Herbert George Wells (21 September 1866 – 13 August 1946), usually referred to as H. G. Wells, was an English writer. He is now best remembered for his science fiction novels.

Herbert George Wells is an English author born in Kent, best known for his Science Fiction, Fantasy and Historical novels. To support a modest teaching salary Wells began to write short stories, articles and books. His best known works include The Time Machine (1895), The Invisible Man (1897) andThe War of the Worlds (1898). Heralded as a "father of Science Fiction", he was nominated for the Nobel Literature Prize four times, and the film rendition of The War of the Worlds went on to win the Hugo award for Best Dramatic Presentation.

Wells, a pioneer in the science fiction genre, produced awesomely imaginative novels whose technologies seem impossibly sophisticated for a writer living in an era before automobiles and the widespread application of electricity. In his work The Time Machine, Wells Time Traveller, a gentleman inventor living in England, traverses first thousands of years and then millions into the future, before bringing back the knowledge of the grave degeneration of the human race and the planet.

Wells looks at the role of energy and technology in man's development. Wells concludes that man must either retreat to an agricultural society or use science as the basis for a new cultural order.

Although his stilted language style irked me as I read, it is to be expected from a nineteenth century educated author. Wells’ predictions of Mankind’s progress in the 20th century and beyond are if nothing else accurate and therefore all the more amazing since The World Set Free was finished in 1912. No one before him expounded in such detail and so deftly. He wraps these forecasts in an interesting tale. The professional narration by Eric Jones is well worth the 1.99 and contributes to the British mood in the story.

Wells ventures the untenable prediction that the horrific force of atomic power alone brings Mankind to the irrefutable conclusion that he must reform his ways and think only of his place as a part of the greater striving of Man as a whole, a concept which correlates to his bent towards socialism. Untenable if only because men have employed and enjoyed the use of force to subdue one another, conquer one another and convince one another of the correctness of their beliefs and desires over all others.

What I found truly astounding is, although Wells attributes it wrongly to the Atomic bomb’s unimaginatively coercive destructive force, he predicts the freeing of Man’s attention from the day to day grind for survival into a virtual aesthetic utopia. Forecasting, what I have observed in my life, that men, women, individuals will have the chance in the future, circa our times, to express their innermost creative urges and focus on making things, aesthetic creations.

Finally as the story closes he very simply and boldy affirms his immortal inheritance, in the waning moments via his final major charater Marcus Karinen, the world educator who has come to prominence in the New World Order that has been set free. And that inheritance and its freeing is the key to Man’s continued progress towards being set free.
Good ideas but far too much exposition and not nearly enough story. Like The War In the Air, though, this could easily be seen as belonging to the Steampunk genre. Regardless of its faults, definitely worth a read, if only because this 1913 novel shows where the next generation of science fiction writers got their inspiration.
Being written more than a hundred years ago, the writing style and prose is significantly different than what I was used to. It took some time to adjust. Once there, though, it flowed well. It's written in a third person generally, but he jumps from subject to subject. It's amazing to read what he correctly predicted and how he thought other things would progress but didn't.

Once you've read this, I recommend jumping in to any other books from the period that you may be interested in. Your mind is already primed for the writing style, after all.
One has to appreciate this style of writing to be able to enjoy it. Although interesting, it might not Suite those who do not descriptive writing.
I did enjoy the history lesson, as well as the division of labour for mankind. It indeed would be a horrible world to try and live after a bomb was dropped. What is really important at that point in time? How could one possibly survive? An amazing scenario, an option that mankind would not want to think about. Students in upper high school or university should read this book and analyze it. Even on a religious level, this history should be introduced to students. Very informative.
An interesting book by Wells that I have never read before.
The lousiest HG Wells book ever. It's unrealistic and boring.
Best author ever!
