Wells fasziniert mit seiner unglaublichen Vorstellungskraft. Dieses Buch ist 1899 erschienen und Wells schreibt über die Zukunft als lebe er bereits im 21. Jahrhundert. Sience-Fiction-Autoren dieser Welt verneigt euch! Unerreicht!!!

Not vintage Wells, but certainly entertaining. Interesting take on life 100 years from now (200+ from when this written).
