Jules Gabriel Verne is often referred to as the “father of sci-fi genre”, having authored such wonderful books as A Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. In his book Around the World in 80 Days, Jules Verne narrates a tale of an extraordinary voyage undertaken by Phileas Fogg and Jean Passepartout. Phileas Fogg, the protagonist bets his companion £20,000 that he can circumnavigate the globe in eighty days. On this adventure, his companion is his emotional French valet Jean Passepartout. The two of them overcome a series of hurdles which present themselves in form of storms, natural disasters, kidnappings and of course the unyielding Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard in order to win the bet.

For some reason I finish books that I don't like; I feel obligated to read it even when I don't want to. Sometimes to my supprise the book manages to garner me into its world and I just might look for more of the same.

Books can bring the best, most amazing excitement there is...or make you cry or give you just the words you needed to hear....So why are people senselessly taking drugs and doing stupid brainless stuff to occupy themselves...they simply haven't found the joy of a quite book that never changes or shouts back in their face....life could be so much better if we all would just pick up a book and read something worthwhile. :) Books are truly awesome!
