This is one of my all time favorites and I was pleased when it became available in digital format.

Disappointing book, one of the few that I've quit reading in the middle. As the overview above states, "sits cleverly alongside Verne's original tale", is an apt description of this book. Farmer doesn't re-write the original tale, but expects the reader to know every detail of the Verne novel. There is no attempt to set the scene in any chapter, and ultimately each scene make no sense without the context of the original work. After just finishing "Captain Nemo" by Kevin J. Anderson (highly recommended), I was hoping for another entertaining "Alternate" history of the characters Fogg and Nemo.

I was unaware that this is one of a series of novels that combines characters from one or more seemily unrelated stories. In this case, it is Phileas Fogg and his valet on their 80 day quest getting mixed up with characters from Verne as well as A.C. Doyle.

Difficult to follow, ultimately boring.
