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!

The story itself is fantastic: a true classic.
The narrator... went... to... the... Captain Kirk school... of... speaking.
I almost couldn't finish listening to the story because of the narrator. I will be avoiding anything read by him in the future.
I'm having a bromance with coffee!
Prelude to Sci-fi!
I might compare this to Journey to the The Lost World. The time period of this style writing is similar.
The narration was o.k. I've heard better. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either.
Great short story to include into your library. Definitely worth the listen!
The book is amazing and provides an awesome look at what the future might hold.
No, his rendition was horrible...
I almost fell asleep listening to this one. It is a good thing I was not driving. I love H.G. Wells what a shame.
Good story, but don't expect a fun, action packed read. Take a ride to the future, where we see the inevitable outcome of our "modern" political society. Interesting..
The book was made into a movie that was pretty entertaining. Be warned though; the movie took out the political criticisms that made up most of the book, and made it a completely different story.
Yes to Wells. Probably not to Munro.
Using a different narrator.
This has already been done
The Time Machine is an interesting story. To appreciate it, I think one must consider the time in which it was written. My problem is with the Audible narration. Munro's cadence makes it almost unbearable to listen to. Not at all what I would expect from a Professional Narration. Perhaps this was a one-time problem. If the price for the narration would have been more than one dollar, I would definitely request a refund.
An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
No, but it's definitely better than the movie version with Rod Taylor and Yvette Mimieux. It's much more a view of elitism and workers and the evolution of two separate species of man because of that.
When the Time Traveler figures out that his initial views are wrong about the Eloi and the Underground apes. Mr. Wells was quite a socialist in his views of right and wrong. I enjoyed his take on what the future could hold for us all.
I can do my housework while I listen. I love all audible books because of that fact.
Time enough, or time will tell.
This book was an excellent bargain at $.49 on audible. It's a quick listen and a classic story. What else could you ask for?
Odd pauses. Almost like he treats the end of the printed line like the end of a sentence. I like his voice, but not the odd pauses.
Vigilante, Out-of-control Conciousness, white knuckling the steering wheel of this Meat Vehicle I am strapped into.
I would try anything by HG Wells, the man is a master wordsmith.
I Will avoid Munro like a plague
No it has not.
No way. This reading was horrendous. Weird cadence, a voice that could kill kittens. It was painful.
The book is incredible, I have read a physical copy, but Munro, he ruined it.
No - The narrator destroyed it for me. He apparently went to the William Shantner School for Nonsensical Pauses. I eventually just quit listening.
