Sacré Herbert, va. Malin tu as été de nous emmener jusqu'à l'an 800 000, et ceci afin, bien sûr, que personne ne puisse jamais te reprocher tes écarts face au réel. Ni toi, ni moi ni probablement personne, ne saura jamais si tout cela s'avère juste ou pas... mais peu importe.
Ton style est si fluide, si précis, si proche du 7ème Art qu'il est un bonheur de chaque instant.
Même les non-initiés apprécient ton récit et ton explorateur du temps qui nous ressemble tant. J'aime les Morlocks que je trouve terrifiants.
J'aime les Ellois que je trouve naïfs et innocents.
Tels des bêtes à l'abattoir, leur sort est dramatique et renforce un peu plus la crainte de ce lendemain lugubre, bien que champêtre et bucolique.
Quelles sont dangereuses et sombres tes contrées, Herbert. Merci à toi, H. G. Wells pour tout ça.

An unnamed time traveler sees the future of man (802,701 A.D.) and then the inevitable future of the world. He tells his tale in detail. Some of the details are fascinating as the traveler come to discover the secret of the results of social striation over centuries which eventually creates two separate species from humans. Which species is the more human? Can anything be done to prevent or correct this?

I grew up on the Rod Taylor /George Pal movie. When I started the book I expected it to be slightly different with a tad more complexity as with most book/movie relationships. I was surprised to find the reason for the breakup of species (Morlock and Eloi) was class Vs atomic (in later movie versions it was political). I could live with that but to find that some little pink thing replaced Yvette Mimieux was too munch.

After all the surprises we can look at the story as unique in its time, first published in 1895, yet the message is timeless. The writing and timing could not have been better. And the ending was certainly appropriate for the world that he describes. Possibly, if the story were written today the species division would be based on eugenics.

This may be old fiction but it's as fresh today as it was a century ago. I couldn't put it down. The suspense rides high in the reading. The discriptions were as detailed and as beautiful as any Hans Christian Anderson i devoured as a child. H.G.Wells writes beautifully.

J'ai choisi ce livre pour me remettre à l'anglais. Je le trouve très bien. Très bonne intrigue. Je l'ai lu avec un audio book en même temps.
Je recommande vivement.

Une histoire extraordinaire pleine de réflexions philosophiques intéressantes sur l'humanité. Très bien raconté. Passionnant. Un classique à lire et relire.

Ce livre est un des romans de science-fiction les plus intéressants de ma bibliothèque. HG Wells ne nous emmène pas seulement dans le futur grâce à sa machine mais aussi par des descriptions fabuleuses et mystérieuses qui donne à ce livre une forte dimension réaliste. Balancé entre étrangeté et merveilleux, le lecteur entre totalement dans un autre univers. On s'en délecte du début jusqu'à la dernière page.
