Overview

H.G. Wells novel is include here in electronic form with a biography about the life and times of Wells'.

The story is about vapors of a comet are used as a device which brings about a profound and lasting transformation in the attitudes and perspectives of humankind.

In the book, the world is often described as absolutely corrupt, spoiled and horrible to the point of no solution with politicians doing nothing for the people living in squalid conditions of poverty, hardship, mismanagement and abuse, which is all then immediately changed by the comet's green gasses, which "changed the air somehow". Everyone all of a sudden began seeing the world honestly, rationally, and with the evaluation of beauty far more than before.

Hate, distrust, and angst between all people was eliminated during the Great Change, subsequently rendering many things useless and devoid of practicality; ownership titles, land and sea borders, many industries, armies, navies and many weapons. After the Great Change, the book describes how large buildings began to be used as collective dining halls, and large mansions used as an old person's home, and a makeshift engineer's school made for people to come and learn so that demolition of the grotesque industries and reconstruction of new residencies could begin.

cheap classics often = mess you have to sift through. i did make myself guess or wade through some of the mess because i liked the story so much. so i guess that says something for the work itself, this is just not the best version to try and read.

Great story but some typos. The book was readable and in better condition than the other free download of this same title.

A wonderful story. I love his writing. My version wasn't full of typos either. Complains must be for another version. Philtre Libre version is nice.

Do not buy any copy of this book from the nook store! They are all filled with OCR errors. Go online and get a copy from the project Gutenburg website for free. They have it in epub format. I hop this helps, because this book is a greatly underappreciated classic. :-)

Wells imagines for us a utopian world in which greed, jealousy, violence, and all the rest of humanity's vices have been eradicated. A clarion call to buck the current system of grasping pettiness and start anew; a sort of 'Atlas Shrugged' for socialists (only based on selflessness rather than selfishness, and not nearly so long or tiresome, thank God!) Some scanning errors made it hard to read at times, but not impossible, and worth the effort.
