5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book, 21 Sep 2000
A wonderful book of short stories looking at the relationship between man and the natural world. The Machine Stops is a stark warning against too much reliance on technology, relevant now even more than when it was written, with the increase of computers in the home and the internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tremendous science fiction story (Machine Stops), 7 Nov 1999
By A Customer
A brilliant science fiction story written at a time whn few stories like that were written. It is about an underground city where suddenly the machinery preserving life begins to break down. Beautifully written.

This review is from: The Machine Stops and Other Stories (Collector's Library) (Hardcover)
A very interesting collection of short stories. E.M. Forster is not at home with the short story format, the novel being his forte. His stories are good but he tends towards character development when plot is of the essence. O'Henry and Chekov are masters of this genre. However Forester is worth reading.

This review is from: The Machine Stops and Other Stories (Collector's Library) (Hardcover)
Short stories from one of English literature's "greats". Read it on holiday in Madeira overlooking the blue Atlantic. Shades of Churchill! Enjoyed every story and the size of the book makes it easy to put in your pocket for the walk back to the hotel!

Haven't read it yet, as I've been away, but It's been on my "must read" list for a while, so I'm very happy I finally got it. Can't wait to start reading it. Thank you.
