Synopsis:

When a Victorian scientist propels himself into the year a.d. 802,701, he is initially delighted to find that suffering has been replaced by beauty, contentment, and peace. Entranced at first by the Eloi, an elfin species descended from man, he soon realizes that these beautiful people are simply remnants of a once-great culture—now weak and childishly afraid of the dark. They have every reason to be afraid: in deep tunnels beneath their paradise lurks another race descended from humanity—the sinister Morlocks. And when the scientist’s time machine vanishes, it becomes clear he must search these tunnels if he is ever to return to his own era.

  • Includes a newly established text, a full biographical essay on Wells, a list of further reading, and detailed notes
  • Marina Warner’s introduction considers Wells’s development of the “scientific romance” and places the novel in the context of its time

 


Review:
The Time Traveller steps into his machine and emerges in the year 802,700 a utopian age of peace and harmony. That is, until the ruckus of the theft of his machine changes all that. Ben Kingsley, the reader, is known for his many roles onscreen, including Ghandi.

From the Publisher

Review:
When the Time Traveller courageously stepped out of his machine for the first time, he found himself in the year 802,700--and everything has changed.  In another, more utopian age, creatures seemed to dwell together in perfect harmony.  The Time Traveller thought he could study these marvelous beings--unearth their secret and then retum to his own time--until he discovered that his invention, his only avenue of escape, had been stolen.  H.G. Well's famous novel of one man's astonishing journey beyond the conventional limits of the imagination first appeared in 1895.  It won him immediate recognition, and has been regarded ever since as one of the great masterpieces in the literature of science fiction.
