The guy goes more than 6,000 years into the future and there's no hoverboard...lame.

Yet another audiobook collection of short stories, which I'll rate individually:

The Time Machine (1895) - Everyone knows the gist of the story, but not everyone has read it and know that 1. the narrator first sees the Eloi society as an example of extreme communism, 2. assumes initially that the Morlocks are at the mercy of the Eloi, not the other way around and 3. sees the seeds to the eventual genetic split in today's social segregation. Not just a sci-fi story, but one with a bit of social co...more

H.G.Wells es, sin duda, un pionero en la literatura de viajes en el tiempo. Es una historia muy amena e interesante de leer. Me ha parecido muy interesante su visión del futuro de la Tierra y la raza humana, supongo que basándose en la sociedad en la que él vivió.
Jose Miguel Gonzalez
La Máquina del Tiempo, genial. La idea del viaje en el tiempo descrita con por un autor del siglo XVIII es increible.

Otros Relatos (y mi puntuación del 1 al 5):
El imperio de las hormigas 2
Una visión del Juicio Final 1
Los acorazados terrestres 4
El traje maravilloso 1
La puerta en el muro 2
La Perla del Amor 2
El país de los Ciegos 4
La historia principal resulta curiosa y te mantiene interesado en lo que el protagonista va encontrando y cómo reacciona ante los problemas que le van surgiendo. Merece la pena, sin duda.
Con respecto a los relatos sueltos, los hay desde cuentos de hadas, a uno que me apreció aburrido, otro inquietante y otros con tinte onírico.
playaway quality is shite but excellent narration and included the short stories:

The Purple Pileus
The Door in the Wall
Æpyornis Island
The Diamond Maker
The Flowering of the Strange Orchid
The Man Who Could Work Miracles
The Truth About Pyecraft
The Country of the Blind
I guess I had expected something more, but I did like the story and although the characters did not feel truly alive and there wasn't much of a plot behind how and why the Time Machine was built (which the movie tried to address).
I did NOT enjoy this book even in the least. My boyfriend gave it to me to read, mostly because it's a classic and whatnot. I think I'm too set in my ways and and I don't like older literature? At least I finished it, right?

im actually just reading the time machine... no others by h.g. wells but good reads didnt have that one available to post. maybe if i like this one i'll read others though.
They said he couldn't do it and he did. Do you think time travel is possible? I don't think there will be any living things (as we know them) left in 780,000 years.

In 1866, (Herbert George) H.G. Wells was born to a working class family in Kent, England. Young Wells received a spotty education, interrupted by several illnesses and family difficulties, and became a draper's apprentice as a teenager. The headmaster of Midhurst Grammar School, where he had spent a year, arranged for him to return as an "usher," or student teacher. Wells earned a government schol...more
