A world set free
Not too bad
By Maxwell Hemsworth
i liked the book but despised section 6
An interesting read
This story was written before WW1. It describes what the world might have become had atomic power been harnessed at that time and how society might have been transformed with unlimited energy available. It is interesting to look at this from the current time (late 2013) and compare the story to how things have actually turned out.
Superb but a challenge
It's a great piece of Utopian geo-political commentary, dressed up with a little narrative. It's occasionally a bit challenging to get through because Wells does like his lecture. Despite that, I found myself moved by the picture he draws. Burned through it in about thirty hours.
