Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne

"Around the World in Eighty Days" was about a wealthy man named Phileas Fogg, who bets 20000 pounds on a bet while trying to convince some friends that one could travel around the entire world in 80 days.
This was a good book. The characters and atmosphere felt very real. The main plot was decent enough, though it didn't make much sense for someone to just gamble half their savings on such a risky venture. The book could also get a bit long winded at times, which could make some sections boring.
 "Around the World in Eighty Days" was a very enjoyable book, but not perfect, so it's worth.

4 Stars
