When the Sleeper Wakes | [H.G. Wells]

When the Sleeper Wakes

Graham was a young man when he was overcome by a strange deep sleep. He was still youthful when he finally woke up - two hundred years later! And the world that he resumed life in was a fabulous one, a world of great marvels and scientific achievement, whose strange underlying economy was that it was all his private property, for the acquisition of interest and the testaments of others had made Graham the Sleeper the sole final owner of everything - with an administrative council that dictated to the world in his name!

    "Think Twice"

    I am a Huge fan of H.G. Wells works. The story is interesting...BUT, The narrator of this book is so dull and monotonous, I could not finish it. He literally kept putting me to sleep.

    Listen to the sample before buying.

    "When the Sleeper Awakes - a lost opportunity"

    As a fan of HG Wells, I looked forward to hearing "When the Sleeper Awakes" with some enthusiasm. I had not heard Frederick Davidson read any other titles before this book. The choice of Davidson for "The Sleeper" was, in my opinion, a mistake. I believe that it is possible that his accent and phrasing may be suitable for other genres but, in this case, an opportunity has been lost. I found myself listening to Davidson's interpretation with increasing distraction and occasional annoyance. Can another reader not be found for this excellent book?
