o recall some of the mental habits of those departed days. A great book from a great writer. Wells more than any other author invented science fiction. I first read this book in high school and then several times as an adult. I recommend it to all. Do not let the Tom Cruse film ruin your appreciation of this masterwork. There is no comparison of the genuine article and the film. I must again express my appreciation to ManyBooks for bringing these classics to us at no cost. Upvote (0). Downvote (0).
