The Wonderful Visit

(5 stars)

My favorite HG Wells book. This book has moved me emotional, as it deals with prejudice, judging and misunderstanding. Society will always judge and place people with labels. The story is still is relevant today.

Great reader

(3 stars)

Reader is expressive and easy to follow. Story is unusual and is about an angel who comes to earth and prejudices of society and is somewhat philosophical at some points and thought provoking. However the thought of an angel seems a bit unreal and also the ending was very very sudden.
