Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This trio are from Wells's utopian writings, which generally chronicle a future society of potential greatness that has failed its mission and gone to seed. Not as posh as the "Deluxe Classics Editions," these nonetheless feature many nice extras, including scholarly introductions. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

My only complaint is that the other reviewer can't be complained on. Perhaps if Rosie could spell then she wouldn't have a difficult time reading? To those who are Wells fans, this is going to be one you will like.

Unfortunately, I believe this book was not only scanned, the scanned images were translated into text by a computer. Any text that was illegible was then filled in by an educated guess by the machine. This led to bad translations and illegible print.

I can deal with imperfections but something is messed up with this copy. Maybe it was OK before but it is unreadable now.

I think there's something wrong with this ebook. It doesn't look right.... like trying to read a Mac file on a PC.

So many typoes and misplaced sentances as to be impossible to read. For shame puting something like this out like this! Did anyone even look at this prior to publishing? Would give negative stars if i could. A disgrace to the work of wells. Once more, for shame.
