Adult Fiction WELLS

From Library Journal:

One of the great unread popular classics is brought back to life by reader Edward Hardwicke, who provides a fully dramatized rendition complete with rural British accents that re-create a now-vanished society. Note that this Faustian parable was first published just 100 years ago. It certainly helps that Wells keeps the ersatz science to a minimum and focuses on action. Therefore, the possibility that a chemist (no computers here) can make himself vanish is kept credible. At first seemingly written for humor, the tale gradually slides into horror. This is not a work for children, but YAs and adults will enjoy it.Preston Hoffman, Shelby, N.C.(c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
