AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS
Based on the novel “Around The World In Eighty Days” by Jules Verne, the character that I like is Phileas Fogg. I like Phileas Fogg because he is disciplined. He wants everything done with perfect timing. For example, he wakes up at precisely eight o‟clock in the morning and has breakfast exactly twenty three minutes later.
Furthermore, Phileas Fogg is patient. He does not panic easily if things are not done his way. Although the ship falls behind schedule, he remains calm.
In conclusion, these are the reasons why I like Phileas Fogg. He is a role model. His discipline and patience are admirable.
Based on the novel “Around The World In Eighty Days” by Jules Verne, the character that I admire is Phileas Fogg. I admire him because he is kind. He wants everyone who travels with him to be comfortable and safe. He makes sure that Aouda has her own cabin and provides everything she needs. He also offers to pay Passepartout‟s bail of two thousand pounds so that Passepartout need not go to jail.
Phileas Fogg is kind as he is willing to go all out to help anyone. For example, he saves Auoda when she is kidnapped by the bandits. He had to cut open the wall of the hut to rescue her.
These are some examples of how kind Phileas Fogg is. Although he is engrossed with his own problems, he still thinks of the safety of others and how to help them when they are in danger.
Based on the novel “Around The World In Eighty Days” by Jules Verne, the
moral value I want to talk about is gratitude.This moral value is shown in Passespartout and Aouda. Passepartout is grateful when Phileas Fogg saves him from going to prison. Fogg has to pay two thousand pounds for his bail. Passespartout is touched by this gesture because he knows that Fogg does not have to pay for his mistakes. That is why he tries so hard to please Phileas Fogg all the time.
Aouda is grateful for things that have been done for her. She appreciates Phileas Fogg for rescuing her from the bandits and being kind to her throughout the trip. Fogg provides a cabin for her and makes sure she is safe. In return she is willing to marry Phileas even though she knows that he has no money.
Passepartout and Aouda are grateful for all the help they have received. We should always be thankful when we receive help from others.
Based on the novel “Around The World In Eighty Days” by Jules Verne, one of the events that I find memorable is when Phileas Fogg and Passepartout rescue Aouda from the bandits.
While travelling through the forest in India, Fogg, Sir Francis, Ali and Passepartout rescue the daughter of a wealthy merchant who is held captive in a hut by the bandits. Even though they do not know her, they go all out to save her.
Another reason why this event is memorable is how the four men manage to get Aouda out of the hut. They work together to break the wall of the hut and escape from the bandits.
The above event is very memorable to me because they went through a lot of trouble to save a stranger.
Based on the novel “Around The World In Eighty Days” by Jules Verne, the theme of determination is clearly shown by Phileas Fogg. He puts in great effort in everything that he does. Fogg’s determination and perseverance led him to overcome many obstacles.
One of the examples of a difficult obstacle that Fogg overcomes is when he decides to rescue Aouda. He and his companions cut through the wall of a hut to set her free. They almost lost their lives when the bandits shot arrows at them.
Another example is when he goes to the extent of buying the ship from Captain Speedy just to reach Liverpool on time. When they are short of coal, he orders the crew to burn parts of the ship to keep the ship going.
The examples above show the determination in Phileas Fogg.
The Most Interesting Setting in the Novel
I have chosen the novel entitled ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ written by Jules Verne. The novel tells about a gentleman named Phileas Fogg who goes around the world in 80 days with his butler, Jean Passepartout as they embark on journey which is full of adventures and surprises.
The most interesting setting is the hut where Aouda is imprisoned by the kidnappers. This setting is the most interesting setting because it is the place where Phileas Fogg’s rescue actions start. First and foremost, Phileas Fogg waits until it is dark and goes to the hut, he cuts open the hut and rescues Aouda who looks half-dead. In addition to this, Phileas Fogg quickly runs and climbs onto Kiouni when the bandits chase after them. Phileas Fogg safely tucks Aouda in one of the howdahs with her still sleeping soundly. Last but not least, to make sure Aouda is safe, Phileas Fogg offers to take Aouda to Hong Kong, his next destination.
In conclusion, the most interesting setting in the novel is the hut where Aouda is imprisoned by the kidnappers. This place is the most interesting place because it is the place where Phileas Fogg’s rescue actions start. Finally, the two of them are safe. They get married and live happily ever after.
