Wells Herbert George. IN THE DAYS OF THE COMET BY H. G. WELLS. Long ago in my crude unhappy youth, I conceived the desire of writing a book

Wells Herbert George. Long ago in my crude unhappy youth, I conceived the desire of writing a book. To scribble secretly and dream of authorship was one of my chief alleviations, and I read with a sympathetic envy every scrap I could get about the world of literature and the lives of literary people. It is something, even amidst this present happiness, to find leisure and opportunity to take up and partially realize these old and hopeless dreams.

Book the first the comet. Chapter the first dust in the shadows. Section 1. I HAVE set myself to write the story of the Great Change, so far as it has affected my own life and the lives of one or two people closely connected with me, primarily to please myself.

It was a very comfortable chair, and well placed under the light. I indicated the manuscript.

A comet rushes toward the earth, a deadly, glowing orb that soon fills the sky and promises doom. When mankind wakes up, everyone is completely and profoundly different. But mankind is too busy hating, stealing, scheming, and killing to care. An ill-fated romance between Willie Leadford and Nettie Stuart unfolds in a world buried in misery and bent on its own destruction. After the earth passes through the comet's tail, suffering, pettiness, and injustice melt away.

Yes some socialism but that is not the essence of the book. In fact the first half of the book satirizes socialism.

I see the book as similar to buddhist enlightenment stories, only it happens not to one deserving adept, but to everyone on earth through the gift gas from a comet. Yes wells adds what he thinks the world will look like after people think more compassionately, and this detracts a little from the beauty and purpose of the story as a whole. He adds a few biblical references to suggest the end time is a time on earth after people have embraced a more natural way of being.. These aside, the book is still relevant today to suggest that our true nature has always been compassion, that our whole attitude of competitive advantage could be washed away overnight.

This book shows its age in the language and in the writing. It is very much a philosophical story which requires the reader to think and to feel. For those of us unused to a story like this, it is a slow and somewhat difficult read. There is action but it is overwhelmed by the thoughts presented. I'm glad I finished it. I'm still trying to fully understand it...
TheSuspect
The coming of the comet promises a superior change in mankind. However the destruction of art, books , architecture etc denies mankind freewill , eliminating choice is the first thing an Authoritarian Government would do (see Putin,Eregon)

I enjoy stories of the future. Usually the future is ugly (1984), or ugly beneath a veneer of perfection (Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, This Perfect Day)."Comet" differs in that it shows the present to be the hellish existence, and it's the future that holds bright promise.
Dugor
He goes on and on (and on) describing a room or other scene. The book is also strongly socialist in Outlook.
Kiutondyl
A lost classic. Can't believe I had never read it. The atmosphere of the story is compelling. How scary living in a society so devoid of passion and emotion.
Togar
A good read
Alternate Reality told as Matter-of-fact event narrative
