mail an: Around the world in 80 days The story is set in the 19 th century. We are introduced to Mr Fogg, a rich English gentleman who regularly goes to the Reform Club every evening. At one such visit to the club to play cards, he gets into a conversation with his fellow card players. He bets that he is able to go around the world in eighty days. He believes that it is possible and is challenged to complete the adventure. To prove it, he is going to have his passeport stamped in each country he travels through. Fix, the detective, follows Fogg all over. He believes that Fogg is the bank robber who has robbed a great sum from the Bank of England and wants to arrest him. He puts obstacles in Fogg’s path just so that he can arrest him whenever he gets the warrant from England. Passepartout, his servant, too wonders whether his master might be a robber though in his heart he has ample trust in Fogg’s integrity. On his way around the world he goes through Brindisi, Suez, Bombay, Calcutta, Hong Kong, New York and finally Liverpool. Fix arrests Fogg at Liverpool and this delays Mr Fogg. He thinks that he has missed the deadline and hasn't reached London in time when in reality he reached a full day earlier. In the end he wins his bet – he goes around the world in 80 days.
