Book evaluation

I liked this book, it was a classic in the form of a comic book. It makes it more approachable and i may get the original novel an read it now that i'm introduced to it. I feel the pacing was slow enough to feel all the breathtaking surroundings and makes the world feel alive. But the pacing was still fast enough to keep my attention. The ending was interesting and could be seen in two different ways.


"at sight of these friendly creatures (Eloi), I suddenly lost my fears"
"Have these people no fears at all"
"The beauty of the people in the Upperworld covered the real ugliness of this world"
