Description of this Book

The sciencefiction genre has a lot to attribute to H.G. Wells: his novel, The Time Machine, inspired by Swift's classic tale, Gulliver's Travels, is the first piece of literature to deal with the concept of time travel. Today, there are countless films, television shows, and of course, novels, whose origins are founded in this exciting piece of fiction. The Time Machine is the first of Wells' four most famous sciencefiction novels. The story revolves around the Time Traveller, who has created a machine that allows him to visit and see what is to come in the future. A group of men watch him climb into the machine and seemingly disappear into thin air. One week later, they reconvene to hear the Time Traveller regale them with tales of his adventures through past ages and ages to come. He explains how he expected the future to provide a better world, but was instead confronted with a bleak reality. The future is shows no signs that progress was every made and seems devoid of hope. A great portion of the story takes place in a futuristic dystopian land filled with peaceful humanlike beings called Eloi. They live in constant fear of beastlike creatures called Morlocks. The Traveller makes further trips through time where he sees strange and horrifying sights. In The Time Machine, Wells makes blatant scientific and political critiques while he writes a riveting tale of science fiction. The Time Machine has been adapted into several films; a recent version stars Guy Pierce as the Time Traveller. First published in 1895, The Time Machine helped spur an important genre of literature.
