Classic Victorian Novel

I shy away from translated works (was this not first published in French?) as you are at the mercy (or merci!) of the translator, but not so here...excellent adaptation and reading. As a time buff myself, I should have seen the ending coming, but did not, and was totally enthralled. The descriptions of Victorian era USA are worth the entire book. A great eye-opener for those of us (40+!!) who approached this work only from the Mike Todd film of the '60s....much more to it than that. Read and enjoy.

Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours

Around the World in 80 Days has been one of my favorite books for almost 60 years. Finding an edition narrated by Ralph Cosham was pure luck. Jules Verne is one of my favorite authors and Ralph Cosham is one of my favorite narrators.

French writer Jules Verne gave up his career as a lawyer in 1850 at age 22 to write plays, poetry, and novels. 13 years later he published the first of his 54 novels in his Voyages extraordinaires (Extraordinary Journeys in English) all published between 1863 and 1905, the year of his death. Around the World in 80 Day, published in 1873, is Book 11 in the series. Every novel in the series is thoroughly researched down to the most minor of details. Other well known novels in the series include Journey to the center of the Earth and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Verne's works have been translated into many languages.

Many of Verne's novels are classics. The appropriate genre of his Voyages extraordinaires
series is adventures. I highly recommend this edition of this audio book narrates by Ralph Cosham.
