classic science fiction novel and a prophetic warning about technology.

There are several reasons why this book continues to fascinate readers more than a hundred years after it was first published. On one level it is a propulsive action story that catches the reader up in its high-pace and occasional explosive scenes. One another level, it raises questions on the nature of evil and whether social expectation produces good behavior. Whatever you are looking to get out of a novel, there is a good chance you will find it here.

While this is not Wells' best novel it still is a good return for your money. Chilling, extremely atmospheric and considering that it is a short read this novel is perfect for a evening at home with your back to a open window, just to get the chills running through you.

Brilliantly chilling thriller by H.G. Wells. This book is the perfect example of how sometimes the things we find most terrifying are the ones we can't even see. A definite must read for sci-fi and horror fans alike.
