This was such a huge disappointment. First of all it's only 5 minutes. All of those 5 minutes are used up by reading aloud the table of contents and captions to pictures that you obviously cannot see. In addition, this is a children's book, so the captions are about 5 words in length. I received no useful information whatsoever, and I am highly disappointed that I used one of my credits for this book.
i read this book several times when i was young and mr hill brought it all back to life. mr hill has to be one of the best readers in your arsenal, he makes the book come alive with just the right quality of voice.

The Eloi have reason to be afraid. In deep tunnels beneath their paradise lurks another race descended from humanity: the sinister Morlocks.
