Synopses & Reviews
At a dinner party one night, a man known only as the Time Traveller attempts to demonstrate the workings of his time machine device to his incredulous friends. He embarks upon an epic voyage, careering forward 802,701 years into the future only to discover that the world's population has split into an indolent race called the Eloi and a cantankerous, violent race called the Morlocks. This chillingly prescient novel offers a dystopian worldview and a scathing indictment of mankind's incessant pursuit of progress. The novel was an instant sensation, which popularised the concept of time travel and inspired many more works on the same theme.
