Summary

Three thrilling and thoughtful works of science fiction from a literary giant.   From one of the great writers and thinkers of the modern era, this volume includes three brilliant novels.  The War in the Air: Filled with petrol-powered war machines, ironclads, bombardments, and espionage, this novel, a cornerstone of early science fiction, prophesied methods of warfare that would only develop later in the twentieth century.  The Sleeper Awakes: After falling into a drug-induced sleep in 1897 London, a man is stunned to wake in the year 2100 to a world he does not know—but this world knows him—in this prophetic, unsettling novel about technology and humanity.  The Time Machine: A scientist journeys hundreds of thousands of years into the future to discover how humanity has evolved—and while Earth may seem radically different on the surface, some things have remained the same . . . belowground.

    The Awakening Audiobook, originally titled A Solitary Soul, is a novel by Kate Chopin, first published in 1899. Set in New Orleans and the Southern Louisiana coast at the end of the nineteenth century, the plot centers on Edna Pontellier and her struggle to reconcile her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century American South. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women's issues without condescension. It is also widely seen as a landmark work of early feminism, generating mixed reaction from contemporary readers and criticism. The novel's blend of realistic narrative, incisive social commentary, and psychological complexity makes The Awakening a precursor of American modernist literature; it prefigures the works of American novelists such as William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway and echoes the works of contemporaries such as Edith Wharton and Henry James. It can also be considered among the first Southern works in a tradition that would culminate with the modern masterpieces of Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter, and Tennessee Williams.
