[Narrated by Michael Palin] Following on from his highly successful television series and book, the indefatigable Michael Palin brings his incredible story to audio, recapturing all the excitement of his original expedition. Complete with visas, running shoes, an inflatable globe, and sound advice from Alan Whicker, he set off to circumnavigate the world using only forms of transport available to the fictional Phileas Fogg. His journey was phenomenal, his deadline eighty days. The rest, as they say, is history.

About the Author:

Michael Palin established his reputation with Monty Python's Flying Circus and Ripping Yarns. His work also includes several films with Monty Python as well as The Missionary, A Private Function, an award-winning performance as Ken in A Fish Called Wanda, and Fierce Creatures.

From AudioFile:

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.
