Shocking story for 1909. It looks just like what the future of the 21st century might become. I've often laughed at the thought of two people sittting across from one another at a coffee shop and texting one another on their mobile phones.

Everyone who would rather to talk to their friends online than go out should read this.
Read it, do not just read a review of it. It is a short story that will make you think.
Keep in mind all the time that it was written in 1909.

This is a dystopian horror story about a society that's utterly dependent. It's pretty well written.
