Remembrance of Things Past, I was reluctant to jump immediately into the second volume. I went looking for something different.
Of the 45 books I read in 2017, four of those books were written by H.G. Wells: The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The Invisible Man.
After reading a piece written by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, which references Wells' 1933 novel, The Shape of Things to Come, I thought this work by Wells would be a good change of pace.
Because the novel was originally published in 1933, it isn't available for download at Project Gutenberg, but is - thanks to differences in Australian copyright law - available at Project Gutenberg Australia. After downloading the file, it was a matter of creating a pdf of the text and then converting the pdf to mobi.
I began reading the novel last night before bed, and have read 7%.
