9781420922677: The Time Machine

"The Time Machine" is one of the most loved science fiction novels of all time. H. G. Wells crafts a vivid and haunting picture of an earth some 800,000 years into the future. Written in the late 19th century, "The Time Machine" was the first novel about time travel and its impact on the science fiction genre is unparalleled. "The Time Machine" was written at the beginning of a period of great technological advancement and it is evident that this was of serious concern to Wells. The author poses the question within the framework of the novel; will technology ever go to far? The future world of the Eloi depicted within the novel warns of the dangerous consequences of unchecked technological advancements.

From the Publisher:

"Tom Teti does a more than credible job of animating the several characters who populate this classic."

From the Back Cover:

In The Time Machine Wells pioneers the concept of travel in the 'Fourth Dimension' and speculates about the ultimate decay of the human species. The world of the effete Eloi and ape-like Morlocks, the age of giant crabs, and the final portrayal of the heat-death of the sun constitute an unforgettable vision of the future. The Time Traveller's narrow escape from the remote descendants of humanity is paralleled by Edward Prendick's horrifying adventures among the Beast Folk of The Island of Doctor Moreau. Moreau, a ruthless vivisector, chooses an uninhabited Pacific island for his attempts to change animals into human beings on the operating table. Prendick soon fears that he, too, may become a victim of Moreau's experiments. Even at their most bleakly pessimistic and ironic, these stories testify to the resources of human courage and ingenuity. This edition offers authoritative texts of both novels, explanatory notes, and an introduction setting them in the context of Wells's life and thought.
