    "Classic"

    Great story! I wish it was longer! Time travel in this concept is pretty cool.

    "Poor Performance"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not time well spent. The reading was not well done. It was choppy and lacked continuity. I cannot believe that there so many words pronounced differently between American and British English.


    Would you be willing to try another book from H. G. Wells? Why or why not?

    I would if Monro is Not the reader.


    What didn’t you like about Alan Munro’s performance?

    The reading was not well done. It was choppy and lacked continuity. I cannot believe that there so many words pronounced differently between American and British English.


    Could you see The Time Machine being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It's been a movie. It does NOT need to be remade.

    "Good Book"

    Good classic science fiction. The narrator isn't great, but it was cheap. Well worth the price of admission.

    "Pitiful narration"

    "Eh..."

    I enjoyed the way the book was written, nice use of the language, but I was somewhat bored with the narrator.

    "Halting erratic speech pattern"

    Very distracting to listen to. Varied the playback rate in failed attempt to compensate. Choose another voice.

    "All fans of Classic Sci-Fi should read this story"

    Considering how long ago this book was written, it's really a great sci-fi story. The main character is the inventor of a Time Machine, and he travels 800,000 years into the future before stepping out of his machine. After this much time, the world seems very Alien to him. H.G. Wells paints a vivid picture of this strange future.

    "Speaker sucked"

    Good story. The speaker was bad and uninspiring. It made it dry and not so inspiring.

    "Great Classic"

    This is a great story to sweep you away to another time and place. Not a huge fan of the narrator, but the story was definitely worth it.

    "great food for the brain"

    narration was a little slow, and made it a little difficult at times to get into the story but the storyline was very interesting. I would recommend it for anybody who likes to listen to a good story and think about the meaning behind it, great brain food
