I raised my hands muttering "Yes!"

This was my second listening by H.G. Wells after The Time machine and boy. . . this one didn't let me down either.

The narration of this book was different in the way it was very emotional, dramatic and they even used music to add to the experience. For me, it just hit every right spot. I actually cheered and raised my hands muttering "Yes!" at one part of the book (you'll know when it happens), much to the surprise of my fellow co-workers (the poor things only listen to the radio or music. . . such a waste of time).

But anyways, I found both the story and the narration to be just the right thing for me. This book was six hours of great emotions as I at times cheered or grieved the fate of man but also the story gave me many things to ponder afterwards about humanity and its place in the world.

If I would usually wear a hat (like a good english tophat), I would now take it off in token of appreciations for the master of fiction. . . H.G. Wells.

Truly a good listening.
