A great read, even 100 years later.I'm only 13 years old, and this story blew my mind. It's amazing a man that lived in the 1890's could make up a story like this. Or did or did he?....Score: 4/5

Classic intro to time travelShort book and a great read. From wikipedia: The book's protagonist is an English scientist and gentleman inventor living in Richmond, Surrey, identified by a narrator simply as the Time Traveller. The narrator recounts the Traveller's lecture to his weekly dinner guests that time is simply a fourth dimension, and his demonstration of a tabletop model machine for travelling through it. He reveals that he has built a machine capable of carrying a person, and returns at dinner the following week to recount a remarkable tale, becoming the new narrator:.Score: 5/5

Amazing!Very thought provoking and interesting! Definitely recommend to all. H. G. Wells is a wizard of words! (Note: I’m a middle schooler. The book was a little challenging at parts, but, overall, it made sense. Don’t be scared!).Score: 5/5

BreathtakingI recently picked up reading again and I cannot stress enough how much this book did to remind me of the power of my imagination. Paired with the beautifully written words in this book, I delved deep into each page. I finished the book, and to say I was in the shoes of the time traveler is a huge understatement. I felt like I had gone on the entire trip myself!.Score: 5/5

Wow great book!!I was so happy with this book, and it was free! Definitely get this book. It broadened my word vocabulary and was not one of those boring books usually made from long ago. This book is not hard to read at all, especially with the dictionary built in when you hold down on the word! It doesn't get much easier than apple, I must say. I never read, and I had to read this book for high school, so if i can read it, anyone can! Recommend it to EVERYONE! Come on now! It is FREE! Give it a shot! Haha :) ***SPOILER ALERT!*** I was not expecting the Time Traveller to disappear! I was hoping there would be a sequel including the next adventure and descriptions of pictures! I do enjoy though how Wells leaves it to your imagination to come up with what happened to him..Score: 5/5

True InsightThis is such an incredible piece of history. It comes from a time when the writer is not so concerned with the technology and special effects that science offers. Instead, he explores what could happen in the heart, in the development of the personality of humanity. We see here the forebears of so much that was written and created in other media over the next century. But much classier..Score: 5/5

An amazing bookA lot times when I read a book I break it into pieces. Like I say I'll read 20 pages a day or 3 chapters a day, but with this book I didn't do that I read the entire book in one whole day. This book is one of the best books I have ever read and it truly is a classic. I highly recommend it to science fiction lovers like me..Score: 5/5

Required ReadThis book is definitely not the best science fiction tale. It is, however, an exceptional tale about a time traveller that was written in 1898! It's amazing to read about H.G. Wells' view of 6,000 years into the future. He wrote it over 100 years ago yet his guess as to the state of the earth is as good as anyone could write today. Go read this book to read, if nothing else, why time machines are a household term today..Score: 4/5

The 4th dimensionThe beginning was quite perplexing I admit, however, as the story progressed so did my interest in this work. The idea of time as a dimension was what really drew my interest. Physics buffs will love this book, that isn't to say it's a purely scientific work, philosophical questions arise as well: morality, ethics, and virtue. I enjoyed the book immensely it juxtaposed subjects of interest into a short novella without jeopardizing the work itself. To the 4th dimension, I salute it's wonders and perplexities..Score: 5/5

Wonderment Never DiesI first read this book at the age of seven. At that time, this book fueled my boyish imagination and instilled in me the spirit of exploration and an undying hunger for knowledge and excitement. It gave me the courage and motivation to try many new things and to challenge myself in all that I do. I am seventeen now. This is my fourth time reading this book. And I feel like I'm seven again..Score: 5/5

Captivating!H.G. Wells was ahead of his time when he wrote this classic. In every chapter, he invites the reader to use his/her imagination and to visualize the facial expressions and tone of voice that the Time Traveler used when telling his story. In my childhood, my only familiarity of this classic was the film adaptation of George Pal. Reading this book was like watching a special edition of the film..Score: 5/5

IncredibleWells has always been one of my favourite authors, but I have to say that out of all his books I've read, this one is by far the best. The way he describes the world of the Future is unbelievable. I could easily imagine the scenery around me and what it would have been like to be there. My only issue is that it is a short novel. 113 pages if memory serves. I really wish that he would have written more, but it really is an exquisite book. I would recommend it to anyone..Score: 5/5

Unsurpassed geniusH.G Wells has pioneered the works of Science fiction for a vast portion of the 19th century and 20th century. He has not only predicted the course of warfare and humanity in his book,outlining the social inequality that is ever present in our modern age, he has produced novel characters that use not language, but contemplation to express themselves. This very notion is unique upon books loved and enjoyed by all. All in all, the time machine blends a prediction and doubt,reality and fiction in a manner that is both enjoyable and thrilling. In actual fact, I would be willing to say that H.G well has accurately found a possible and highly plausible future..Score: 4/5
