Publisher's Summary

Embark on an epic journey in this all-star cast audio dramatisation of Around the World in 80 Days. This new Original drama features best-in-class performances from Golden Globe-nominee, Emmy-nominee and multiple BAFTA-nominee Toby Jones (The Girl, Directorists, The Hunger Games) as Phileas Fogg, George Blagden (Versailles, Black Mirror, Vikings) as Jean Passerpartout and Don Gilet (Eastenders, Dr Who) as Detective Fix amongst others.  

One of the most celebrated tales of all time, Around the World in 80 Days is part high-octane thriller, part fascinating fantasy travelogue. Pragmatic gambler Phileas Fogg has made a gentlemanly wager to the members of his exclusive club: that he can circle the world in just 80 days, right down to the minute.

Fetching his newly appointed French valet, Fogg embarks on a fabulous journey across land and sea - by steamer, rail, and elephant - to win the bet of a lifetime. 

Inspired by Jules Verne’s own sea travels and his fascination with circumnavigating the globe, the avid dreamer's picaresque voyage inspired generations of adventurers who were eager to best Verne's challenge - from 19th century journalist Nellie Bly to Monty Python's Michael Palin.

Featuring: George Blagden, Christopher Brandon, John Chancer, Scarlett Courtney, Josh Cowdery, Tim Delap, Sartaj Garewal, Don Gilet, Chris Grahamson, David Holt, Ryan Forde Iosco, Toby Jones, Peter Luke Kenny, Naveed Khan, Christos Lawton, Jack Monaghan, Raad Rawi, Vineeta Rishi, Luke Roskell, Richard Rycroft, Adam Sims, Thomas Stroppel, Homer Todiwala, Matilda Tucker, Amy Vicary-Smith, Julian Wadham, Georgia Warlow, Orlando Wells, Sarah Whitehouse and Sam Woolf.

Good Dramatization but Abridged Version of Story

I'm on a quest to read (or listen to) hundreds of classic stories. I'm not sure, having completed this one, that I can check it off my list because this is an adaptation of the story (which I discovered belatedly), not the entire thing. It would be nice if that was advertised more clearly. I will have to be more vigilant about reading reviews of Audible books so I don't waste another four hours with a trimmed down version of a classic. Still, it was enjoyable for what it was.

Delightful

In these dark times with little travel, I enjoyed traveling Fog & Team. The dramatization was terrific & the story remains a timeless classic.

What a fun performance!

I wasn’t expecting such a lavish production, but was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t just one person reading the book, but a troupe of voice actors. I was totally engaged by the performance, which included sound effects and music. You can’t go wrong with Jules Verne, and this production kicked it up a notch.

An easy listen and exciting adventure!

A wonderful story, characters, voices. I always enjoy these fictional stories, and find some of my favorites do require 10+ hours even at 1.5x listening speed. For the ones that are 4 hours or less, this will not disappoint! It gives a quick listen/read without needing days to weeks to finish it. I kept looking for small windows of time for “what happens next??”....Well done!

Lots of fun for lovers of classic adventure

Loved every minute of it. The voice acting was good, and the sound effects were well done. My only complaints were no sound effect when a punch hit home, yes I know that doesn’t really sound as loud as movies portray them, but it would’ve been satisfying to hear a nice pop when he hit. Beyond that I think it would’ve added a lot more if there was more cultural styled music for every location when they were there instead of just the orchestra, and oriental music when they’re in Asia. Otherwise still a lot of fun, and will definitely recommend and listen to again while I drive.

Brilliant adaptation

This was a really fun romp - I love the way Anna Lea adapts classic fiction; she has a really light touch and manages to retain the style and energy of a novel whilst bringing it to life for audio perfectly. This is a great production - well performed and produced - and the story was a really fun and intriguing adventure for my otherwise boring commute!

Jules Verne Brought to Life

I have always enjoyed this book since a teenager, (now a pensioner), but this dramatisation was excellent. Thank you Audible.

Felt like I was a kid again, wonderfully narrated. This was my favourite book as a kid and it was great having it read in such a way. Really felt part of it.

As vivid as the movie

The sound effects, the dramatic happenings were so succinct in the story that gives a feeling of an imaginary movie playing right before your eyes. Thanks to all that got involved in the process and making of the audio book.

LOVE THIS EXCELLENT PRODUCTION

This is an excellent production that flows beautifully. Great acting by Toby Jones and credit to the rest of the cast who bring the story and all the characters to life. Have listened 3 times since purchasing the other day, it really is good clean entertainment that will make you smile. And I did not think I would like it, but I love it. Well done all. 👍

Wonderful and Wimsical

I have seen the film and watched Micharl Palin. But the book is just so much better. A really good yarn. Totally daft in places, but who cares? Recommended listening for any long car journey.
