Around the World in Eighty Days PDF

Jules Verne

Having assured the members of Londons exclusive Reform Club that he will circumnavigate the world in 80 days, Fogg - stiff, repressed, English - starts by joining forces with an irrepressible Frenchman, Passepartout, and then with a ravishing Indian beauty, Aouda. Together they slice through jungles, over snowbound passes, even across an entire isthmus - only to get back five minutes late. Fogg faces despair and suicide, but Aouda makes a new man of him, able to
face even the Reform Club again.

Around the World in Eighty Days (1872) contains a strong dose of post-Romantic reality plus extensive borrowing from the authors own Journey to England and Scotland - but not a shred of science fiction. Its modernism lies instead in the experimental literary technique, with parallel plots, a narrator constantly made to look foolish, four characters in search of their own unconscious, and a unique twisting of space and time.

Vernes classic, a bestseller for over a century, has never appeared in a critical edition before. William Butchers stylish new translation moves as fast and as brilliantly as Foggs own journey.
