H.G.WELLS-AUTHOR

H.G._Wells_by_Beresford.jpg
I have always had a bit of a fascination for this very talented man H.G.Wells especially as he lived here in Folkestone, in fact he had the house built and it still stands today but is a nursing home.  I have been through the grounds and even seen the hut that he did a lot of his writing in.  You can even see the house he rented in Sandgate while the house was being built.
I do not think people are aware of how clever he really was in thinking up things of the future.  Even the house he built had bathrooms for every bedroom something no one else had thought of before and did not even take off until many years later after his death.  He predicted some sort of talking device to contact other people or as it is known today, the phone.
He was a very passionate man in his writing and his personal life, in fact when indulging in a passionate affair it would show in his writing.  His most famous book is The Time Machine which was so well received then, it put him forwards as a most popular author, so many wanted to read his views in his stories.

Folkestone used to be such a grand place, it would be lovely to see it like that again for our future generations.

    Thanks for this post, Karen. I like H. G. Wells too because he combined his scientific knowledge with great storytelling. I didn’t know that he lived here in Folkestone. Can you please tell me the address so I can check it out?
