The Time Machine by H.G. Wells Book Summary

The H.G. Wells classic that helped launch the time travel genre.

The Time Traveller, a dreamer obsessed with traveling through time, builds himself a time machine and, much to his surprise, travels over 800,000 years into the future. He lands in the year 802701: the world has been transformed by a society living in apparent harmony and bliss, but as the Traveler stays in the future he discovers a hidden barbaric and depraved subterranean class.

The Time Machine inspired the international bestseller The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma. As a gift to our readers, we are including the first three chapters of The Map of Time in this ebook edition.

Good ReadVery short and sweet. It would be worthy of 4-5 stars if the author went more wild with his story line. I liked the idea and the details of his idea but I found myself disappointed with the quick ending. It wasn't as much of a cliff hanger as it was a "this had much more potential"..Score: 3/5

Give Me More!For crying in the night! That's it? The adventure ends and every bit of mystery remains a secret! At the height of intrigue, the story halts so abruptly my head is still spinning. I will not say it comes to an end because plainly there are chapters upon chapters more to be told! Where is the end? Where are the missing pages between the point where my eyes ran out of words and that sense of closure? This is a glorious job of storytelling! A book teeming with creativity! I want more! Yes, the intent of Mr. Wells' work may have been to prove the folly of a class system that separates and oppresses. He points out in horrific fashion how the tables can drastically turn. And I grasp the message that trials and hardships do indeed compel the human race to seek greater knowledge, while total tranquility lends to stagnant lives and stupidity. Those points are made in the first excursion, but could not the story have continued with the same entrancing force simply for the sake of entertainment? I'm left wanting to such a degree that I nearly hate the book as much as I love it!!!.Score: 5/5

A good readThis book is more of a suspense in some ways, I didn't expect some of the events that happened to occur. I would recommend it to anyone who likes fiction, I read it in three hours, 1 hour last night, and 1 and a half this morning. I was eager to finish it and get to the end. A word of advice; when reading this, make your mind think like a child, that way you won't question the events as much and you can picture what is happening..Score: 5/5
