For more than 100 years, science-fiction writers around the world have captured our imaginations with speculations about journeys into the past or future. Countless novels, short stories, movies, and TV shows have used or adapted the theme of time travel. However, all of them owe a debt to Herbert George Wells. This, his first major novel, published in 1895, was the origin of the very concept of time travel. It is considered by many to be one of the greatest science-fiction novels of all time.

In this story, the Time Traveller spins forward from late 19th century London to the year 802,701 where two rival species of human descendants co-exist in tension. The Eloi live in an apparent paradise, although constantly fearful of their nocturnal subterranean predators, the Morlocks. Now you can have this incomparable story read to you.

    " It was my third Wells's novel, after "Men Like Gods" and "The War of the Worlds", and I have to say that this one is the best of them. I do not want to spoil the pleasure of reading it, so I will add only that Wells has a point. The fear of what human civilization might become in the future is quite understandable. Even though "Time Machine" was published in 1895, the feelings of the protagonist seem to be universal. I recommend it to everyone, not only science-fiction fans. "

    " This book is a work of true imagination and vision. It is one of the fundamental science fiction novels, and includes many concepts that at the time may have seemed crazy, but now are very possible. This book has inspired authors and scientists alike, introducing concepts with which we are rather familiar now. The book is well written, and the H.G. Wells can be described as nothing less than a genius after this piece of work. I'd recommend this to everyone with an interest in Science Fiction and Science. "

    " I can't believe I never read this. It is fantastic. Cleverly written and very thought provoking with an interesting theory on the fate of the human race. "

    " This is my favorite H.G. Wells novel. I think I like it because of how suspenseful it is and how it has this slowly growing fear of the future which builds and builds until it finally explodes. This man was so ahead of his time. Brillant. "
