Marie Corelli’s novel from 1896, The Mighty Atom, is an attempt by Corelli to show the evils of Atheism. Other parts of the book read very much like Corelli’s previous works as the characters are very two-dimensional, and other than the slight hint at change in Professor Cadman-Gore there is no character growth which has always been a problem with Corelli’s writing. The worst part of the story though is Corelli’s attempts at conveying what atheists actually believe.

This book is a direct affront to the "High Decadence of the Yellow Nineties" and their moral deconstructions. Marie, although decadent and florid in much of her style and philosophy of writing, is at the same time rather morally strict in her own views of ethics and rules of conduct - especially in regards to spirituality. A rather entertaining read if you have read her novels
