I still remember the smell of the book, picked from the "Classics for children" section, and how I opened it and started reading. I knew almost nothing of Victorian England, of travelling to exotic countries, of the honour connected to a wager, of foul play or of religious customs in other cultures or of nature's peculiarities in different geographical areas. According to my memory, I finished the story that same evening, and went back to the library the very next day to check out the entire stock of Jules Verne.
I might be wrong, knowing the strange turns memory takes when something is considered of special importance. It might have been two or three days later. It is a fact, though, that I read all of his novels that dark winter, one after the other, completely enthralled, completely lost in the storytelling.
And as fast as I was captured, I was released again. I had that Jules Verne spell, I loved it, but I never looked back.
I was done. Jules Verne made me realise the potential of books, helped me open the treasure chest of world literature, and he served as a bridge to ever bigger journeys around the literary world.
Around the World in 80 Days (Saddleback Classics)
I like to imagine that my journey around Jules Verne's universe took about 80 reading sessions, and that I returned the books to the library so much more enthusiastic about the world of reading that I was ready for my life as a reader. Afterwards I instinctively felt that those books should remain in my childhood, that I might find things in them I would find ludicrous or horrible now. But the initiation rite of reading Verne when I was an impressionable ten-year-old will always be a memory of great importance to me.
And of course I enjoy each minute my children spend with Jules Verne. Passepartout becomes convinced that Fix is a spy from the Reform Club.
Fix confides in Passepartout, who does not believe a word and remains convinced that his master is not a bank robber. To prevent Passepartout from informing his master about the premature departure of their next vessel, Fix gets Passepartout drunk and drugs him in an opium den.
Passepartout still manages to catch the steamer to Yokohama, but neglects to inform Fogg. Fogg discovers that he missed his connection. He searches for a vessel that will take him to Yokohama, finding a pilot boat that takes him and Aouda to Shanghai, where they catch a steamer to Yokohama. In Yokohama, they search for Passepartout, believing that he may have arrived there on the original boat.
Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne
They find him in a circus, trying to earn the fare for his homeward journey. In San Francisco they board a transcontinental train to New York, encountering a number of obstacles along the way: a massive herd of bison crossing the tracks, a failing suspension bridge, and the train being attacked by Sioux warriors.
After uncoupling the locomotive from the carriages, Passepartout is kidnapped by the Indians, but Fogg rescues him after American soldiers volunteer to help. They continue by a wind powered sledge to Omaha , where they get a train to New York.
He finds a steamboat destined for Bordeaux, France. He then bribes the crew to mutiny and make course for Liverpool. Against hurricane winds and going on full steam, the boat runs out of fuel after a few days.
Fogg downloads the boat from the captain and has the crew burn all the wooden parts to keep up the steam.
The companions arrive at Queenstown Cobh , Ireland, in time to reach London before the deadline. Once on British soil, Fix produces a warrant and arrests Fogg. A short time later, the misunderstanding is cleared up—the actual robber was caught three days earlier in Edinburgh. However, Fogg has missed the train and returns to London five minutes late, certain he lost the wager.
Fogg apologises to Aouda for bringing her with him, since he now has to live in poverty and cannot support her.
Aouda confesses that she loves him and asks him to marry her. He calls for Passepartout to notify the minister.
The wager can still be won, but there is very little time left. Passepartout hurries to inform Fogg, who reaches the Reform Club just in time to win the wager.
Fogg marries Aouda and the journey around the world is complete.They saw the supposedly dead rajah rise up and run off. Since he cannot secure a warrant in time, Fix boards the steamer the Mongolia conveying the travelers to Bombay.
Complete the short-term project on the back of this sheet. The train speeds ahead at a dangerous rate; no one knows how to stop it. In San Francisco they board a transcontinental train to New York, encountering a number of obstacles along the way: a massive herd of bison crossing the tracks, a failing suspension bridge, and the train being attacked by Sioux warriors.
