    When an eccentric Englishman named Phileas Fogg makes a daring wager that he can circle the globe in just eighty days, it’s the beginning of a breathlessly-paced world tour. With his devoted servant Passepartout at his side, Fogg sets off on an adventurous journey filled with amazing encounters and wild mishaps. Pursued all the way by the bumbling Detective Fix, who believes the two travelers are bank robbers on the run, Fogg and Passepartout must use every means of transportation known to 19th-century man - including a hot-air balloon, a locomotive, and an elephant - to win the bet.

    Darwin8u says: "A straightforward adventure/exploration story"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The book moved along at a nice pace, and the subplot of the thief kept us wondering. We used the story as part of our geography lesson, and we tracked the main character's movement throughout the story. The reader did a great job on all voice performances, too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters and the suspense of the story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The bartering for the elephant scene.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was too long for that, but we did use it on a long car ride. Perfect! Everyone enjoyed it.
