“[Wells] contrives to give over humanity into the clutches of the Impossible and yet manages to keep it down (or up) to its humanity, to its flesh, blood, sorrow, folly.” — Joseph Conrad

Entertaining with a message

Very decent, entertaining occasionally quite gripping short novel. Certain predicaments seem to be far fetched but fact that this book is over 120 years old, adds another very enthralling dimension. Good ending, carrying beautiful message. Derek Jacobi absolutely nailed it and became my favourite voice on Audible.
