ride through India on an elephant, sail the South China Sea in the teeth of a typhoon, and cross the snow-covered plains of the American Wild West in order to fulfill a wager that the journey can be completed in just 80 days. The acrobatic and inquisitive Passepartout can seldom keep out of trouble, and while he is pursued by irate Indian priests, is drugged in an opium den, and saves a runaway train, his master's composure is never broken as the hours tick away on his precisely accurate pocket watch. But Phileas Fogg is above all a gentleman, and stopping to save the life of a beautiful young widow may cost him his fortune. The ill-assorted but determined trio must use all of their ingenuity and some remarkable vehicles to race back to London. Will they make it in time?

Aunque es posible hoy en día recorrer el mundo entero en horas en lugar de semanas, el relato clásico de Julio Verne de una carrera contra el reloj nunca ha perdido su poder para emocionar, y cobra vida nueva en esta edición hermosamente ilustrada y elegantemente encuadernada. En 1872 el señor Phileas Fogg, un caballero inglés que confía en la precisión y la previsibilidad, y su sirviente capaz Passepartout viajan a través de la India a lomos de elefante, cruzan el Mar de la China meridional en paquebote y cruzan las llanuras nevadas del salvaje Oeste americano para cumplir una apuesta de que el viaje se puede completar en 80 días. El acrobático e inquisitivo Passepartout no cesa de meterse en problemas de todo tipo, y mientras es perseguido por clérigos hindúes furiosos, es drogado en una sala de opio y rescata un tren fuera de control, la serenidad de su amo nunca se ve afectada mientras las horas pasan por su tan preciso reloj. Pero Phileas Fogg es ante todo un caballero, y el haber parado para salvar la vida de una joven viuda linda podría costarle su fortuna. El trío mal avenido pero determinado tiene que usar todo su ingenio y una serie de vehículos extraordinarios para regresar a Londres. ¿Llegarán a tiempo?
