Rarely does one get scared reading a book, but the outright creepy setting and topics in this work will keep you reading on. At ~150 pages, there's no reason not to spend an afternoon or two reading through. Get ready for some heavy religious analogies though!
Of course it's a classic. Great nonetheless, and really gives the reader an insight into Wells' views of society at his time and the path it was on.
The pace and descriptions within the book reflect its setting, a slow English countryside. If you plan on reading or have read any other Wells books, this is definitely worth it. In the end, it reflects his opinions of society and its future. At 100-150 pages, there's no reason not to spend an afternoon or two to see what he has to say :)
Good book, meanders in some places though. It will surprise you in the end. While reading, take particular care to consider that many view Jubal Harshaw as the main character of the book, even though he isn't introduced immediately. His character was possibly the best developed from the book.
