The science fiction classic that coined the term "time machine" and is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel. A must listen for any fan of science fiction!

Enjoyed this immensely. The classic books are exquisite and timeless. Thank you for bringing this to Audible.
No. This is an excellent story- I returned to my kindle and enjoyed it there.
No. Initially it was the low timbre and fairly flat register which I found hard to listen to, but then all the strange pauses and disjointed phrases. I had to switch off.
Read it yourself. It's worth it. Failing that sample a few other readers to find a more workable performance.
There were times he bordered on robotic. Some of the sentences were so unnatural I had to re-listen to them.
The narrator speaks in phrases not sentences, making his complete thought hard to follow.
The plot and characters
A. Monro speaks in halting phrases, not complete sentences, making his thought hard to follow. No variation of inflection.
I did see the movie.
Skip this narrator. Spend a little more for a better story teller.
There was no name given to the "Time Traveler" and more character development "in his future quest" in the 4th dimension. H. G. Wells astonished me more than the development of "The Time Machine's" story itself. Wells was a brilliant writer of his time (excuse the pun). He coined a phrase (The Time Machine) which continues to be used today. More so, I'm thrilled and impressed by the brilliance of his imagination.
The story was fantastic. I found "the Time Traveller" frustrating as he didn't quite think things through before doing them.
The performance was difficult to listen to. The reader would pause at inappropriate times, which I felt took away from the story.
