Author: Jules Verne
This book is about the author himself in this story, it is because he has been deeply involved in its startling events, events doubtless among the most extraordinary which this twentieth century will witness.
When I was a young boy, in the 1960's, I saw the movie "The Master of the World". It was based on Jules Verne's book which I just read.
The premise of that story was an air voyage with the Captain of an airship, throughout the entire story.
Reading the original story; I found myself more awestruck by Verne's genius.
Eccentric English man, Phileas Fogg, wagers his fortune that he can circumnavigate the world in 80 days, much to the astonishment of his London Club.
