The Sleeper Awakesby H. G. Wells
Synopses & Reviews
In The Sleeper Awakes, an insomniac falls into a sleep-like trance for more than two hundred years, and awakes in a society in which the oppressed masses cling desperately to one dream—that the sleeper will awake and lead them all to freedom.
A troubled insomniac in 1890s England falls suddenly into a sleep- like trance, from which he does not awake for over two hundred years. During his centuries of slumber, however, investments are made that make him the richest and most powerful man on Earth.
