    Great social commentary done as only H.G. Wells can write it. I have a paperback of this and was sure I had read it many decades ago but I expect I didn't finish it as most of this was unfamiliar. In any event, this is a story not to be missed.

    Very far fetched and not as refined as Well's other works but worth the read for it's satire.
