Around the World in Eighty Days is fantastic, I'm always re-reading it! My next aim is to read the original French version, which of course my local library doesn't seem to have... The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was also a very interesting read, and it seems that most of its adaptations take many liberties with what the Jekyll/Hyde dilemma actually is!
