And just exactly who the main character might be is another issue. The character that the book is mainly concerned with is actually one who wrote a journal that is being read by another character. I'm not sure why Wells wanted to tell the story two characters removed, but it added nothing as far as I could see except to prolong an already too-long, too-detailed story.
I don't know how readers of that time regarded the detailed, slow-moving style that Wells employed for this story (and many other stories of his that I have read), but for the modern reader it makes a poor fit. I rate this story at 2 out of 5 stars. I was prepared to award it only one star, but the beautiful passages near the end nearly redeemed it.
