"Around the World in Eighty Days" by Jules Verne is an adventure classic. The main character is Phileas Fogg, a rich British gentleman living in solitude. Despite his wealth, Fogg lives a modest life with habits carried out with mathematical precision. Very little can be said about his social life other than that he is a member of the Reform Club. Having dismissed his former valet, James Forster, for bringing him shaving water at 84 °F (29 °C) instead of 86 °F (30 °C), Fogg hires a Frenchman, Jean Passepartout as a replacement.

I like Verne's writing style. It is direct and not overly deceptive. It was a good narration.
