Alas this is a fine work from a writer of bygone times and if he could only discover his vision and writings of Time Travel were in fact prophecies and became true. As I have indeed traveled to 802,701AD and meet the lovely Weena a female Eloi and the dreadful Morlocks. The Time Machine ...more
And When he had concluded his tale of the little people, his fear of the underground and the dark nights, he was greatly disappointed of his inability to convince his esteemed colleagues of its validity.
And Then......the ending......uh oh......not what I was expecting.
A Victorian-era scientist reveals that he has created a time machine and goes on to relate his harrowing adventures into the future, where he meets a race apparently so advanced they've stop doing anything, as well as a monster race of subterranean dwelle ...more

It starts as an almost casual chat by the fireside about the possibility of traveling through the fourth dimension and the invention of a machine, oddly described much like a common bicycle, that can trave ...more
“Any real body must have extension in four directions: it must have Length, Breadth, Thickness, and—Duration. But through a natural infirmity of the flesh, which I will explain to you in a moment, we incline to overlook this fact. There are really four dimensions, three which we call the three planes of Space, and a fourth, Time. There is, however, a tendency to draw an unreal distinction between the former three dimensions and the latter, because it happens that our consciousness moves intermi...more
What a classic, wonderfully imaginative science fiction sentence.
I had read H.G. Wells' The Time Machine many years ago. I remembered enjoying it, and thinking there were some creepy elements to the story. And since that was all I remembered, I decided I needed to revisit this. I'm on a mission to read or reread classic science fiction and horror writers, so I used that as an excuse to bump The T ...more
That's not to say that someone wouldn't or couldn't have come along and filled a gap had H.G. Wells not written this. But would it have been as popular and caught fire with the imagination of the reading public if had been something or someone else. Maybe not.
What I'm trying to say is that sci-fi fans owe an enormous debt of gratitude to Wells for this story. Not only was it hugly influential, but it's ...more

As always, there is little to say when coming late to a classic, except this: I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to read H. G. Wells!
It feels a bit embarrassing. I went on a smallish time travel reading marathon near the end of last year, but I somehow managed to skip over The Time Machine, the grand-daddy of all modern machine-based time travel stories. Perhaps I didn’t think it was necessary because I already knew the story; I watched the Wishbone version when I was a kid, an ...more
به نظرم اصلی ترین نکتۀ این داستان این بود که تنها جانداری که میتونه خودش رو نسبت به شرایطِ محیطِ پیرامونش وقف بده، « انسان» هستش... چون در صفحۀ 38، میگه: مردم آیندۀ دور گیاهخوار بودن و اسب و گوسفند و سگ، مانندِ خزنده ها نسلشون منقرض شده

H.G. Wells, also one of the most important writers who write in this field
About the novel I think it's a Marxist vision for the distant future ! ..
And it's not impossible any way ! :). .
I also sympathized with the heroes ... ,
In general it is a very rich novel..
Enjoyed reading :)
“Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life.”
I came to enjoy this more than I first thought I would. If, like me, you're turned off by long paragraphs dealing with the mathematics of time travel and dimensions, then grit your teeth and push through the first chapter of The Time Machine. When I was reading the opening pages and stopping to google scientific terms in nearly every sentence, I couldn't imagine I'd find a way to finish the book ...more

The Time Machine (1895) is one of H.G. Wells’ most visionary and influential novels. It introduced the concept of time travel to a large readership, one of the most often-used conceits in SF.
