The Red Room is luckily easy to find a copy of in print and is one of the best stories I've ever read. Besides being a classic, it's also an eerie telling of the unexplained, the things that hide unseen in even the most mundane of places.

Great set of stories! The descriptive writing is superb even when he's writing about something that doesn't exist you can easily imagine it does. Some of these stories were a little creepy for my liking and a few didn't hold my interest quite as much but the ones I loved made up for all those. Very enjoyable book.

Good stories, and well written. Some funny, some weird, some about hardly anything at all. All obviously old, though - the scary ones, for example, simply aren't scary today. They're all very short, mostly under 10 pages.

Wells'i iyi ki bu romanıyla bitirmiyorum. Bu kadar fanı olduğum birinin böyle uykusuzluk çektiğiniz anlarda adeta ilaç olabilecek bir kitap yazması... Gerçekten bilimkurgu altyapılı romanlarına ne kadar tapıyorsam bundan da o kadar hoşlanmadım diyebilirim. Neyseki Ayda ilk İnsanlar adlı romanı ile bitireceğim H.G. Wells'i ve umarım bundan daha iyi olacak; hep iyi olarak hatırlıyacağım onu.

like most Wells works this inspired and ignited my imagination and his descriptive prose was wonderful.
