Excellent collection of short stories

(5 Sterne)

Really enjoyed the selection. Stories I've not heard before. Wells' talent was amazing. His use of language to create an image or atmosphere is unsurpassed. All the readers did a great job. For those who are obsessed with political correctness and looking to be offended, one story uses common words of the time
