The First Men in the Moon by H.G. Wells (My Goodreads Review)

The First Men In The Moon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a book that I had always meant to read but never got around to doing. Therefore, after 40 years, I decided to take this off of my 'things to do' list. I think I made a correct choice because I do not think I would have appreciated it as much as I do now. I do not think it is as good as War of the Worlds, The Time Machine or The Invisible Man. However, I think these three mentioned novels are exceptional. The First Men in the Moon was very good. However, if H.G. Wells had only ever written this novel, I think it would stand in the pulp sci-fi sections like Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert Ervin Howard or Michael Moorcock. What I am trying to say is that the other novels put H.G. Wells in a classical writing frame. Whereas this marvellous novel seems to be more like good old pulp sci-fi. I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it.
