The book/movie that impressed me most in college is Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne. Jules Verne(1828-1905)was born in Nantes, France. He had an innate love for the sea and for travel and adventure when he was a child. Later, he devoted himself to literature and wrote several scientific romances, which gained him the name——Father of Modern Science Fiction.
This is a book/movie of science fiction which tells us an exciting story about an English gentleman, Mr. Phileas Fog, who makes a bet with his club-mates and manages to travel around the world in eighty days. It gives us a vivid description of the many difficulties and incidents which happen on his journey.
From this story, we can see the author’s deep love for the sea, travel and adventure, which played an important role in his life. We are also astonished and convinced by his fertile imagination and scientific and geographical knowledge.
