  • Description

    The Time Traveller, a dreamer obsessed with traveling through time, builds himself a time machine and, much to his surprise, travels over 800,000 years into the future. He lands in the year 802701: the world has been transformed by a society living in apparent harmony and bliss, but as the Traveler stays in the future he discovers a hidden barbaric and depraved subterranean class. Wells's transparent commentary on the capitalist society was an instant bestseller and launched the time-travel genre.
     
    The Time Machine inspired the international bestseller The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma. As a gift to our readers, we are including the first three chapters of The Map of Time in this ebook edition.

      To go forward in time to make things better for humanity it would be worth it. I sometimes sit and wonder myself how can I bring peace and make the world a better place...

      This one of my favorite books I ever read when I was teenager in 6th grade then Mr Ruscavage introduced me and my classmates to 1960s film based on that book which produced by george pals that movie is much better than that 2002 time machine reboot was.

      Wells takes the concept of time travel and runs with it full speed ahead, or should that be behind? This is still the best time travel story ever written.

      Short and sweet. It's a quick read that leaves you feeling very satisfied. Wells was a master storyteller.

      Enthralling. The Time Traveler's telling of his adventure gave me vivid imagery and a light sense of wonder and amazement. I only wish the ending didn't just drop like it did.

      Very short and sweet. It would be worthy of 4-5 stars if the author went more wild with his story line. I liked the idea and the details of his idea but I found myself disappointed with the quick ending. It wasn't as much of a cliff hanger as it was a "this had much more potential".
    • Good book

      For crying in the night! That's it? The adventure ends and every bit of mystery remains a secret! At the height of intrigue, the story halts so abruptly my head is still spinning. I will not say it comes to an end because plainly there are chapters upon chapters more to be told! Where is the end? Where are the missing pages between the point where my eyes ran out of words and that sense of closure? This is a glorious job of storytelling! A book teeming with creativity! I want more! Yes, the intent of Mr. Wells' work may have been to prove the folly of a class system that separates and oppresses. He points out in horrific fashion how the tables can drastically turn. And I grasp the message that trials and hardships do indeed compel the human race to seek greater knowledge, while total tranquility lends to stagnant lives and stupidity. Those points are made in the first excursion, but could not the story have continued with the same entrancing force simply for the sake of entertainment? I'm left wanting to such a degree that I nearly hate the book as much as I love it!!!
