    When H.G. Wells is sent to the frontlines in this World War I era novel, he comes home with a lot more than he could have ever guessed. We are talking ghosts. The Haunting of H.G. Wells is a standalone novel written by Robert Masello. When H.G. Wells is sent to the frontlines in order to gather information for a publication, meant to act as a morale boo

    I have very mixed feelings about this book. There are parts I loved, and parts I really did not like.

    We follow HG Wells as he travels to the front to write a morale boosting story during WWI. There he discovers a plot against the British, and back home gets himself quite involved in saving king and country. We also follow Jane, his wife, who toge

    Robert Masello seems to choose a famous individual to fill the pages of his novels that come across in an entertaining and fast paced format. I have picked up a few of Masello's other works and have enjoyed those also. H.G. Wells is the highlight in this story and has just the right amount of action, romance, and historical facts. A copy of this book was provided

    I have found there is never an easy way to write a review for books I have mixed feelings about. This is one such book for me, where I found myself enjoying some parts and really disliking others.

    Set at the beginning years of WWI in 1914-1915, the main story begins when Churchill asks Wells to go to the front lines of the war. He needs Wells to go and fin

    H.G. Wells is sent to the trenches of the First World War by his friend Winston Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty, to write morale-boosting reports on the war effort. He witnesses the horrors of the war firsthand, is nearly killed by an explosion, but is saved by a group of multinational deserters living in abandoned tunnels. One of them, a former German officer

    Not Really About the Haunting...

    I'll admit I was drawn to this book by the title, as I do like stories with a paranormal element. Despite its prominence in the title, this aspect was downplayed, to the novel’s detriment. Before moving on to other things that bothered me, I have to say that the author has an excellent writing style. It is smooth and easy to read, a

    “The Haunting of H. G. Wells” by Robert Masello attracted me by its creativity and inventiveness. The novel also challenged me due to its over-the-top creativity and inventiveness. I suspect that this book would have “jazzed” me in my teens and twenties; however, as an old codger having just reached senior citizen official status I found myself first picking up then putting

    -----Thanks to Net Galley for providing this book!-----

    The Haunting of H.G. Wells wouldn't be a typical book for me, however, haunting was in the title (Yes I'm a sucker for the supernatural).  Even though the book was well written, it moved like molasses for me.  The point was to set the story and the scene for that period, as Wells was haunted by his transgressions and ti

    I stopped at 68% when the only character I cared about was needlessly killed.
    It’s fiction set during World War I in England and also briefly the Belgian front, with historical figures such as Churchill in contrived situations.
    The book starts appealingly with a fantasy of Saint George sending help to the UK soldiers who are hopelessly outnumbered. Then it splinters into several t

    The more you read the book and get acquainted with all the characters, you just cannot believe your luck ! I wish that the story would not end , that I could go back to more adventures ... The introduction sets the action during the first world war, and next we embark on a journey through fears, love, adventures, spiritism, and heroism. We learn about great figures and we see the everyday combat o
