The Sleeper Awakes  (1910) 
by H. G. Wells
1910. The Sleeper Awakes is a dystopian novel by H. G. Wells about a man who sleeps for two hundred and three years, waking up in a completely transformed London, where, because of compound interest on his bank accounts, he has become the richest man in the world. A fanatic socialist and author of prophetic writings, the main character awakes to see his dreams realized, and the future revealed to him in all its horrors and malformities.— Excerpted from The Sleeper Awakes on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
