Around the World in 80 Days - The Character I Dislike the Most

Around the World in 80 Days

The character I Dislike the Most

            I have selected the novel entitled ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ written by Jules Verne in order to answer the question. The novel tells about a gentleman named Phileas Fogg who goes around the world in 80 days with his butler, Jean Passepartout as they embark on journey which is full of adventures and surprises.

             The character I dislike the most in the novel is Detective Fix. Detective Fix is one of the many detectives who are on the trail of the infamous robber of the Bank of England. I dislike him the most because he is a judgemental, hypocritical and suspicious person. First and foremost, Detective Fix is a judgemental person. Since the portrait of the bank robber happens to resemble Fogg’s persona, Detective Fix passes a judgement that Phileas Fogg is gulty for the robbery without further investigation. In addition to this, Detective Fix is a hypocritical person. Detective Fix befriends Passepartout with the sole aim of keeping a tab on Fogg.  Last but not least, Detective Fix is a suspicious person. He suspects that Phileas is the robber without any concrete proof and he asks Stephenson not to stamp Phileas Fogg’s passport until he gets a warrant to arrest him.     

            In conclusion, the character I dislike the most is Detective Fix because he is a judgemental, hypocritical and suspicious person. His negative traits make readers detest him the most.
