  1. 1. SUMMARY The ship reached Bombay two days earlier than it had been expected. Then, Mr. Fogg and Paspartout had to take the train for Calcuta. Mr. Fix, a detective who thought that MR. Fogg was a robber, was treating to have a warrant from London to catch him. Paspartout went to do sightseeing in the city and decided to enter in a temple. But he didn’t know that foreigners are not allowed to go inside Indian temples and that are not allowed to enter with shoes on. Three priests went to him, pulled off his shoes and hit him. But he was able to escape and to arrive to the station at time. Mr. Fix listened Paspartout tell the adventure to his master and thought that it was a good idea to tell this to the Indian police to catch them without the London’s warrant. Mr. Fogg and Paspartout took their places in the railway carriage. Sir. Francis Cromarty, an officer of the Indian Army, was travelling in the same carriage. The train left Bombay to go to Calcuta. But, in the middle of the way, the train stopped in Kholby because there weren’t any more railway line between here to Allahabad. They didn’t know anything about that. The rest of passengers had already hired carriages and horses knowing it. They were only able to find an Indian who wanted to sell his elephant for too much money. Then Mr. Fogg found a guide who wanted to take them to Allahabad for a good reward in return. Mr. Fogg, Paspartout, Sir. Francis Cromarty and the guide took their places on the elephant and left Kholby. They travelled all day and, in the evening, they had already got halfway to Allahabad. The next day, when they were in the middle of a thick forest, they suddenly heard strange noises. They hid and waited showing what was happening… A crowd of priests came into view walking, dancing, shouting and singing! Some was bringing a figure of Goddess Kali, the Goddess of Love and Death. And behind them, others were pulling along a tired frightened woman and a dead boy! JULES VERNE’S BIOGRAPHY Jules Gabriel Verne was born in Nantes, in 8th February 1828. He was a French writer of adventure novels. He is considerate one of the pioneers in science fiction. He foretold some advances in technology in the 20th century in his stories. He talked about television, helicopters, submarines and spaceships. He is one of the most writers who have been translated. Some of his works have been adapted for films. He was the oldest of Pierre Verne’s five children. His family was linked with judges. His father wanted that he would become a lawyer but he enjoyed writing novels. He was obsessed with the science a lot. He collected articles about science and was in the library all time. His father got angry with him at about not work as the job he wanted and gave up giving money. He didn’t have any money to eat and began to have a lot of health problems. Although he was ill and poor, he wrote several novels. In 1850 wrote the comedy Broken straws which was his first work with some success.
  2. 2. In 1856 met Honorie Devaine Morel, his future wife. She was Morel’s widowed and had two children. In 1857 they got married but four years later he abandoned her being pregnant. His only son was Michel Verne. In 1859 he began to travel and wrote more and more. In 1863 he published the first of his Sixty extraordinary journeys, which was five weeks in a balloon. Then, he wrote A journey to the center of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), Twenty thousand leagues Under the Sea (1870), Round the World in eighty days (1873)… In 1887 Jules began to write dark novels. In 1988 he got involved in politics and was chosen by being Amien’s councilor. He was in that job for fifteen years. He was ill for diabetes and died in 24th March 1905. OPINIONS CASE 1: SHOP ASSISTANT IN A BOOKSHOP Round the World in eighty days is one of the youngest novels which have been sold in the World. It has been adapted for films and cartoons and, until now, young people enjoy it a lot. He was an advanced writer for his time and, nowadays, we usually sell his novels in our shop. I have to admit that I’m a Jules Verne’s novels-loving. CASE 2: HONORIE DEVIANE MOREL (VERNE’S WIFE) Jules is so selfish! He is all time travelling, writing or reading in a library! He is never in house! Poor Michel! He is going to grown without father… Mmmm… if I have to say what think his novel Round the World in eighty days, I will say that I hate it. I’m sure that the lady, who Mr. Fogg and Paspartout rescue, is clearly a character based on one Jules’s lower. CASE 3: A YOUNG GOTH READER When I was a child I remember that I enjoyed reading the Jules’s Extraordinary journeys. I liked adventure novels. But now, I prefer read his dark novels. On day, the Verne’s nephew, who seemed to be normal, suddenly shot his uncle in a leg. Since that moment and after some family deaths, Jules Verne became darker. And I’m grateful to him for writing those works! Very good-amazing improvement from previous work.Well done! CORRECTIONS SUMMARY The ship reached Bombay two days earlier than it had been expected.
