All three stories are entertaining and educational, more so because each one ends in an epilogue that tells what happened to each figure after their story is done. Around the World in 80 Books takes us on a tour of the author’s global head, and while expanding our knowledge it enlarges our capacity for fellow-feeling. On the evening of 2 October 1872, while at the Club, Fogg gets involved in an argument over an article in The Daily Telegraph stating that with the opening of a new railway section in India, it is now possible to travel around the world in 80 days. Flights won the Man Booker International prize in 2018, and Tokarczuk was awarded the Nobel Prize the next year.

Another musical version, 80 Days, with songs by Ray Davies of the Kinks and a book by playwright Snoo Wilson, directed by Des McAnuff, ran at the Mandell Weiss Theatre in San Diego from 23 August to 9 October 1988, receiving mixed responses from the critics.

Jules Verne – Around the World in Eighty Days, a 4-part drama adaptation in 2010 by Terry James and directed by Janet Whittaker for BBC Radio 7 (now BBC Radio 4 Extra), starred Leslie Phillips as Phileas Fogg, Yves Aubert as Passepartout and Jim Broadbent as Sergeant Fix. In Around the World in 80 Trees, Jonathan Drori uses plant science to illuminate how trees play a role in every part of human life, from the romantic to the regrettable.

Hundreds of fun objects are hidden inside full-colour photo puzzles of our world's flags, foods, landmarks, animals, customs and more. In interviews in 1894 and 1904, Verne says the source was "through reading one day in a Paris cafe" and "due merely to a tourist advertisement seen by chance in the columns of a newspaper. So, bravo for this three-part graphic novelization of the lives of three people who circled our planet.helping the reader understand the characters' inner lives, their motivations and ambitions and frustrations. American William Perry Fogg traveled the world, describing his tour in a series of letters to The Cleveland Leader newspaper, entitled, Round the World: Letters from Japan, China, India, and Egypt (1872). The thematic nature of the book gave Phelan a kind of out -- as if he decided he didn't have to fully develop the story lines because travel itself was doing all the work of stakes, plot, etc for him.
