Nellie Bly (pen name for Elizabeth Jane Cochrane) was an American journalist who lived around 1864- 1922. In this volume she chronicles her journey around the world where she broke the fictitious record of Jules Verne's Phileas Fogg, making the trip in 72 days. She even takes time out during her tra

jälle saab tõestust, et hea reisikirja kirjutab eelkõige ikkagi hea reisija - selline, kes ei pirtsuta ja suudab igas olukorras huumorit leida ja sealjuures ka iseenda üle naerda. kahju ei tee, et tegu on elukutselise kirjutajaga (ajakirjanik).

lugesin seda paralleelselt ühe teise sarnase looga, kus

72 Days Around the World
Review of the Loomingu Raamatukogu Estonian language paperback (2021) translated from the original English language edition (1890)
The young journalist Nellie Bly (1864–1922) excelled in America in the 1880s with many innovative works: she did not want to limit herself to the

Täiesti minu maitsele mimm, kes paljusid takistusi ja tabusid murdes otsustas nii umbes-täpselt kahekümneviiesena ajakirjandusliku eksperimendi korras pallile tiiru peale teha. Aasta oli siis 1889 ja ütleme nii, et see oli aeg, mis naiste (eriti vallaliste!) sedalaadi avantüüre just üleliia ei soosi

Põnev jutustus 1889-1890. aastatel reisimisest, aga ei tasu unustada, et väga privilegeeritud vaatenurgast. Seetõttu ajasid osad kirjeldused nina kirtsutama. Enamuse saab aega silmas pidades andeks.
Ja see reis poleks rekord- ja ülesandeks püstitatud ajaga toimuda saanud, kui lõpuotsas poleks Bly ja

Nelly Bly's epic account of her trip around the world, undertaken as a publicity stunt in 1889-1890, has an unmistakable aura of Gilded Age enthusiasm about it, but it's also the work of a remarkable woman. Bly was a mold-breaker in every sense of the word -- she went places and did things that wome

Nellie avait l'air d'être une sacrée tête à claques mais son périple était impressionnant !
Perso, je crois que j'aurais pas tenu trois jours !

This account of trailblazing woman journalist Nellie Bly's 1889 attempt to beat fictional Phileas Fogg's record, of travelling Around the World in Eighty Days in Jules Verne's novel, was a fun book to listen to on my daily walks the past week or so, although there's more to it than that, and Mary Re

3.5 ⭐️ Encantada de haber conocido a esta intrépida y valiente periodista pionera que fue Nellie Bly, admirable por su arrojo, confianza en si misma y sobre todo por negarse a aceptar que el papel de una mujer tuviera que limitarse al ámbito doméstico y familiar, que denunció las condiciones de trab

I enjoyed this book for the most part. It is a good story and step back to a different era, if you can get past her somewhat bigoted, arrogant remarks about some of the cultures she happened upon. She did redeem herself a bit as a not too ugly American with her descriptions of the Japanese culture.
