Absolutely essential reading for any fan of classic literature.
H.G. Wells' style of writing had me ensnared by its rich detail and fascinating characters. To me, it had a similar feel to War of the Worlds, another of his great books. It not only gives us an important look into our possible future, but also a look back in time, to when this book was written, giving insight into the changes in our societal direction since this book was published. I highly recommend it!
This is a really fun and quick read!
