Summary

"The Time Machine" is a science fiction novella by H. G. Wells, published in 1895 and written as a frame narrative.

One of the most renowned works of science fiction, "The Time Machine" reflects on the adventures of The Time Traveller - a man who constructs a machine which allows him to explore what the future has to offer. As he travels to as far as 802,701 AD, The Time Traveller encounters a world dominated by two types of creatures - beautiful and fragile Eloi and repulsive and brutal Morlocks. His journey then turns quickly from a series of observations into a dangerous quest to return back home, as he realizes that Morlocks have stolen his machine. A dystopian novel that fascinates the readers from the very beginning, The Time Machine both reflects Wells’s sceptical outlook on the future of the Late Victorian England and makes the reader meditate on the future of our civilization.

Famous works of the author Herbert Wells: "The Time Machine", "The War of the Worlds", "The War in the Air", "The Island of Dr. Moreau", "The Complete Science Fiction Treasury of H.G. Wells", "The Invisible Man", "When the Sleeper Wakes", "The First Men in the Moon", "The Food of the Gods", "The Magic Shop".

Boring and had a hard time finishing the book.

This was a very boring book and had a hard time finishing it. I kept going to the end, but nothing exciting happened.

terrible reading of a classic

I could not finish this reading, the narrator is terrible. I do not recommend this even at 10 cents.
