So just yesterday night I finished reading The Time Machine by H G Wells. I’m sure it’s a book that most of you have heard of, and if you haven’t, you’re probably aware of the 2002 film (nothing like the book at all by the way, just saying). Before I say anything more, I implore you to give this book a go. It’s only 100 or so pages, a very short novel when compared to Tolkien and authors of that ilk, and it’s definitely worth a read. A truly thought-provoking novel, and one I am glad that I have read.
Spoilers ahead readers, so if you want to read this book then please go ahead and do so before you continue!
So, after over a week of trying, I have finally managed to finish reading Thomas More’s Utopia! It’s a bit ridiculous how long it’s taken me to be perfectly honest with you; it is only 100 pages long after all… I’m going to begin by saying that Utopia is by no means one of my favourite books, nor am I likely to read it again. However, it does offer some interesting insight into the personal feelings of Sir Thomas More with regards to the political, social, and religious state of the country at the time of writing.
Spoilers ahead readers! (If I can call them that, there really isn’t much of a story to spoil.)
