I bought my copy of "The New Machiavelli" all the way back in 1991; it sat unopened on my bookshelf for 18 years. There was a good reason for that! Wells' confessional novel is quite tedious: it's perhaps the most egotistical autobiographical novel I've ever read. The book starts out well, with a pleasant description of the sleepy suburban town where "Remington" (Wells) passes his adoloscence. But soon the novel is encumbered by a number of incidents that only exist to settle personal scores, and when politics of early twentieth century Britain become the main subject of the book, interest further dwindles. It's actually a little startling to see how much Wells bought into the Edwardian fad for eugenics! The final section, which deals gushingly with Remington's love life, contains some of the most embarrassingly bad prose I've encountered in recent years. The second star I've provided is only an expression of the novel's historical interest. As a work of literature, I would give it just one star.
