A Fun Collection

(4 Sterne)

H.G. Wells is always fun and intriguing. This collection, though not as strong as his more famous works, is no different really. I particularly liked "The Star," "Lord of the Dynamos," and "The Country of the Blind." I don't know what the reader of "The Cone" was doing. I couldn't understand so much of the story that I had to look it up online to figure it out.
