    " Nice style, a little iffy on the plot. 3.5/5 "

    " It wasn't the best reading but i liked it. A friend of mine recommended it to me. I enjoyed the beginnig very much where the Time Traveler and other scientists had a tight discussion about the forth dimension "Time". But the Time Treveler's adventures in the future seemed to me pretty childish. "

    " A classic, what else can be said. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Williams | 1/24/2014

    " Too good and ground-breaking to argue about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 1/21/2014

    " The concept of time travel has fascinated man since it was first dreamt. This novel is proof of the degree to which that fascination has endured. Emotional and thought-provoking writing made it quite simple to read this in one sitting. The Morlocks sent shivers down my spine... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ethan McKenzie | 1/16/2014

    " This book is really a classic by HG Wells. I am a personal fan of him. I like the way he described how the time machine came about. I personally think that there is such a thing called time machine. After reading this book, I always fantasizes that I can go back in time. Enjoy this one...You will not regret it. Cheers. Ethan "

    " So, somehow, I managed to live my whole life without reading The Time Machine, or, indeed, any other work by H.G. Wells. It was never required in school, and the movie versions I watched never interested me. But it was free on my Kindle, and looking for a book that wouldn't require too much emotional or temporal investment (aren't you ever in those sorts of moods?) I finally decided to read it. And boy, am I glad I did. No, it's not my favorite book ever. I'll probably never read it again. But it was definitely enjoyable, an adventure in the old-fashioned literary sense of the word. I was surprised by how thoroughly creeped-out I was by Wells' description of the Morlocks, which, I confess, gave me the absolute willies. If you haven't read this book, you might as well. It takes almost no time, is an easy read, and is entertaining. You'll never get caught up by character descriptions or fall in love with someone's personality, but I rather suspect this was Wells' goal. If he'd wanted you to get excited by a character, he probably would've actually named some of them, beyond two servants and one of the Eloi. Anyway, give it a read. What have you got to lose? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 StrangeBedfellows | 1/13/2014

    " Rather blah, really. I can imagine how, in its time, this was a remarkable book; however, it's not a very good story. I liked 'Island of Dr. Moreau' better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 12/24/2013

    " The ending is what really does it for me, the invitation to create the next adventure on your own. Wonderful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela C | 12/18/2013

    " I was expecting this to be more flying cars and futuristic fantasy, not a sociopolitical commentary but I enjoyed it all the same. This book probably holds up to the tests of time because there's no hypothesis about future technology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andilyn | 12/16/2013

    " I thought it was a bit creepy but so fascinating--Wells, what an imagination. So I'm torn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clint A | 11/23/2013

    " Great read for a young reader. I think I may have been fifteen or so when I read this. Wells was a great pioneer of science fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audrey Knipfer | 6/4/2013

    " A very interesting tale of time travel. I think the only negative would be that it has an odd perspective, as being written by the friend who is currently telling the story. It made it difficult to really loose one self in the story. However, I still loved the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren Seliga | 5/9/2013

    " I didn't think much of this. luckily it wasn't super long I found maybe a chapter or two genuinely interesting "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremyc | 1/23/2013

    " Really good Victorian era Sci-Fi. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanie | 1/8/2013

    " Another excellent BBC audiobook. Absolutely loved everything about it. Listened to it all in 1 day (very short). I have already downloaded the Kindle version so I can read the whole text. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 12/31/2012

    " I had forgotten how cute the details were in this story. Part of me wishes that it was written as a serial and this much longer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valli | 9/9/2012

    " Recommended by a student. I'm glad I read it--it's so relevant today. As an added bonus, it's a FREE download. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delilah Trenaman | 7/27/2012

    " The author had quite an imagination for the time that this book was written in. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Koblos | 7/16/2012

    " Interesting ideas about the future of society, technology, power and evolution. Somehow I wish Wells would have dealt on these matters a bit more. However, reading it along with Brave New World and 1984 makes up for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gsvg | 7/7/2012

    " A great commentary on the inevitable fruitlessness of todays social order. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruby Ramirez | 3/6/2012

    " I felt the story was brilliantly written,despite what seemed a slightly hurried denouement, and the ending was just perfect. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leila | 12/11/2011

    " Very confusing for me. I had a hard time figuring out what the author was trying to say. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 9/24/2011

    " *contained within Barnes & Noble anthology* "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dangmhoang | 6/8/2011

    " Great book. A little short but its always interesting to see how history sees the future. I have read it before but it was a free read on Google's Play books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 5/21/2011

    " An interesting read though perhaps Wells' vision of the future is somewhat dated as our society moves farther away from the manufacturing of the Industrial age and more to the service and computers of the Information Age. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremiah | 5/20/2011

    " Enjoyed this one alot, going to have the watch the movie too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 5/17/2011

    " Love the constant allegory of the destruction that mankind brought about on itself, and the terrible wrath that it played out on us through the ages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/16/2011

    " The most unique view into mankind's history I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine Maddox | 5/14/2011

    " I am reading it, I am enjoying it, this is my first HG Wells read. The language is antiquated, it might bother some, but it is interesting enough that I have downloaded War of the Worlds to also read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 G.l. | 5/8/2011

    " Where would Sci-Fi be without this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sidharth | 5/6/2011

    " I read and honestly I was not able to visualise all that he wrote whatever i was able to for that I am happy that i read this one "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LuckyCharmer | 5/4/2011

    " Good, but a little too wordy... still good though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 5/2/2011

    " Finally got around to this one, and very glad I did. Prompted immediate acquisition of additional works by Wells, I so thoroughly enjoyed it. Fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ella Brooke | 5/2/2011

    " I liked the anthropological tone of the narrator describing the future races. It's definitely a product of the 1800's and was very similar to the ethnologies of the time. "

About the Author

H. G. Wells (1866–1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900–1920) were more realistic and covered lower-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society.
