Jules Verne – Around the World in 80 days

I usually have three or four books on the go, one or two I’m reviewing, one of my choice, and a ‘classic’ I read a chapter at a time in between. Really enjoyed reading this again, for the first time since I was a kid. Very good book for its time.

      I bought the complete works of Jules Verne on e-reader earlier this year (it is enormous). I am slowly working my way through it. Like many I had not read Jules Verne since childhood – but my goodness they are great stories. Proper storytelling from a distant time and thoroughly recommended. I do know the English translations tend to air-brush many of the original sentiments in the original French.
      I haven’t got to Around the World in 80 Days yet.

      I loved it, and have bought his entire works too
