    Novels The Time Machine - 3 stars - This is more about the social classes than about time travel. The Wonderful Visit - 1 star - I just couldn't finish. There is an angel(? higher dimensional being) that comes (falls) to Earth and is trying to understand humanity or something like that. The Island of Doctor Moreau - 2 stars - I can't tell if this is about the dangers of taking science to the extreme or if it is about how everything has a balance and when they are moved out of that balance they will Novels The Time Machine - 3 stars - This is more about the social classes than about time travel. The Wonderful Visit - 1 star - I just couldn't finish. There is an angel(? higher dimensional being) that comes (falls) to Earth and is trying to understand humanity or something like that. The Island of Doctor Moreau - 2 stars - I can't tell if this is about the dangers of taking science to the extreme or if it is about how everything has a balance and when they are moved out of that balance they will over time seek to regain that balance. The Wheels of Chance - 1 star - I couldn't get into to this. It's about a man, his new bike, and learning to ride it. There is also potentially some romance, but I didn't get far enough to find out if it goes anywhere. The Invisible Man - 3 stars - Man turns himself invisible and then finds being invisible has fewer uses than he thought it would. One of those uses is crime and he takes to it like a duck to water. The War of the Worlds - 4 stars - Interesting look at what an alien invasion would look like. I would just like to point out that when Europeans came to the Americas they brought the disease that killed off the natives and not the other way around. Love and Mr Lewisham - ? stars - The First Men in the Moon - ? stars - The Sea Lady - ? stars - The Food of the Gods and How it Came to Earth - ? stars - Kipps - ? stars - A Modern Utopia - ? stars - In the Days of the Comet - ? stars - The War in the Air - ? stars - Tono-Bungay - ? stars - Ann Veronica - ? stars - The History of Mr Polly - ? stars - The Sleeper Awakes - ? stars - The New Machiavelli - ? stars - Marriage - ? stars - The Passionate Friends - ? stars - The Wife of Sir Isaac Harmon - ? stars - The World Set Free - ? stars - The Research Magnificent - ? stars - Mr Britling Sees It Through - ? stars - The Soul of the Bishop - ? stars - The Secret Places of the Heart - ? stars - Non-Fiction Certain Personal Matters - 3 stars - These seem to be news paper articles that he wrote mostly about everyday events or things he has opinions about. Anticipations of the Reactions of Mechanical and Scientific Progress upon Human Life and Thought - 2 stars - H G Wells tries to picture what the world will look like in the year 2000 based on the trends of his time (1901) and while he got some things right (Europe becoming more unified) he got a lot of things wrong (moving walkways instead of subways). Mankind in the Making - 2 stars - A description of how to create a New Republic and what that would mean for and how it would elevate mankind. I personally have some serious issues with H G Wells' ideas, namely on eugenics. He is for it but admits that it is impossible simply because no one can really define who is "fit" and who isn't. Some of his other ideas are good, such as making sure housing meets a certain standard of cleanliness, but most of his ideas would be incredibly expensive to implement. New Worlds for Old - 3 stars - A look at what Socialism is and how it could be implemented. As well as what it would be like to live in a "true" socialist society. A lot of time is spent differentiating "modern" or "true" socialism from other types of socialism. First and Last Things - 2 stars - An essay on H G Wells' thoughts on belief, religion, and life. It seems contradictory to what he preaches in New Worlds for Old. In New Worlds for Old Wells is all about the collective will and how everyone needs to live by the rules of the greater society but this is all about individuality and how everyone can choose their own standard to live by. Maybe I just didn't understand it all that well. Floor Games - 2 stars - A description of the games and their materials, mostly wooden blocks, boards, and toy soldiers, he played with his boys. It describes some pictures but this edition does not have them. Little Wars - 3 stars - A in depth look at one particular Floor Game which was just war games with the toy soldiers and a lot more rules. This includes the pictures it describes. An Englishman Looks at the World - 2 stars - Thoughts on English creativity, political system, economic structure, literary habits, education, and so many other things. What is Coming? - 3 stars - Some interesting thoughts on what would happen after WWI, most of it his hopes on what would happen and how to accomplish those hopes. Some other thoughts on how the war is changing society or will change society. God the Invisible King - 2 stars - Wells' thoughts on God and religion. He has some very interesting points on certain Christian beliefs but I feel like the whole point of this was to show how God and religion could be integrated into the Socialist system he is advocates. War and the Future (aka Italy, France, and Britain at War) - 3 stars - Wells visited the front in Italy and France and the first part is about his feelings and observations. He talks about how technology has changed war and how it will evolve. The last part is some of his predictions on what the world will look like after the war, depending on how it ends. This was written in 1916 I believe. In the Fourth Year - 3 stars - Wells' thoughts on what the League of Nations will have to look like for it to succeed. The powers it will have to have and who will be the main players. he also has a couple of chapters promoting his thoughts on Proportional Representation, a method of election that is simple but should, according to Wells, get rid of political parties. The Salvaging of Civilization - 3 stars - World wide education is Wells' panacea for all the world's problems. He also advocates for the creation of a "Bible" that will spread the idea of world citizenship like the Bible spread Christianity. A Short History of the World - 3 stars - Very Eurocentric. Nothing is said of Sub-Saharan Africa and little is said of the Americas or India before Europeans arrived. Short Stories Select Conversations with an Uncle (Now Extinct) and Two Other Reminscences - 2 stars - Mostly the ramblings of an old man about how he thinks the world should be. The Stolen Bacillus and Other Incidents - 2 stars - Some of these seem like the beginning of stories H G Wells wanted to write but didn't finish while others seemed like he was given a topic or writing prompt. All very distinct and none of them are related to each other. Tales of Space and Time - 2 stars - The Crystal Egg could be a precursor to The War of the Worlds the others are stories of what life was like or could be like if "such and such" happened. Twelve Stories and a Dream - 3 stars - These are quick to read and fairly interesting. Most are told as if they were related to the author by the person to whom the events happened. Other Short Stories - 3 stars - Quick to read and mostly about unexplained or mysterious phenomena. Some slice of life type stories as well. The last two The Beautiful Suit and A Moonlight Fable are the same story though.

