“This edition is set apart from all other editions by Alex MacDonald’s excellent introduction and annotations and an excellent selection of related texts.”
I enjoy reading stories of time travel. This book is one of the most mind stretching I have come across since it has the main character going forward in time and the author dreaming of a world 100 years in the future.
The writing is from the 1800 s and so has to be read and thought about. It is a true story of what the world was like in the late 1800 s from the point of view of someone living then. He has a vision of utopia in the year 2000 that we can hold and compare to where we actually developed. I am not sure that I would like living in his world. But then again, I am not happy with all I see in the modern world.
This is not a book to be read in one sitting but should be savored in small chunks rather than devoured. I truly enjoyed the opportunity to experience this classic book.
