Around the World in 80 Days read by Harry Burton

(Naxos Records Aug. 1, 2006)
Jules Verne - Around The World in Eighty Days read by Harry Burton. To take on the bet – to go around the world in eighty days, faster than anyone had gone before – was madness. If Phileas Fogg missed a single connection, he would lose L20,000. Phileas Fogg was an eccentric Englishman who lived a quiet ordered life and believed that with technology and planning, nothing was unforeseeable. But he could not plan for the ebullient nature of his French servant, Passepartout, for the adventures that crop up on their journey and with the totally unexpected collision with romance. The humor and freshness of Verne's writing - vivid dispatches from a newly accessible world - make Around The World in Eighty Days an ideal subject for audiobook. Jules Verne would have approved. Abridged by Lesley Young, produced by Nicholas Soames.
