This 'book' is the typical result you obtain when you put total, unquestioning faith in technology. The original was scanned and processed by information technology, but never verified for validity by human eyes. In this case the ebook is so badly garbled that it is unreadable. The download was free, but the book was. not worth the time it took to transfer the data.

many of these cheap publications of classics end up with lines, sometimes even pages of undecipherable mess. i really wish there was a way to tell before i buy the book if it was full of crap like that. guess that's why i'm writing a review, so you don't have to. if you are patient enough to sift through the mess then it's a great deal!

I thought this book had a very good premise. A man falls into a trance and wakes up 200 years later and ends up owning half the world. The first 100 pages a very enjoyable and exciting but the book became slow moving towards the end but I still recommend it to any reader of science fiction.

Very fascinating. Makes for a good read. This version is good too, with no errors. The other comments are for another version of the book.

I think this is one of Wells best.The sleeper is a man that spends 500 years in a comma. When he wakes he finds that he owns the world. The best part of this book is Wells predictions of a future society.

It had to happen some time. This is the first book I have ever made a conscious choice to stop reading. Everything moved so slowly, it seemed very disjointed, and I just couldn't bring myself to read more than a few pages at a time.

The formatting makes this unreadable

Excellent premise but overly long. I felt Wells could have spent more tme on character development and less time on the MANY details of the new world. Interesting how the power transfer to one man was achieved, though.

A very interesting and entertaining read, and a nice version, which is error free. Very well-done. Wells is always intriguing.

This version was so full of typographical errors and gaps I could barely read it. I bet it was good if it had been done properly
