Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne is a classic adventure novel that follows Phileas Fogg and his valet Passepartout as they attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days to win a bet that would be worth over $2,000,000 today.
This was the worst book I have ever read. The plot is very undeveloped. The title gives the ending away and explains the whole plot of the book. I would not recommend this book to anyone. (*Spoiler*) The only two important events are when the main character and his butler save a girl in India, and when the detective realizes that the main character didn't steal any money. This book had no eloquence, and should not be considered a classic let alone a book.
At times there is far too much description of the locations traveled, but the book is full of unexpected turns and has the suspense of a mystery thriller.
