Description of this Book

At a dinner party in Richmond, the host tells an astonishing story of his travels into the future. At first it seems that man has moved on to a higher plane of existence-suffering and war seem to have been eliminated. But in fact there are two races living on the Earth-the Eloi, a leisured, decadent, androgynous group; and the Morlocks, an underground tribe of bestial workers. When his time machine is stolen, the traveler is stranded in this strange new world and discovers that the truth is far darker than he could imagine. One of the greatest science fiction stories ever written, The Time Machine is an adventure story, a social commentary, and a dark warning of the dangers facing humanity.

Author's Bio

H. G. Wells (1866-1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900-1920) were more realistic and covered lower-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society. Roger May has performed in more than eighty radio plays and spent a year with the BBC Radio Drama Company in 1995-1996, following that with a season at the Royal Shakespeare Company. He has made several television appearances on shows like Mosley, Peak Practice, and Hornblower.
