2015 Reading Challenge Update: A book set in the future (36th)


“Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no need of change.” – H. G. Wells

A book set in the future (36th) – The Time Machine by H.G. Wells

The Time Machine

“I’ve had a most amazing time….”

So begins the Time Traveller’s astonishing firsthand account of his journey 800,000 years beyond his own era—and the story that launched H.G. Wells’s successful career and earned him his reputation as the father of science fiction. 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.


Sorry. But I don’t like it.

  1. I loved the idea in this book, but I admit Well has a specific way of writing and it didn’t get to me. I finished it on audiobook as it seemed easier at the moment. All in all I think it was OK, but it would be much better with somewhat more involving writing. This one was rather like an article. A long one.

    1. Yes. That’s true. I will not write a review anymore because I don’t think I have the right to do so. This is a well-acclaimed book but it just doesn’t appeal to me. 🙂

      Thank you for reading my post! 🙂
