Boon By H. G. Wells


H. G. Wells

Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 149 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1915.


Boon is a 1915 satirical novel by H. G. Wells, although it purports to be by the fictional character Reginald Bliss (Wells denied authorship for some time after the book was published). The book is about Bliss making a book out the fragmentary writings of George Boon. The book was notorious for including a literary assault on Henry James, mocking the authors writing style and characters. James and Wells were long time friends but had fallen out prior to WWI. But Wells doesn't stop there. He also mocks George Bernard Shaw and criticises Friedrich Nietzsche. To even things out, Wells also mocks himself, calling into question and ridiculing a notion he held dear; that of humanity's collective consciousness.
