title = book report: around the world in 80 days
The book I read was Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne. The
main characters were Phileas Fogg, and Jean Passeportout. The setting was
all around the world.
The summary of the plot was simple. Mr. Phileas Fogg
bet twenty thousand pounds that he could make it around the world in eighty
days. Well, the whole story was about Mr. Fogg and his butler, Jean Passeportout,
trying to get around the world in eighty days. They traveled around the world
by every possible means, and to make things worse, the cops thought that Mr.
Fogg took some bank notes from the Bank of England. Because of this, a cop
chased them around until he can get a warrant for Mr. Fogg’s arrest.
didn’t like the book. Okay, there were some good parts but most of the book
was pretty boring. It was written in old English which was hard to understand.
The book also had names that were very hard to pronounce, such as the name
I think the author wrote the book to say if you believe in
something stick with it. I say this because Mr. Fogg believed that he could
travel around the world in eighty days, and he was willing, and did bet twenty
thousand pounds that he could travel around the world in eighty days. He also
showed this when Mr. Fogg was about a week behind he still never gave up.
