Around the World in 80 Days - Michael Palin

I listened to this as an audiobook and liked it well enough except for the recurring musical score, which I found most annoying. Other than that, though, it was a fun and interesting travelogue of the author's successful 1988 circumnavigation of the world using the same route and modes of transportation that Phileas Fogg used in Jules Verne's 1873 adventure classic of the same name.

As much as I like audiobook travelogues, this particular story would be better as a print book or DVD.
