Jules Verne''s masterpiece of adventure fiction that has captured the imaginations of generations of readers and continues to enthrall us today.

On October 2, 1872, an English gentleman makes a remarkable wager: He can travel around the entire world in a mere eighty days.

With twenty thousand pounds at stake, Fogg’s mission is complicated by an incredible case of mistaken identity that sends a Scotland Yard detective in hot pursuit in what becomes a riveting race against time and an action-packed odyssey into the unknown.
