I absolutely love this game. Played through a couple of times. Good replay value if you take a different route.

Not sure I agree with Jon about how gamebooks can't connect us to literary classics. I get his point, but I honestly think they can be an amazing vehicle to reconnect us with gems that we may never read or pick up on our own.

I agree coyote_hunter. To be honest, I have never read Jules Verne's 'Around The World In 80 Days'. However playing this game has made me want to grab the book and have a read now.
That can only be a good thing if a game can have that kind of an influence
