Description

When a Victorian scientist propels himself into the year 802,701 AD, he is initially delighted to find that suffering has been replaced by beauty, contentment and peace. Entranced at first by the Eloi, an elfin species descended from man, he soon realises that this beautiful people are simply remnants of a once-great culture - now weak and childishly afraid of the dark. But they have every reason to be afraid: in deep tunnels beneath their paradise lurks another race descended from humanity - the sinister Morlocks. And when the scientist's time machine vanishes, it becomes clear he must search these tunnels, if he is ever to return to his own era.

Top 10

A wonderful book, in the same class as Gulliver’s Travels. It is one of the books I would like to take with me to Purgatory. - Sir Winston S. Churchill

A Wonderful Journey

Excellent narrative performed artfully by John Banks. A very enjoyable, if all too short, novel told on a fantastic scale.

Great Scifi story! Still relevant

Although it is over a hundred years old, it still reads (listens) as a book that could have been written yesterday. Truly a great book.

Great Narration! Lacking strong plot.

The narration was great and keep my attention throughout. The writing was also well done. However, the plot seemed underdeveloped and ended more abruptly than I prefer.

Classic Awesomeness!

So to say HG Wells is before my time is an understatement, but this book proves why it was the first. Engaging and well written, great story, even though I have seen both movie versions and countless other time stories. Coupled with a great reader makes a great combination.

Zukunft der Menschheit

Mir hat das Buch und der Leser sehr gut gefallen. Ich finde es immer wieder interessant Bücher zu lesen hören denen man eindeutig anmerkt dass sie nicht aus der Gegenwartsliteratur kommen. Mir geht es mit Asimov so und auch mit diesem Titel. Der Stil dieser Literatur ist für mich jetzt mit einem Wort beschrieben platonischer. Das Grundkonzept dieses Buch mit den einleitenden Gedanken über Raum und Zeit und die Entwicklung der Menschheit in diese 2 Klassen nachdem zuvor die Menschheit ihren Höhepunkt erlebt hat, ist herausragend.
