In reading this graphic novel for class, I couldn't get over the feeling that I was reading a comic book. I'm not sure it's right to translate classic novels into graphic format, and I'm not sure this one translated very well. I was reminded of the story I read as a child and didn't fully understand, only this time there was little left to my imagination because the images were given to me. While it wasn't bad, it seemed overly simplistic, and I enjoy too much the challenge of reading a novel an ...more
this book fits in the category of a book about survival or facing a challenge. I decided to read this book because my teacher recommended it to me. In most parts of the book i liked how it was interesting and had thrilling action. The author described the situations really well and it helped me imagine the parts well. The ending was a twist. i wasn't expecting how the time traveler would go back in time to live forever because he was in love with Weena.
I found the Morlocks in the book very anno
It was OK, but it could have been sooooo much better. There was not enough time taken with the 'real' story to make it good. We read this in half an hour, and the child I was reading it with isn't a fast reader. Too bad, but a good warning to me to really check these before I get them - I don't want to out the child off of classics, even in graphic novel form, because they aren't interesting and complete enough.

Maybe it was just me, but I really wasn't feeling this graphic novel. I haven't read the "actual book" or seen and film adaptations, so the graphic novel was my first exposure to this world's setting. Even though graphic novels don't do much describing, this book felt like it still needed a little more of it (or at least of something). I'm hoping my mind set might alter on this book after I read the "actual book".

this is about the graphic novel edition

this was a massive let down from the original h. g. wells classic. it was a brisk summary of quite a compelling books with none of the characters being portrayed as they were in the novel. it could have easily been stretched out to several installments which would have dramatically improved my enjoyment.
the book took me about 1-2 hours of pure enjoyment, i read this in about ten minutes cover to cover... i wouldn;t recommend this to anyone, for a little mo

As far as the Graphic Revolve series goes, it was ok.

Wait, wait, wait. In the graphic novel, twice it is stated that the traveler leaves 1895 and ends up 800 centuries in the future in the year 8,027,011. The description above puts them in another year entirely. Now, someone check my math, please.

8 centuries = 800 years

80 centuries = 8,000 years

800 centuries = 80,000 years

How the HELL is this guy ending up around year 8 million? Someone please help me out. Is my math wrong? Am I crazy? What hap
I guess I need to read H.G. Wells' Time Machine to get a better understanding of the graphic novel. Although, I thought that these 'classic' graphic novels were created so that teens could have a background understanding of the classics. Oh well, it was pretty good.
Yeah, so all the Eloi were drawn as little tiny people just as the original version describes... But then Weena is drawn as a tall lady with kinda big boobs. So that was weird.
This was probably one of the only mini graphic novels that left me with more questions than answers. hahaha
read for fun
