H.G. Wells, a pioneer in the science fiction genre, produced awesomely imaginative novels whose technologies seem impossibly sophisticated for a writer living in an era before automobiles and the widespread application of electricity. In his work The Time Machine, Wells’ Time Traveller, a gentleman inventor living in England, traverses first thousands of years and then millions into the future, before bringing back the knowledge of the grave degeneration of the human race and the planet. One wonders if Wells could truly see into the future, as over 100 years after its publication date his visions seem timelier than ever.

Candy. A Sunday afternoon movie. Fun. Timeless...yes a pun. A comic book without pictures. Delightful. One of the beginning books to hook me into scifi.

This short novel not only has a great story, but it is written in an elegant style, emulative of classic fiction of the period.

An authorized sequel to commemorate the 100th anniversary of TTM was released in 1995, written by British sci-fi author Stephen Baxter. It's a pretty good read.

There's no need for spoilers. You don't find out about the Morlocks and their doings until mid book. Horrible way of reviewing books without warnings.

Could this at least be posted on instead of being posted here? Like i am so confused as to what is happening here, so can anyone here take some of their time out and explain here?
