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.

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.

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.

The story wonderful, the narration excellent. A classic, classically read.


I must use 5 more words to satisfy Audibles requirements of a book review 🤪 here are 15 or more for good measure (and an emoji)
