The Time Machine (Paperback)
The Time Machine is an account of a Time Traveler, an unnamed Victorian scientist who travels into the future, to the year 802701 and the story that launched H.G. Wells's successful career. With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes and our darkest fears. A pull of the Time Machine's lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth. There he discovers two bizarre races - the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks -who not only symbolize the duality of human nature, but offer a terrifying portrait of the men of tomorrow as well. The novel is considered one of the earliest works of Science Fiction, it has since been adapted into many feature films and television series and has inspired many more works of fiction.
