Why read: It's a sci-fi classic

What impressed me: The Time Machine was imaginative, even from a modern standpoint. It's look into the future feels plausible which is a feat given how long ago it was written.

What disappointed me: I saw the movie first and it was very different. And in my opinion, better. I just could not get into the interactions with the races, which was the bulk of the story. I found myself much more interested in how he traveled as opposed to where and when he traveled to.

Recommended: Not especially. I much prefer the movie.
