Around the World in Eighty Days (Kobo eBook)
A classic tale of adventure from renowned French author Jules Verne.
Originally published in 1872, Around the World in Eighty Days imagined for readers the possibility of circumnavigating the world when the prospect of such a feat was still in its infancy. After an argument with colleagues at London’s Reform Club, the wealthy Phileas Fogg wagers £20,000 that he can circumnavigate the globe in eighty days, and then sets out that very evening with his servant Passepartout. A series of adventures on the seas and rails—as well as the presence of a detective from Scotland Yard who mistakes Fogg for a wanted criminal—provide readers with intriguing plot twists along the way. Will Fogg make it back to London in time?
