Award-winning voice actor Michael Prichard triumphs in his performance of the beloved adventure novel Around the World in Eighty Days by the prolific French writer Jules Verne, a pioneer of the science fiction genre. One day at the Reform Club, Englishman Phileas Fogg accepts a wager of 20,000 pounds to travel the globe in 80 days. He departs London with his new valet, Passepartout, on the evening of October 2. By land and sea, he journeys to India, Hong Kong, Japan, and the United States. Is it possible for him to complete this Herculean task in the allotted time? (Translation by George Makepeace Towle.)
