Rate this:
This is a tale of a young daydreamer living in a small town in Edwardian England. He is a quiet man who prefers reading a story of adventure to actually living it. He marries for convenience, not love, and opens a shop in town. As the story progresses, however, Mr. Polly is taken on a series of twists and turns and he begins to seek something more in life. While many of H.G. Wells' stories are science fiction tales that are plot driven in nature, this comedic gem is a character driven study of the human condition. Be sure to discover the deeper message Wells conveys in this wonderful little story.
