La vuelta al mundo en 80 días

La fértil imaginación de Julio Verne nos pone en condiciones de disfrutar de las más arriesgadas aventuras, de las más apasionantes viajes. Nos muestra las éxoticas ciudades de Oriente, los paisajes de lejanas tierras, los mercados, los puertos, las selvas... y viajamos con él y con sus personajes sabiendo que olvidaremos en ocasiones el motivo y que nos dejaremos llevar por el paisaje y las emociones.

Un excéntrico y metódico inglés, un mayordomo dicharachero y una apuesta bastan a Julio Verne para proponeros un trepidante viaje alrededor del mundo. La costas de Arabia, las populosas ciudades de la India, las selvas, los bulliciosos puertos de Asia, las llanuras y montañas de América y los peligros de los océanos serán escenarios incomparables de las aventuras de Mr. Fogg y Picaporte.

I finished Around the World in 80 Days today and it was even better than I remembered from my childhood. Admittedly, the version I had read as a child was the Great Illustrated Classics edition that was, unfortunately, abridged. I felt that a reading of the unabridged classic was long overdue. Sh... ...more

Whether or not you've read the novel or watched the movie, Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days is so embedded in Western culture that just about everyone knows the basic plot premise: wealthy and reticent Englishman Phileas Fogg makes gentlemanly bet with his chums that he can travel arou... ...more

Really neat story. It was a fun view into life about a century ago.

My only nit with it was with the particular audio book I heard: an annoying afterward that publisher felt he had to append. In it, he explained to us how Mr. Verne's views of other cultures are simply not acceptable to modern peop... ...more

Definitely classic! My girlfriend bought me this book about two years ago, considering my fondness of adventure story. I wasn't really have a chance to read it at that time, thus I had just recently read it a few days ago–and to my surprise I did "round the world" in merely less than three days.

Una aventura con todas las de ley.
Me pasé toda la lectura del libro soñando despierta, calculando cuánto llevaría hacer ese recorrido en la actualidad, con los transportes modernos y cuántos días de margen daría eso para que, visitando brevemente cada lugar (tampoco si das la vuelta al mundo da i... ...more

Letto la prima volta da ragazzina, la bellezza di trentacinque anni fa. E anche oggi come allora, mi è sembrato di viaggiare insieme ai protagonisti, mi sono divertita da matti e mi sono ritrovata a seguirne tutto il percorso sulle cartine geografiche dell'atlante.
E pur conoscendone il finale, og... ...more
By Ademilson (Caxias do Sul, RS, Brazil) · ★★★☆☆ · March 19, 2015
Traveling around the world has become a quite common theme nowadays. Everyone dreams about visiting other places, going into an exchange program trip, absorbing another place's culture; human access to world's most different places is possible and, sometimes, even encouraged. Even though we no lo... ...more
By Bethan (Manchester, UK, The United Kingdom) · ★★★★☆ · September 16, 2013
Although written by a Frenchman, the protagonist is the straight and phlegmatic Phileas Fogg (he embodies the British cultural stereotype), who takes up a 20,000 bet in the 1870s, to travel around the world in eighty days. He takes his French manservant Passepartout with him and they encounter ad... ...more
