This book is for people who are board and want to be board! It has no appropriate meaning. It is supposed to be a exiting event but the autor has turned it into a boaring book. This book is a must not read! The structure of the book is good butit is told from a first person perspective.

This sci fi book by H.G Wells is entertaining but also hard to understand. being a girl my self i feel that it appeals to boys more than girls. this book is a good read but i would not read it a second time
