Meanwhile, he saves an Eloi named Weena from drowning as none of the other Eloi take any notice of her plight, and they develop an innocently affectionate relationship over the course of several days. Wells and the Anti-Utopians.

    Newsweek praised the book as "sad, true and hilarious"; [15] The Washington Post called it "superb", [16] and "a wildly addictive, high-octane narrative".
