Description

H. G. Wells is rightly regarded as one of the founding fathers of the science fiction genre. This compilation of nearly 20 hours' duration comprises four of his finest sci-fi works, and they really need little introduction.

They are, in order: The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The First Men in the Moon and The Island of Doctor Moreau. They are complete and unabridged and narrated by Greg Wagland.

Critiques

From a review of The First Men in the Moon, one of the four novels of this omnibus edition: "This novel may be one of the lesser works by the socially conscious Wells, but that doesn't take away from the impact of this audio production. Much of the credit for that goes to the full-bodied British voice of narrator Greg Wagland... This audiobook illustrates how even an old novel can be given new life on audio." (AudioFile, 2015)

Fascinating perspective on the future

Great books, all four of them fascinating and mind-stretching. Wells clearly put a lot of thought into what may happen in the future given the trajectory of the human condition.

A great way to experience HG Wells

As someone who had never previously read Wells, this is a great selection of his SciFi titles to start with, and is extremely well performed by Greg Wagland. His narration especially helps update the sense of urgency during tense scenes, which is nice for someone reading these in 2018 (they just didn't write suspense the same way back in the day).

Although the scientific ideas underlying these books are comically out of date, these novels are really about the bigger ideas, and in that sense, they have aged extremely well. I was also was very impressed with Wells' sense of pacing given how long ago these were written (excluding War of the Worlds, which I found to be pretty dry). The 3 others were all fantastic pieces that I will definitely revisit as classics, and I would highly recommend this set to anyone looking to try or revisit HG Wells.
