all in all, the production of this book felt very amateur. Disappointed!
Every book that I have listened too up to now I have found something to enjoy even if the story was not great. I could have made something just as good as this audio book, myself using a tape recorder!

I'm very familiar with this story so was glad to see it available as an audio book. The story is told well for the most part. However it's rather spoilt by the narrator. HG Wells is an English writer, and the portrayal of the time traveller's voice is exactly as you'd expect it to be. Shane Sody in his own voice however (adding the incidentals between the time traveller's dialogues) is in a startling Australian accent. Furthermore, there are regular sound effects added to the story which comes somewhere between adding-null-value and being-a-distraction to the performance. I'm sure this is a reflection of Shane's primary profession as a radio host.
Get passed the oddities in the narration and the book is the classic that you'd expect it to be
