“The First Men in the Moon” by H. G. Wells
H. G. Wells himself called “The First Men in the Moon” to be one of his most “fantastic stories”. The book tells about the broke London businessman Bedford who retreats to the countryside hoping to write a play that will solve his financial problems. At the small town of Kent he meets the reclusive physicist Mr. Cavor, who has developed a new material called cavorite which can overcome gravity. Bedford sees the tremendous financial potential of his invention and decides to befriend Cavor. Eventually Cavor comes up with the idea of using the cavorite to create a spaceship, which can take them to the Moon. He manages to persuade Bedford to join him on his voyage and they set off. Once they arrive on the Moon, they realize that mankind’s knowledge about it has been fundamentally wrong. With the uprising of the sun the desolate landscape quickly gets covered by rapidly growing strange plants. Soon they find out that the Moon not only hides peculiar vegetation but is also the home of complex and diverse life forms.
