Summary

H. G. Wells is rightly regarded as one of the founding fathers of the science fiction genre. This compilation of nearly 20 hours' duration comprises four of his finest sci-fi works, and they really need little introduction.
They are, in order: The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The First Men in the Moon and The Island of Doctor Moreau. They are complete and unabridged and narrated by Greg Wagland.

Critic reviews

From a review of The First Men in the Moon, one of the four novels of this omnibus edition: "This novel may be one of the lesser works by the socially conscious Wells, but that doesn't take away from the impact of this audio production. Much of the credit for that goes to the full-bodied British voice of narrator Greg Wagland... This audiobook illustrates how even an old novel can be given new life on audio." ( AudioFile, 2015)

Recommended

Fantastic narration, well worth a listen. Thoroughly enjoyable, especially for those who like material from the same period, like Derek Jacobs's Sherlock Holmes for example.

Fascinating perspective on the future

Great books, all four of them fascinating and mind-stretching. Wells clearly put a lot of thought into what may happen in the future given the trajectory of the human condition.
