I'm glad I read the book and not the movie that the network's summary appears to highlight. Jules Verne's writing can really place the reader into the story. I found the story intriguing because the main character Fogg could always find a new form of transportation when one avenue was blocked. "No, it was foreseen" -- Fogg's motto -- may be worth adopting! Don't miss reading this classic -- but remember you are in 1873!
