Starman The Truth Behind the Legend of Yuri Gagarin yS it seems like he has an amazing past If he hasn t been present and that is just what is built up by the writing in this book I am speechless His trusty French manservant is amazing too Not for a long time have two characters been so three dimensional and have I truly cared about them so much in 200 or so pages This dude is clever he worries like he is always ruining the plan but he is very loyal apt gymnast and sometimes a lifesaverOther characters Fix a stalking policeman and Aouda a rescued Indian damsel are amazingly created colourful characters tooI don t want to say too much of the story but it takes places all over the world London China India Japan HK America Liverpool amongst others Full of amazing set pieces that whilst being gripping always bring a smile toour face Traveling on an elephant to rescue a lady due to be burnt to the death fighting bandits on railway lines in the US are just a couple of these many amazing incidents I was expecting a scene with a hot air balloon which I see in all the film version advertisements which spoiler is not In The BookI Do Think bookI do think later I am going to watch the Steve Coogan Jackie Chan version of this to how it compares Once again my Goodreads friends this was free on Kindle Check it outLove as always James xwwwyouandibookswordpresscom Mum could we travel the world in the same way that Phileas Fogg and Passepartout didThe uestion propels me back in Around the World in Eighty Days was first published by Jules Verne in 1873 and was introduced to an adoring public as monthly installments Each chapter is thus seen as connected but with its own hooks and cliffhangers The character of Phileas Fogg has become
a stoic archetype for too cool operators in books to come in several genres This stoic archetype for too cool operators in books to come in several genres This fast moving and fun still a good read over a hundred ears later One very interesting aspect of the narrative was the portrait of the American west in the 1870s from a European perspective 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 Shockingly enough I still remembered the ending 20 ears laterJust the task Phileas Fogg faces in traveling the world in 80 days in the 19th century and the obstacles that pop up to delay his travels would make for a fabulous story but the element of a cat and mouse chase really puts this book over the top I highly recommend it for anyone who loves grand adventure stories I can see why Jules Verne is touted as one of the finest French authors He is deserving of all accolades.

Through The Book In No Time And The 80 Daysthe book in no time and the 80 days by in a jiffy The events in the book are fast paced and so is the journey of Mr Phileas Fogg and Mr Passeportout Is he just a gentleman trying to prove a point or a criminal mastermind on the run Mr Fogg has set up a wager with his rich friends that heanyone can travel the world in 80 days He doesn t spend time worrying about something that may or may not happen he just takes informed actions and finds a way to do the things anyway I wish to travel the world in a similar fashion It would be fun I thoroughly enjoyed this book I usually prefer long books with lots of details and drawn out adventures but once in a while it s nice to read a shorter story where lots of things happen This is the third book by Jules Verne I ve Read And I Loved All Three Of and I loved all three of The story just brought me a lot of joy and it was fun to read it His way of storytelling is simply amazing and ahead of his time There isn t a lot I can say it s just a nice little fun book to read in between I definitely recommend it Truly would ou not for less than that make a tour around the worldThis is the second Verne book I have devoured in two days which have both been accredited four five stars I could end the review at that and I would be contentSimilar to The Journey to the Centre of the Earth which I read esterday Verne creates amazingly awesome and complex characters The main protagonist Mr Fogg is an obsessive compulsive routine loving timekeeper who bets his chums at the club that he can travel around the world in 80 days which a newspaper said was possible if no delays were incurred He is so deep that so much is beneath the surface of this uiet content gentleman Never fearing or worrying whatever dilemmas are thrown in his path and always willing to fail the mission to help his friends He is also very good at handling a boat I have to ask does anyone know if he has been in any of Verne s previous stories Hn Schiff Elefant oder Schlitten #150; in atemberaubender Ruhe lässt der elegante junge Herr Landschaften und Städte und Abenteuer an sich vorbeiziehen bis ihm am Ende die Zeit doch beinahe aus. Well So I do believe I saved a book s life About to be tossed away being a pariah of the garage sale variety I not only took it home I READ it Aglow with endearing cliches this is the source of plenty of adventure stories many of which are films comics etc Verne s imagination is grand the plot is silly and almost kid like But absurd it ain t It is fun exactly because there is a topsy turvy madness to visiting places just to prove a point It is fun because it is rife with interesting observations factoids themes that in Verne s day were barely in development There is romance the plot is thick with well things happening a ticking clock looms a large shadow and a velocity is masterfully established that seems almost incredibly doable the reader wants to experience this Airplanes suck ass anyway The chance which now seems lost may present itself at the last moment I got this novel from my cousin It s her course book I didn t want to read this novel because it s out of my taste It s neither Fantasy nor Sci Fi But she made me to read this Well this book was good Really good But I didn t like it the way I should haveI just got little bored of these adventuresIt s the story of a man named Phileas Fogg who bets his friends that he Can Make The Tour make the tour the world in 80 days The reward of winning is 20000 pounds which is a huge amount considering it in those days He with his servant goes to this voyage But the problem is in those days there happens a huge robbery in the bank And the description of the robber matches with Mr Fogg So that Detective Fix is after him during this tour I liked the character of Mr Fogg This man doesn t worry about anything I haven t read such a calm character et I want to be like this but I can t help it My cousin had already watched its movie adaptation She gave me the spoiler and I was always waiting for it BUT that never came And that s
good thing Seems movie is different than this book And that ending was kind of I don t know hurried Anyway I didn t mind itAll in all it s a good classic I would have enjoyed it a lot if I was a classic reader I see that it is by no means useless to travel if a man wants to see something new 1 I hated it 32 ears ago and still hate it starA couple days ago my son and I were talking about boring classroom reading material This reminded me that I never rated this glorious piece of classic literature How anyone would insist that students had to mandatorily read it in the 80s is beyond me let alone in the 21st century A couple ears ago when my son came home with that little paperback edition and whined about how incredibly uninteresting this gem is I calmed him down by saying that I felt for him because it bored me to tears.
