It's an entertaining novel and will surely stick to your memory for quite sometime. It was appealing with a twist of surprised.

"What's the matter with kids today?" Lyrics from "Bye Bye Birdie"

Ann Veronica "Vee" asks the question "why can't a woman be like a man" and sets out to find out why. She discovers all sorts of men, some stuffy and some devious. She may one day stumble over the perfect man. She tries to be independent and is thwarted at every turn; that is until she realizes there are better things to do than just compete.

We get to grow with Vee and go through several long dissertations, Ayn Rand style, over politics freedom, love, equality, and whatnot. All the talk loses its way and with dumb luck returns to the story. We are treated to a travelogue and scratch ourselves with a long talk about the prison dingies. Just as it, starts to get interest the story stops dead in the middle of a thought.

The story is ok and some of the subjects brought up are still relevant today. However, if you look a little closer the story as with much fiction is just a venue to express H.G's concepts of free love.

H.G. Wells' novel itself is great, but if you're going to buy it, buy the Penguin edition. This edition is like something I could've made on my printer at home. The text on the pages is slightly crooked. The font is hard to read. There are typos all over the place--they often put 1 instead of I. The cover image is pixellated like they stole the image off the net and blew it up too big and then printed it on an old printer from the 1990s. And, today, the entire dang cover just fell off the book! Who is Quiet Vision Publishing and why are they working out of their parents' basement?
