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. This thrilling tale of race against time grips the audience’s attention from the word go.

I love books and admit that I collect them endlessly...although, I find that as life wears on, I too am only too short of time and must be selective. I don't want to miss a great read, yet, so many books today are drivel - especially those under the bloody modern idea of "self help". (Get a Bible!) As to other genres, I have found that those with wisdom, wit and intellect are the best for the mind...and the soul. You cannot beat classical literature, a good mystery, or a Victorian classic to woo the muse of one's imagination.

I seem to go through phases. Months of mysteries, then ages of archaeology... with only occasional oddities thrown in to cleanse my palate. I don't particularly care for romances unless they are memoirs, and I don't read vampires except the original Dracula (and then histories of the myth), and not much science fiction. Otherwise...bring it on!
