Around the world in eighty days

 

The story revolves around Phileas Fogg as he accepts a bet to travel around the world in Eighty days; it should be remembered that this book was developed in the last century when travel between continents was restricted to huge ships. Given this, it is hard to fathom how Verne managed to craft a story that spanned several continents; this is why it is one of the top 10 books by Jules Verne.
