A great reading of a classic text. The book tells the rather dark prediction of how man, having reached his pinnacle in the Victorian age, will devolve into sub-human creatures again thousands of years from now. It made me glad I don't look to naturalistic evolution to explain man today, or the future would look very dark indeed.

This is such a scifi classic that I have sort of been avoiding it. However...seeing that this version was narrated by Mark Nelson...I jumped right in. Absolutely no disappointment here. I loved the descriptive depths achieved and the ideas advanced for the time the book was written. Give it a few months and I will listen again....

Well read.

(4 stars)

Narration was pleasant and easy to listen to. Story very interesting to hear an imagined fuyure of the human race from someone who lived and penned this back before current technology. Glad to have finally gotten around to 'reading' this classic.

A Great performance.

I have listened to multiple books. Mr Nelson is by far the most professional reader I have heard. The quality matches books from professionally-produced audiobooks. The story is interesting and enjoyable. Congratulations to Mr. Nelson for his excellent performance!
