Although some would argue it doesn't have the great literary merit of some novels written around the same time, Around the World in Eighty Days certainly makes up for it with its vivid descriptions. However, Fogg has missed the train and arrives in London five minutes late, certain he has lost the wager. Notebooking is a stress-free way to get in some extra writing and research time.

    In the interim, however, Fogg faces a number of challenges, including losing Passepartout to a Yokohama circus and being attacked by Native Americans in the Midwest. Yet when offered part of the reward money by Fix, Passepartout says he will never betray his master. Thus, the day he added to his clock throughout his journey would be removed upon crossing this imaginary line. Having started from Barcelona on May 11, he made his way westwards in chase of Xavier Degon and Antonin Guy to win the first rEVolutionary race around the world.

    Fogg is a brilliantly drawn character, a man who is stiff-upper-lipped and precise in all his habits. Please improve it by verifying the claims made and adding inline citations. So if they won 9 tricks in a round, they would earn 3 points. Filled with the thrill of adventure, Around the World in Eighty Days is a wonderful story, written with skill and no short order of panache.
