    HG wells is one of the greatest authors of 'recent' times. His clever works, maintain relevance, and provoke thought even in modern times. HG wells is one of the greatest authors of 'recent' times. His clever works, maintain relevance, and provoke thought even in modern times.

    If your looking for adventure you will be dissapointed, aside from the Time Machine and War of the worlds the stories from H G Wells are more dedicated to love and relationships. Love is a complex subject matter as witnessed by our author, untill our final story the compexity of relationships is laid bare with complete understanding. I have read this works in conjunction with the works of Jules Verne which I also give 5 stars. To sum up for the reader: One is the master of understanding love and If your looking for adventure you will be dissapointed, aside from the Time Machine and War of the worlds the stories from H G Wells are more dedicated to love and relationships.

I have read this works in conjunction with the works of Jules Verne which I also give 5 stars. To sum up for the reader: One is the master of understanding love and romance in the narrative the other is the master of adventure and imagination. Both books are amazing value, containing endless hours of enjoyment.

    I am a huge fan of H.G Wells as a kid they were some of my favorite stories still is true today. This book is fun as it has all of the famous stories as well as some not so famous. This is one book I leave as currently reading as it is always loaded and I can escape to another world when I need a good book to relax with.
