The Time Machine

Written by: H.G. Wells

Reviewed by: Raymond Tu

 Recommended Audience: High School –  Adults

         From the author that brought you The Invisible Man and War of the Worlds now bring you The Time Machine. The book in particular loosely specifies names, and will instantly pull you in just like someone telling you a story in person. The book is of course, about a time machine and “The Time Traveler” and how he travels to 802,701 A.D. The Time Traveler also finds that instead of society being drastically advanced in intellect and technology, instead has slumped back in a primitive, strange world. Both occupied above ground by beautiful creatures, and underground, by even stranger creatures.

         Continuing on with the Time Traveler’s story, he first is afraid of the beautiful creatures, but he then understands them, learns their language, and finds that they’re completely harmless. However in the midst of celebrating with them, his time machine is taken. Not by the Eloi, the beautiful creatures, but the Morlocks. The creatures below the surface. He continues on his adventure exploring the future, and finding a way to get his time machine back, and discovering unpleasant facts along the way.

        The Time Machine is a great novel for teens and older, and is a classic story held upon the tests of time. When you begin to read, you’ll find that this is a simply thrilling and gripping novel as the events unfold similar how to the people react to the Time Traveler’s story. The story is simply based on how the Time Traveler explores the future, and finding how he can solve problems, such as the Morlock attacks and how he can get his time machine back from underground where the Morlocks have taken it.
