the Days of the Comet is a 1906 science fiction novel by H. G.
Wells in which the vapors of a comet are used as a device which
brings about a profound and lasting transformation in the attitudes
and perspectives of humankind. The story revolves around William
Leadford, an unemployed student living in the industrial town of
Clayton in Britain. He is strongly Socialist and strives for a
change in power from upper-class, caused by the squalid living
conditions caused by industrial development in the town and
country. Although dates are never specified, the era is supposed to
be shortly preceding a war to that effect where about half-way
through the book (in the Chapter titled "WAR") Britain declares war
on Germany. For the most part of the first half of the book, it is
a retrospective description by William in first-person describing
the grit and vile impudence that the lower-class resides in, and
develops the love story between Willie and a middle-class girl
named Nettie, living in another town named Checkshill.
