Well I'm in for this one!

The Door in the Wall, considered by both readers and critics, to be Wells's finest tale, examines an issue to which Wells returned repeatedly in his writing: the contrast between aesthetics and science and the difficulty of choosing between them.

I have read this at least three times. It's good!

Karin | 775 comments I am ordering this from the library and if I can get through it, am in. I am not a huge fan of Wells, but I can't get Measuring a Meridian from the library and have no book budget at the moment.
