After reading the novel, "Around the World in 80 Days", I could say that (Phileas) Fogg is the hero of the story. Though in some parts, it seemed like it was Passepartout or Aouda was a hero. So who is the real hero? Is Aouda the hero? Aouda did help in the story but, I do not belive that she could be the hero. The time I think that she really had helped is when she offered to be married.

Fogg is the main character, and main characters are usually the heros but, I belive that Fogg is not a real hero. I think that because when ever a problem came across the party, Fogg usually just sloved it using money. So Fogg did not actually try to fight any of the problems.
