December 13, 2012 Around the World in 80 Days. My letter to the author,

Jules Verne December, 2012
Dear Mr. Jules Verne,

I truly honor your book, "Around the World in 80 Days". Your book had good details about the characters. You described them very well, like Phileas Fogg, Passepartout, and all of the characters were explained so well I could imagine what they looked like! For example, when you were talking about Phileas Fogg's schedule every day, I could imagine what it looked like, probably like what the school schedule is. (8:00 wake up, 8:23 breakfast, 9:37 shave, etc.) I especially liked the parts when it was suspenseful like a cliffhanger or the climax. Going back to the story, when you wrote, "having made it around the world in 80 days, he arrived just five minutes too late- he had lost the bet!" Last line of chapter 16.

In my opinion, this was a cliffhanger ending this chapter with suspense. Lastly, the book that you wrote, had places that Phileas Fogg went where I didn't even know about those places! For example, I didn't know about Dover, England when Mr. Fogg was leaving to go there, I didn't know where Turin, Italy is and I didn't know where Brindisi was where Mr. Fogg and Passepartout were taking a train to there. These were information I didn't know and that was very good geography. By writing this book, you taught me that an on time person is always successful in different scenarios. I also like this book because it shows how a man can use different ways of transportation to get to places like a hot air balloon or elephant or boat. In conclusion, I would give your book a 5 star rating because it was perfect. Thanks for reading my letter and thank you for writing this book so I could do it for my project.
