AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS

by | Read by Michael Palin

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1990

In 1988, British actor, writer, and humorist Michael Palin circum-navigated the globe, following the route taken by the fictional Phineas Fogg 115 years earlier. He stuck to transportation modes that would have been available to Fogg, discovering along the way that passenger ships are fewer but faster and that camels are tall. Palin writes well and is an accomplished actor. This is his story, and he tells it very well. Listeners familiar with Palin's acting, particularly in MONTY PYTHON, will find his skill with accents and voices undiminished. He can even sound American when he wants to. Longtime fans will be delighted to spend time in his company; listeners who don't know his work may discover a new friend. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
