Around the world in 80 days
The book is: Around the world in 80 days by Jules
Verne. The book has 111 pages and the publisher is Vince.
We read the book because the teacher told us to and also because we saw the movie, so we thought it was very interesting.
The main characters are: Phileas Fogg who is the central character of the book; afterwards comes Jean Passpartout who is Phileas Fogg manservant and, finally, Mrs. Aouda who is the woman Fogg saves from burning alive.
Other characters are: Ralph Gautier and Andrew Stuart who are the ones that bet Phileas Fogg to travel the world in 80 days. Also another one is Inspector Fix, who blames Phileas Fogg for stealing the fifty thousand pounds from the bank of England.
Plot summary: Around the world in 80 days is an adventurous book that tells how Phileas Fogg back in 1872, an English rich gentleman, makes a bet that he can go around the world in 80 days. In his journey he is accompanied by his French manservant, Passepartout. During his journey, he meets Mrs. Aouda in Bombay. It tells us how their adventures are and how sometimes situations don’t always go as we plan them. Our personal thoughts about Around the world in 80 days are that no matter how bad the situation is, we always have to move on, never give up and find better alternatives. We also liked the book because is very amusing and very interesting, because when you start reading Around the world in 80 days you don’t want to leave the book.
The book is full of love, adventures and friendship. We also think and know that Jules Verne has made history by the books he has written and personally we think this is our favorite.
