La vuelta al mundo en 80 días/Around the wolrd in eighty days. E-book. Formato PDF

Un ebook di  Verne Jules  edito da Narcissus.me, 2014

El flemático y solitario caballero británico Phileas Fogg abandonará su vida de escrupulosa disciplina para cumplir con una apuesta con sus colegas del Club Reformista (Reform Club), en la que arriesgará la mitad de su fortuna comprometiéndose a dar la vuelta al mundo en sólo ochenta días usando los medios disponibles en la segunda mitad del siglo XIX y siguiendo el proyecto publicado en el Morning Chronicle, su periódico de lectura cotidiana. Lo acompañará su recién contratado mayordomo francés, y tendrá que lidiar no sólo con los retrasos en los medios de transporte, sino con la pertinaz persecución del detective Fix, que, ignorando la verdadera identidad del caballero, se enrola en toda la aventura a la espera de una orden de arresto de la Corona británica, en la creencia de que, antes de partir, Fogg robó el Banco de Inglaterra. The story starts in London on Tuesday, October 1, 1872. Fogg is a rich English gentleman living in solitude. Despite his wealth, Fogg lives a modest life with habits carried out with mathematical precision. Very little can be said about his social life other than that he is a member of the Reform Club. Having dismissed his former valet, James Foster, for bringing him shaving water at 84 °F (29 °C) instead of 86 °F (30 °C), Fogg hires a Frenchman by the name of Jean Passepartout as a replacement. At the Reform 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. He accepts a wager for £20,000 (equal to about £1.6 million today) from his fellow club members, which he will receive if he makes it around the world in 80 days. Accompanied by Passepartout, he leaves London by train at 8:45 P.M. on Wednesday, October 2, 1872, and is due back at the Reform Club at the same time 80 days later, Saturday, December 21, 1872.
