Présentation de l'éditeur

The Time Traveller, a dreamer obsessed with traveling through time, builds himself a time machine and, much to his surprise, travels over 800,000 years into the future. He lands in the year 802701: the world has been transformed by a society living in apparent harmony and bliss, but as the Traveler stays in the future he discovers a hidden barbaric and depraved subterranean class. Wells's transparent commentary on the capitalist society was an instant bestseller and launched the time-travel genre.
The Time Machine inspired the international bestseller The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma. As a gift to our readers, we are including the first three chapters of The Map of Time in this ebook edition.

H.G. Wells famous story The Time Machine was first published in 1885. Since that time there have been numerous stories of time travel written, but Wells story is credited with coining the term "time machine", and the entire genre of time travel related fiction can probably trace its roots to this late 19th century story.

Is it still worth reading today, almost 130 years later? I think that is is. Unlike many modern stories and novels, this is not a tale dominated by violence, conflict, and technology. In fact, the workings of the Wells time machine are essentially not explained. The story presents the experiences of a late 19th century British scientist, as he travels into the far future and then returns and relates his experiences to his friends in their parlor. His journey had taken him to a world that may have progressed to some unstated level of advancement, but has then fallen back for unknown reasons into a simple society populated by two races, both reduced to their most elemental levels (the Eloi, on the surface, living trivial and undemanding lives, and the Morlocks who live below the surface and prey at night on the harmless and defenseless Eloi).

In my rediscovery of this novel over the past couple of weeks, I did not find this to be a deep, thought provoking story. I know that the scholarly interpretations of it believe that Wells was projecting his views of unchecked capitalism into the far future, describing society that had decayed into two primitive races. You can take that view of the story and use it for the basis of some very valuable debate over the pros and cons of how, taken to an extreme, society could evolve far beyond such distinct classes of "haves" and "have-nots" as we have today. The future described by Wells is certainly quite different from what most of us today might expect. Most visions of future society, and much of the science fiction that I have read, includes elaborate advancements in technology which lead to both good and bad results in the lives of those in the future. This story is a very interesting contrast to those views, and it is an interesting view into the thought process of an 18th century educated man, as he tries to make sense of a future world that at first glance does not fit his models of how a society should function.

Like other works by Wells (The War of the Worlds, for example), the main character in the story is unnamed. Also like other stories by Wells, and unlike many works written during this same time period, the style of writing is easy for us to read and understand today. It is written in a very conversational manner and would be suitable reading for elementary school level readers and above. This is a short novel, approximately 100 pages or so in printed form.

The version that I read was the Kindle version from Atria books, published by Simon & Schuster. It is a very satisfactory edition and presently available at no cost from the Kindle store.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best I've read 17 juin 2014

I love science fiction, I've read the great writers of the genre; somehow I had missed H.G. Wells.
I love the movie (that is, 1960 version) and thought the novel would be a nice addition.

I was completely blown away by the novel, it is intelligent, daring, has a swift pace, it is much much better than the movie (the ending is not so corny, for example) and expands very nicely on the main character's travels in time.

I would recommend this book to any science fiction enthusiast, even if it over 100 years old, it is still every bit as interesting as in 1895.

Really makes you think of the possibilities of time travel as well as the dangers and benefits that accompanies such.

Well thought out and written beautifully. Thank you for taking me along for that adventure, and perhaps if the time traveler ever returns, I would only hope to revel in the stories of his adventures.

I have read and reread this book so many times. H.G. Wells is a amazing author with the ability to bring you into a story. This and many of his others have a permanent place in my e-readers and bookshelves. I love this because I can look and see how close and view the potential of how far off we are from where he thought,

A man excited about his newest invention, a time machine, decides to tell his friends and show them a quick demonstration. The guests don't believe the man, but when they see the small model of the time machine disappear in front of their eyes, they are in awe. They don't necessarily believe it has traveled through time though and think the man has performed a trick. The man, not to be discouraged, sees them off for the night and continues on with his plans.

The guests are invited back a week later, only to be left without a host. It seems the man has not arrived at his own party yet. The guests seat themselves and begin to dine when they are interrupted by their host. He seems to be in a tizzy and disheveled. He apologizes, but gets cleaned up and eats before he regales his guests with his story.

The time traveler has been gone for days and has traveled over many thousands of years through time to the year 802,701. There he met the Eloi, an innocent and peaceful people. They are childlike in nature and seem to have no worries. They have little language and do not appear to toil with work. They eat fruit from the land, spend their days languishing in the sun and the river, and spend their nights sleeping indoors, huddled together. The time traveler believes this to be the only living species on Earth, until he does some more investigating. He soon discovers another race of being, the Morlocks. They are underground dwelling creatures and are sensitive to the light. They work machinery and have a bit more intelligence than the Eloi. They have also discovered what it takes to stay alive when the food supply runs short. The time traveler must work to find a way to get back to the present day, which is easier said than done.

This was a fun read. I love time travel novels and this is one of the best known. It was groundbreaking for its time. I can't imagine how ill-equipped the time traveler was to undertake such a journey. I would have loved a lengthier novel with more interaction with the Eloi and the Morlocks. However, for a short novel, it was perfect for what it was. Definitely a classic and I'm glad I finally read it.
