Book: Around the World in 80 Days
Movie: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Song: Leavin' on a Jet Plane - the Peter, Paul, and Mary version is my favorite - I even learned how to play it on my ukulele!

Definitely a classic of science fiction. It can be frustrating to get through some of the long lists of fish or the overly precise coordinates given and the action is a little underwhelming. However there is a sense of adventurous travel and camaraderie with the characters that make the book endearing by the end.

I found those great scarves perfect to show your bookworm style every where : the white one has a quote from pride and prejudice on it (about the need of libraries) and the blue one a quote from twenty thousand leagues under the sea (about the sea). My two loves books and the sea. Found them on literati club :)
And only here am I really sure people will understand the joy of it :)

I read this between Oct 1 & 6 and rated it 3 ⭐️. It‘s my first time reading Verne and maybe not the best one to start with it. It is rather slow paced and a but boring. It quickly becomes apparent to the reader what is happening but Verne takes too long to come to the conclusion.

Well... you could say I‘m disappointed. Zoophytes, cetacea, sturgeons, oxyrhynchi-blah blah blah! The story was told from the perspective of a scientist, but man, he droned on and on and on about fauna for ongoing paragraphs, which lead to pages. It felt more like homework than an engaging novel. Did I still like premise? Yes. Were the characters interesting and unique? Yes. Was the book super boring and wouldn‘t end? ABSOLUTELY.
