Publisher's Summary

A scientist and gentleman inventor in industrialized Victorian England claims to have irrefutable proof that time is not simply a concept - it's a whole other dimension. When he reveals the prototype of a time-traveling machine to his peers, he's met with skepticism at first...until he returns one week later, disheveled, bloody, and with a fantastic story to tell.
A cornerstone of speculative science fiction, The Time Machine launched the time-traveling genre, influenced generations of writers, and is recognized as a prescient vision of twenty-first-century fears - those of an impending environmental nightmare and the irreversible fate of a dying planet.
AmazonClassics brings you timeless works from the masters of storytelling. Ideal for anyone who wants to listen to a great work for the first time or rediscover an old favorite, these new editions open the door to literature's most unforgettable characters and beloved worlds.
Revised edition: Previously published as The Time Machine, this edition of The Time Machine (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

A perfect combo for narrator and story

I've heard Simon Vance in another audiobook and I couldn't tell if it was the story or the narrators delivery. turns out it was the story because this performance of The Time Machine was really enjoyable with this narrator.

Great performance, but way too boring story.

I know it is classics, but still almost forced myself to the end. Great performance of Mr Vance helped indeed. Wonderful language, brilliantly delivered. But still very boring.
