The boxed set was done completely well. Each cover looks precise without flaw. Each book is smaller than I anticipated, since I usually like bigger sized books, but the cover and the feel of the books make it to the point where it anything had been changed, it wouldn’t be the same. Absolutely amazing.

I had never read H.G. Wells before buying this, and I started with The Invisible Man. I must say, I love his directness, and he has an almost meanness in the way he writes. It is very unique and almost modern, considering he wrote in the same time as say Bram Stoker. The Island of Doctor Moreau was absolutely chilling, yet something essential to my vocabulary now. I have not read them all yet, but I will say I love the size of the books (a bit larger than my hand) and the fabric covers give them a sturdy quality. The silver text on the front started to wear a bit, but I don''t mind, it just shows that the book went with me everywhere (small size + excellent story). I would buy this for anyone wishing to build a library, or someone who is a fan of nineteenth century/Victorian literature.

I especially liked the country of blind people. From a philosophical standpoint I found it fascinating. The crystal egg was also a good story but for more entertainment reasons. The Dr. Moreau story was very difficult to get through from today''s perspective. The words black faced, negroid man, negro etc. kept coming up. I know that is how people spoke back in the day but I still felt uncomfortable about it.

This broke my kindle...the first purchase ever do that
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 30, 2019
It wouldn''t open properly, and when it did finally open I got a weird message that I had never seen before (something like ''Application Error''). A hard reboot fixed the problem eventually, but there was a long moment when the kindle would not restart.
