The Time Machine

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells Book Summary

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. Wells's transparent commentary on the capitalist society was an instant bestseller and launched the time-travel genre.
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.

- The time machine1 star

This book was ok like it was boring but it was actually kinda good but I wouldn’t recommend this to you at all it’s just a stupid book in general and has no real meaning

- the Time Machine Reveiw5 star

This book is amazing! I love it.

- I absolutely loved it5 star

Wonderful book by a wonderful author

- Time Mechine5 star

To go forward in time to make things better for humanity it would be worth it. I sometimes sit and wonder myself how can I bring peace and make the world a better place...

- Time Machine by HG Wells is timeless and classic, highly recommend to read!!!5 star

This one of my favorite books I ever read when I was teenager in 6th grade then Mr Ruscavage introduced me and my classmates to 1960s film based on that book which produced by george pals that movie is much better than that 2002 time machine reboot was.

- Chilling5 star

Wells takes the concept of time travel and runs with it full speed ahead, or should that be behind? This is still the best time travel story ever written.

- One of my favorite reads5 star

Short and sweet. It's a quick read that leaves you feeling very satisfied. Wells was a master storyteller.

- A Must Read4 star

Enthralling. The Time Traveler's telling of his adventure gave me vivid imagery and a light sense of wonder and amazement. I only wish the ending didn't just drop like it did.

- Not even read it!5 star

I've not even read the book yet and I already looks good at least In my perspective.

- Good Read3 star

Very 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".

- Good book5 star

Dis iz a gud buk cause it haz gud righting.

- 👍🏽5 star

I read this book in 7th grade, and I thought it was really good! Definitely worth a read!

- Give Me More!5 star

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!!!

- Great book4 star

One of the first books I read voluntarily. It was easy for me to be sucked into the plot and story.

- Lame!!!!1 star

Don't get this book there's barely any adventure and there's not much about it it's just boring and terrible

- Yawn1 star

I'm glad the book was short, the excerpts seem longer. I learned some nice big words but other than that the story sucked and the future in it was/is/will be wack!!

- Thrilling and amazing !5 star

I was called to jury duty so I decided to read this book on my phone since it was free . I didn't think it would pull me in like it did and I'm glad I chose this book . Highly recommend it to anyone who likes time travel , mystery , and suspense .

Half of the book is taken up by excerpts from other books, so really it's twice as long as it needs to be

- Great!5 star

I love this book. Who wouldn't love it reading it on iBooks?

- Loved it!5 star

Couldn't put it down...wish it was longer...would love to read more of his travels :)

- A good read5 star

This 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.

- Fantastic read...4 star

...especially for a free book. Well worth the download.

- Pretty Good4 star

This book started off slower than I'd prefer, but it gave an interesting outlook on the thought of the future. The ending was odd and a little disappointing, but that's why authors make sequel. :) beautiful descriptions, good read!!

One of the best books :) not as good as the movie it was kind of short and summarized but very well written.

- Amazing - even for a ten-year-old!5 star

This book is the best science fiction novel that I have ever enjoyed for free and as an ebook. H. G. Wells demonstrates an enormous vocabulary and an understanding of many scientific theories that have actually been proven! Overall, a really good novel to read to pass the time!

- An HG Wells classic5 star

Great read. Classic sci-fi

- amazing5 star

anyone who says this book wasnt good is either too young or immature to handle the thorough description of this thought provoking book.

- Intriguing5 star

This book is a classic. You get a few pages in and your drawn into the story. The setting changes drastically with the time travel and the twist on the futurist area of our planet earth is baffling. Get ready to immerse yourself into a book that sends your imagination on a joinery.

- From random5 star

All of my friends love this book and I can't wait to read it I am so exited!😃😘😉

I bought this book, and finished it the same day. Instantly became one of my favorites. LOVE THIS BOOK!!!

- Nice Classic ;-)5 star

This is a nice classic. I read this in 3rd grade for enrichment. It's a nice book and I'm 10 years old.

- Didn't want it to end!5 star

It's great when you get that type of feeling from a book. The story was simple, yet very thought provoking. What does the future have in store for mankind? Are we doomed to a life too simple? Can a single even change the outcome of an entire civilzation? Very good book, definitely one of the classics. I need to find more like it!

- Excellent5 star

I'm in the middle of reading and it is great so far. I love the depth to the book and how he talks about the changing of our civilization and how in comparison the future world and our world really isn't that different.

- Amazing!!5 star

This classic literary tale has stolen my heart! I had always heard of The Time Machine, and seen the movies. Now, as I finally have read the story, it's so amazingly captivating that I couldn't put it down until the last page.
