This audiobook really draws you in

I was very impressed with B J Harrison's narration. He is very good when it comes to creation the voices of the "creatures" . It raises a great many ethical and theological issues. HG Wells was a genius. Such sublime writing. Very exciting. At times it was also quite scary. Dystopia at its best!

Excellent

A really good example of the author's work. Utterly compelling and believable. I love this story.
