Narrator Bill Homewood's voice gives listeners a sense of the elegance of the Reform Club, where Phileas Fogg spends his days. There's a hint of Jules Verne's playfulness creeping in as Fogg is seen through the eyes of his servant, Passepartout. When Fogg makes a fateful wager, the monotony of his life disappears as he embarks on his journey around the world. Homewood's voice takes on a tone of majesty reflecting Verne's awe at the wonders of then-modern transportation. Familiar listeners know that Fogg's famously precise travel plans will run into obstacles. Happily, the English gentleman shows calm resilience, even as he opens his heart while crossing the globe.