Instead, I'll relate Things About The Book that made an impression on me (creep-factor not withstanding). A bit of historical background: The Island of Doctor Moreau is an 1896 science fiction novel written by H. G. Wells, who called the novel "an exercise in youthful blasphemy". The text of the novel is the narration of Edward Prendick, a shipwrecked man rescued by a passing boat who is left on the island home of Doctor Moreau, who creates human-like beings from animals via vivisection. The novel deals with a number of philosophical themes, including pain and cruelty, moral responsibility, human identity, and human interference with nature. At the time of novel's publication in 1896, there was growing discussion in Europe regarding degeneration and animal vivisection. Two years later several interest groups were formed to address the issue such as the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection. (Wikipedia) The narrator's impression of Moreau's Beast People: "I had here before me the whole balance of human life in miniature, the whole interplay of instinct, reason, and fate in its simplest form." Evidence of existentialism, before it was called existentialism (which also explains Wells' above comment about blasphemy; it struck me that he's questioning if God had any good or rational intent in the creation of man): "Poor Brutes! I began to see the viler aspect of Moreau's cruelty. I had not thought before of the pain and trouble that came to these poor victims after they had passed from Moreau's hands. I had shivered only at the days of actual torment [surgery] in the enclosure. But now that seemed to me the lesser part. Before, they had been beasts, their instincts fitly adapted to their surroundings, and happy as living things may be. Now they stumbled in the shackles of humanity, lived in fear that never died, fettered by a law they could not understand; their mock-human existence, begun in agony, was one long internal struggle, one long dread of Moreau - and for what? It was the wantoness of it that stirred me... But he was so irresponsible, so utterly careless! His curiosity, his mad, aimless investigations, drove him on; and the Things were thrown out to live a year or so, to struggle and blunder and suffer, and at last to die painfully." Existentialism - a chiefly 20th-century philosophical movement embracing diverse doctrines but centering on analysis of individual existence in an unfathomable universe and the plight of the individual who must assume ultimate responsibility for acts of free will without any certain knowledge of what is right or wrong or good or bad. First use: 1941 (Merriam-Webster) 1941??? H. G. was certainly a trend-setter in his time. In the end, Wells returns to faith: "There is - though I do not know how there is or why there is - a sense of infinite peace and protection in the glittering hosts of heaven [stars]. There must be, I think, in the vast and eternal laws of matter, and not in the daily cares and sins and troubles of men, that whatever is more than animal within us must find its solace and its hope."

    Amazing collection that all readers should keep next to their bed or in their car to pass time in the most exciting and compelling way. Mr. Wells is an author all should read and enjoy and also remember when these amazing stories were written, so fascinating.

    The finished is for "The Island of Dr. Moreau" only. I have read others in this collection as well, but not the whole book as yet.
