Publisher's Summary

At a dinner party in Richmond, the host tells an astonishing story of his travels into the future, where, at first, it seems that man has moved on to a higher plane of existence - suffering and war seem to have been eliminated. But in fact there are two races living on the Earth: the Eloi, a leisured, decadent, androgynous group; and the Morlocks, an underground tribe of bestial workers. When his time machine is stolen, the traveller is stranded in this strange new world and discovers that the truth about it is far darker than he could imagine....

One of the greatest science-fiction stories ever written, The Time Machine is an adventure story, a social commentary, and a dark warning of the dangers facing humanity.

An excellent story, skillfully narrated.

H.G. Wells' masterpiece, a story of awesome imagination. Roger May's narration truly makes it live. Highly recommended.

Excellent

I mostly use audio books to help me sleep. This combination of story and narrator was so good I kept having to extend the set time on the sleep timer. Really good. Would highly recommend.

An interesting tale,

The fact that this story was written in the 19th century, is absolutely astonishing. It is not just the thought of traveling in time and "experiencing a lot of cool stuff", even though it's rather short, it digs deep into the thoughts of how society works today, and how it is going to evolve. And at the same time it tells a good story that any non-time-travelling world explorer must've experienced as well.

The voice for this audiobook is almost perfect. It is very "old", and even though I couldn't possibly know exactly how they spoke back then, it feels very authentic and real.
