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.

An odd attempt to write a speculative novel around the holes in the plot of "Around the World in 80 Days". It's written in a detached style, as if someone from that time period was writing a report many years later. Because of the style, I didn't find this as successful as other efforts at tying together heroic fictional worlds. There are some clever explanations for such things as Verne's stating that all of London's clocks struck at ten minutes to nine, but the story feels hampered by it's skeleton of another book's time line.
