  1. From Amazon : H. G. Wells' 1895 contemporary fantasy novel, The Wonderful Visit is the story of an an angel who spends just over a week in southern England. Mistaken for a bird, it is shot by an amateur ornithologist before being taken care of at a vicarage. The more it learns of Victorian society, the more critical of it it becomes; until, finally, it is denounced as a socialist. I've loved everything I've read of H G Wells and this is no exception. In this story we get a glimpse into Victorian society and seen from the angel's point of view, from the outside, it's completely absurd. As the reader in this time frame i.e. outside the Victorian era you're inclined to agree. Absolutely marvellous, the prose is impeccable and the story, characters and plot amazing. Highly recommended NB I read this in ebook format.
