The climax of a story is the point in the story where tensions are highest. It represents a turning point in the story, and it is often the moment when the main conflict is at its peak. Fogg has quite a few conflicts in this story, but one conflict that runs throughout is the chase that is happening between him and Fix. Fix seems to just miss Fogg over and over again, and everything seems to be working out for Fogg. He even manages to get back to England; however, it is then that he is finally arrested. By this point, readers think that Fogg is actually going to make good upon his bet. We are excited to see him win this ridiculous wager, and then Fogg is arrested. All hope seems to be lost. The winning moment that we thought we were going to read about won't happen, and the conflict is over. Fix has won. From here, the story moves into the falling action and conclusion. Fogg is found to be innocent, he is set free, he becomes engaged, he discovers he has an extra day, and he wins the bet.
