Jules Gabriel Verne (1828–1905) was a French poet, playwright, and novelist famous for his well-documented novels set in the second half of the nineteenth century, including “Journey to the Center of the Earth” (1864) and “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas” (1870). Besides novels, he also produced many short stories, plays, poems, literary studies, and autobiographical accounts. Verne had a significant impact on surrealism and the literary avant-garde in France and Europe, and is considered to be among its most important authors. Part of his “Voyages extraordinaires” series of best-selling adventure novels, “Around the World in Eighty Days” (1872) is the classic tale of Phileas Fogg and his newly-employed French valet Passepartout who embark on a quest to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days for a £20,000 bet. One of Verne’s most famous and celebrated work, “Around the World in Eighty Days” has inspired many real-life attempts to follow Fogg’s trip as well as numerous plays, films, games, and more. Highly recommended for fans of classic adventure fiction. Read & Co.
