FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne.
Phileas Fogg is a man of regular orderly days, down to the minute. His acquaintances know where he will be and when, with perfect regularity. Discussion in the Reform Club turns to an article concerning a theorised journey around the world in only 80 days. From this a gentleman's bet is placed, and there is nothing more important to a gentleman than a bet!
Mr Fogg's life is thrown into turmoil as he commences the journey around the world. Taking his servant, one change of clothes, and a carpetbag stuffed with money, he starts leaping from train to train to steamer. Alas for him, his journey will not follow the carefully planned itinerary! Before the trip is over, there will be battles, rescues, arrests, mishaps and piracy.
