Like you, I was surprised when, a few years back, I discovered Wells who, as you imply, is best known for his science fiction writing, was insanely prolific and wrote on many topics beyond science fiction.As is your way, another very detailed and informative book review, written in a style that grabs the readers attention and hold onto it to the very end. I have but a single question for which my mind literally itches for an answer. In completing Ann Veronica, it appears that HG Wells has extended his writing pen way beyond the limits of his vocational wheelhouse. Is my fevered mind deceiving me or would you agree with my perception(s)? Thank you again for a great review.
While I tend not to agree with his philosophy, I really enjoy his writing.
Ann Veronica was my third non-Sci-Fi Wells book.
These are the other two not-Sci-Fi books of his that I've read: #793 and #652
