pubOne.info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. The Time Traveller (for so it will be convenient to speak of him) was expounding a recondite matter to us. His grey eyes shone and twinkled, and his usually pale face was flushed and animated. The fire burned brightly, and the soft radiance of the incandescent lights in the lilies of silver caught the bubbles that flashed and passed in our glasses. Our chairs, being his patents, embraced and caressed us rather than

If you have a brain, this book is for you. This book is a amazing piece of literature, and I had no idea before reading it that its actually so short. Its not even 200 pages! But its still one amazing book. H.G. Wells was one amazing writer, to be able to compile so much thought into so few words. Again, if you have a brain, you will realize as you read it that it contains a critiscism on society and a moral lesson as well as providing a entertaining story. If you fell asleep while reading this, then that part of your brain that handles thought was obviously on strike.

The reason I chose this book to read, is because I had just finished reading "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card and I was still craving some science fiction. My teacher handed us a list of Honors books that we should be reading and I saw "The Time Machine". I decided to read it and I loved it! I read it everywhere I went! Some of my teachers even had to take it away so I could focus in class! Some reasons I recommend this book to you is because of its amazing ability to keep you reading, it is so interesting, I loved the detail that made me shiver, it painted a picture in my head that was amazing, and it makes your mind think differently, and lastly, the story line is just great. If you liked the "Ender" series, then you will love this book! It will keep you reading, and you will love it!

When you hear someone is called the Father of Science Fiction, you expect his works to be more fatherly and less science fictiony. However, Well's "The Time Machine" is an innovative and intelligent visualization of what the distant future may still hold true for the human race.

This book was one of the best books ive ever red. I realy enjoyed how H.G Wells kept you intersted in the whole book by telling tou something and telling you he will explain later. You will never expect how well he explains the simple things and makes them outstanding. He does a lot of show not tells. The characters he makes up is just phonominal, and how he desribes how they look. I hope you enjoy this book as much as i did.

Usually I am not interested in bokks but i had to do an adventure book for a book report of mine and i picked this book. At first it seemed like a regular sci fi book but it turned out to be a suspensful story. I think that readers, young and old, should read this book.

When I started reading The Time Machine, I couldn't put it down, not even for meals. I finishing it in a day and a half. It's a fascinating look at how we might evolve in the far future. A very enjoyable read. After reading The Time Machine, I had a feeling H.G. Wells wouldn't disappoint me with The Invisble Man. This chilling tale follows a young scientist gone mad when he discovers a way to become invisible. Unfortunutely, there is no turining back. This story was just as well written as The Time Machine. It took me only two days to read. I highly recommend getting this set of two instead of one or the other. Once you are captured, you will be eager to read more of his work.

H.G. Wells' Time Machine is the definition of a true Science Fiction novel. He uses many literary tools to convey the story of a young scientist who travels to the year 802,701 A.D. He finds that the human race (the eloi) has been made slaves of the mutant morlocks. His journey descibes a future world that has suffered from years of war. In the future, the scientist loses his time machine and has no way of returning to 1900(the year is not specifically mentioned). Will he ever return? He has all the time in world.
