    I found it hard to follow and very boring.

  • Gaynor Celotti

    A very thought provoking book of a better future. What a mind has H G Wells has.

  • Ian Martin

    Absolutely brilliant. Wells captures modes of thinking with striking clarity. The story is great to read. Then the new world is quit compelling. He might have been a touch over the top, but it's worth reading.
