Around the World in Eighty Days Chapter 2

By Jules Verne

Chapter 2

In which Passepartout is convinced that he has at last found his ideal

  • Passepartout has taken up residence with Phileas Fogg and he's sort of both impressed and weirded-out by what he sees.
  • Passepartout describes Phileas Fogg to us as about forty, handsome, tall, and well-built (hubba-hubba). He seems to like to act rather than talk, and he keeps an immaculate appearance as well as a fancy wardrobe. Passepartout compares Fogg to one of the wax figures at Madame Tussaud's. He's calm and practical, and Passepartout thinks his master is British to the core.
  • Passepartout is a servant, but he's a gentleman at heart, and he thinks that he can respect Fogg even if his master has some really odd tendencies.
  • Passepartout learns everything runs on a tight schedule in the Fogg house and he sort of likes the neatness and routine. He thinks he and Fogg will get along pretty well.
