The adventures of an English man around the world. Verne is considered one of the originators of the science fiction novel because he wrote about subjects such as submarine expeditions or a trip to the moon at a time when there was no technology to do it. But the most unbelievable thing for his time was the possibility of making a trip around the world in little less than three months specially when the traveler has to cross wild places chased by the police. The adventures of Phileas Fogg, the English gentleman that achieved this prowess turned immediately into Julio Verne's most popular work. Even today, when it is possible to travel around the world in a few hours, this book is still popular and this fact makes it an honoring to Verne's narrative qualities, which have also been taken to the movies. Fabio Camero, the distinguished actor lives, through Fogg's adventures, a reading that gathers the humor of the work.
