I'm not really sure what to say about this story. To me it was 'OK', hence the 2 star rating. I haven't read any other HG Wells stories, so I can't compare it to his other works, but now I'm in no hurry to read them either.

The idea of vivisection is somewhat disturbing, which is one theme that is central to this book. It was interesting to read how Wells feels this affects not only the animal going through it, but the finished product, and those around it. I do think it would be an interesting book to have a discussion about, as its views on Religion, Technology, and Science are good talking points.
