This was one of the first Little Black Classics that I read, way back in 2015!
Over the summer I’ve collected all the Little Black Classics that were published by Penguin to celebrate their 80th birthday! Every now and then I’m reading one of them, and my reviews are mostly some thoughts about each of the books.
I only knew H.G. Wells from his science fiction stories, and then only what I’ve heard about them. At this point I haven’t read any of them. I was a little bit surprised when I was reading this booklet and the two stories featured are no science fiction, the latter which is also the title story doesn’t even have any mystery element to it. This said, I didn’t think they were bad stories, just not what I had expected from it.
Will I try something else from this author? I’m certainly planning to, but I think I will go for some of the more famous stories next.
