"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

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.
