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!

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
What a story!
I watched the old film as a child and did not recall it really. Just that it was frightening. Well now I know why I thought so - because it is true! I liked the narrater a lot. Thank you!
In short, I liked the book. A bunch of interesting concepts of life in the future, however, the old fashioned story was rather tiresome. If ya could get past the fact that this story was based in the late 1800s, it is cool little distraction.
Though the book was really great, I love H G. Wells, the reader of it doesn't really capture what I would think should be for the book. Not very expressive and seemed to be slow to read, like he was disinterested.
I really enjoyed listening to this on a long drive recently. It is fairly short, so I wasable to listen to the whole book driving from nc to va. This book works really well as an audio book because the book is a character telling a story, so you don't have to worry about character voices throwing you off.
Short and fun, this is a must read for SciFi enthusiasts as it introduced the idea of mechanized time travel (where would scifi be now without hg wells!). You have to read and appreciate this book in the context of its time, otherwise it may come off as dull and weird. I think listening to it helped me stay interested. This book explores concepts of class structure and de-evolution.
Classic sci-fi at its best. Brings the imagination to life. The narrator was very deep-voiced at times, so much so, that I was forced to reduce the bass tones on whichever speakers I was listening through. A fun listen, all-in-all.
