    I had no idea it would be this good.

    H.G. Wells was a true visionary. To think he forsaw and wrote about inventions that are now apart of our modern life is amazing. Great book even in our time.
    4 stars only because the writing style made it so it took forever to read.

    Example: Highly Recommended - you must check it out!!

    And must I say it's free. Only if Barnes and Noble could push out more free books like this one out and more people will start looking to B&N. And one more thing, I wish B&N Stop pushing all those sex free books whenever I search for free nook books or 0.00.

    Great file copy

    The novel itself is a great representation of social commentary, but the fact that the file is so easy to read is what is important to me. Worth it
