Publisher's Summary

Undoubtedly one of the most celebrated tales of all time, this is both high-octane thriller and fascinating travelogue. Phileas Fogg, intrepid Victorian gentleman about town, accepts a wager that he cannot travel around the world in 80 days. Naturally, he immediately sets off, accompanied by his French manservant, Passepartout. They are pursued by a police officer, Detective Fix, who is foolishly convinced that Fogg is a bank robber. Much hilarity ensues. On the way, Fogg bravely rescues Aouda, a beautiful Indian princess, from a ceremony of ritual sacrifice. Unexpectedly, our thriller becomes a love story.

Around the world in 80 days

What a fantastic adventure! I love this narrator. Bill Homewood absolutely makes this story come alive. I highly recommend this book.

Absolutely Gripping

A fantastic story set in the Victorian world, with ups and downs and a fair bit of sly humour, all conveyed superbly by the narrator, who never fails to keep you deeply enthralled in the plot and the characters.

Pick this up, you won't regret it.

Fun, exciting, original adventure!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this classic book, the narration of which was pretty perfect, doing the excellent story writing justice. This is a fun adventure story! Modern readers will notice several derogatory racial slurs and stereotypes, but they aren’t the dominant trend, and on the flip side, the British white colonialism that was flourishing at this point in history is also often referred to, often in disparaging ways. I wouldn’t let these few antiquated ways prevent me from enjoying the story, and I am of an ethnicity referred to terribly within the book, so I’m not saying that from a standpoint of being untouched by it. I really loved the characters and twists and turns the story took. All around this is a great performance of a classic adventure story, and made the perfect, much needed distraction from the pains of the 2021 news cycle.

Deserves the hype.

I never read any Jules Verne and this was a great introduction to him. The book lives up to the hype. Wonderful captivating story, brilliantly written.

A thing of it’s time, still enjoyable

Well, this book entertained me, the voice actor was awesome!

I like the simplicity of the concept and it’s a nice easy listen. On the other hand, there are some rather questionable parts regarding different ethnicities. I however realise it’s a thing of it’s time, the book can still be appreciated but just be aware if you are particularly sensitive to this kind of issue.

A classic adventure perfectly retold

I loved Verne when I was a boy but missed a few of his books like this one. When my son started to read it, I wanted to go along the story as well so we could talk about it. I tried this audiobook and was immediately taken away by the incredible performance of Bill Homewood. It’s a joy to listen to - highly recommended!

Excellent reading, great story

Enjoyable classic, it might not have the same tension as modern thrillers but it is very cleverly constructed. Bill Homewood is one of my favourite narrators, he reads the books exceptionally well.
