    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a Victorian scientist propels himself into the year 802,701 AD, he is initially delighted to find that suffering has been replaced by beauty, contentment and peace.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.

    John Banks

    If you want the full story, read by a master of verbal pronunciation, with the ability to pull you into the plot, this is the version for you!

    Beautiful

    This is a elegant story of which has a logical pattern to it. Although short, the story is full of relevant issues that can be discussed in this day and age.

    Weake(r) reader, but he does very well.

    The slow gradual suspense that carefully builds, it demands an instant climax, but instead, the inner thoughts of the traveler unravel how the human psyche might actually respond. The end doesn't leave you wondering 'what if?' but, 'what would I do?'.

    The year this book was written

    The Time Machine is a science fiction novella by H. G. Wells, published in 1895 and written as a frame narrative. The work is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel by using a vehicle or device to travel purposely and selectively forward or backward through time.

    It's a classic for a reason.

    While some concepts are dated, it is well written and descriptive beyond most books today. Wells paints a story in your mind better than most authors today have a capacity to do. The narrator kept did well with the emotion and inflections. Very enjoyable listen.

    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

    Wonderful story, audio was a little "tinny"

    I've been a fan of the classic film, but now got to experience the source material. I highly recommend it, especially with the great performance by John Banks. However, the audio comes off sharp or "tinny," especially in the beginning, making it a bit of a chore in parts to stay glued.

    Time

    Wells created this wonderful classic called The Time machine. I found this rendition very good and free in the audible plus catalog.

    A Classic

    Amazing performance.

    H.G. Wells always wrote in such a eloquent and pleasing way, and this performance captures that feeling.

    The story itself, of course, is fantastic as well, and will keep the listener waiting to see what happens next.

    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.
