This audiobook is a pleasure to listen to. An ensemble of English narrators escorts the listener into the marvelous imaginings of Wells. Among the many auditory delights, James Gillies's nuanced performance of "The Magic Shop," Greg Wagland's almost incantatory treatment of "The Door in the Wall," and Nigel Patterson's heart-stopping yet subtle rendition of the science fiction gem "The Star" excel. This audiobook collects a fine blend of Wells as fantasist ("The Man Who Could Work Miracles"), satirist ("Mrs. Winchelsea's Heart"), and futurist ("The Land Ironclads"). The narrators capture his fine ear for language and eye for detail throughout this collection of short fiction written from the late nineteenth to early twentieth centuries. A.D.M.
