Beschreibung

Shocking his stodgy colleagues at the exclusive Reform Club, enigmatic Englishman Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune, undertaking an extraordinary and daring enterprise to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days. With his French valet Passepartout in tow, Verne's hero traverses the far reaches of the earth, all the while tracked by the intrepid Detective Fix, a bounty hunter certain he is on the trail of a notorious bank robber.Combining exploration, adventure, and a thrilling race against time, Around the World in 80 Days gripped audiences upon its original publication and remains hugely popular to this day.This recording includes an afterword written by Starr LaTronica, the Youth Services Manager of the Four Country Library System in Vestal, NY, and Tim Ditlow, Publisher of Listening Library, that explains the context of Jules Verne's cultural references since his story was crafted using the predominant opinions and biases of his time.
