Ended up

(4 stars)

I guess it has to have just been the plain acceptance of life as a product of Darwin's Evolution.

(3.5 stars)

The story is kinda victorian, so that's why I gave less stars. The reader is fabulous!

Quietly brilliant

(5 stars)

An ambitious young man faces contrasts between dreams and reality, mental compatibility and emotional attachment, idealism and practical integrity, and solitary vs. connected identity in an accessible and brutally honest coming of age story that is as relevant as if it was published this morning. The economic reality of struggling to transcend class barriers in chapter 25 is especially familiar. But that all sounds so dry, and this is also a story compellingly and engagingly told, not only of choices, but of the thoughts and emotions that lead to and result from them. Candor and detail lend an unanticipated depth and authenticity to a well-worn plot, making it over into something familiar yet new, as if suddenly realizing we had never read it while fully awake before. Wells is best known for his creation of abnormal realities, but he is, if anything, even more deft at probing the deepest recesses of the mundane, and revealing their universality.
