For those of you who are new to my blog, this section is me sharing with you my journey through the modern and classic works of literature. Please, feel free to recommend any book.
The Door in the Wall – H. G. Wells: 3 stars.
H. G. Wells’ four-chapter story transports the reader into a mysterious world.
The title of the book describes the premise accurately – a door in a wall. What lies behind this door, however, and the existence of the door itself is something that we cannot be sure of.
The conclusion of the story is simple: whether the door existed of not, it was an escape; and that’s something we are all looking for.
H. G. Wells’ book gets 3 stars: One, for the creative plot that kept me hooked enough to read the whole book the first time I picked it up. Two, for being ahead of its time and narrating in the most modern way. And, three, for the conclusion of this fantastic read, which is every bit realistic.
Next review: By Blood – Ellen Ullman.
