Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the intrepid Time Traveller finds himself in the year 802,701, he encounters a seemingly utopian society of evolved human beings but then unearths the dark secret that sets mankind on course toward its inevitable destruction. An insightful look into a distant, bleak, and disturbing future, The Time Machine goes beyond the reaches of science fiction to provide a strikingly relevant discussion of social progress, class struggle, and the human condition.

Hailed as a masterpiece of its genre, H. G. Wellss famous novella about the perils of history and the hubris of modernity comes vividly alive in this remarkable reissue of a unique 1931 illustrated edition.

Synopsis:

Heralded as a masterpiece of science fiction, H. G. Wells's famous novel comes vividly alive in this trade paperback reissue of a unique 1931 edition, which includes a preface written by the author himself, illustrations throughout, and a reading group guide.
