Publisher's Summary

"I drew a breath, set my teeth, gripped the starting lever with both hands, and went off with a thud." The time traveler is on his way to a different world -- his world, but 800,000 years in the future. He returns and recounts his journey to his friends at a dinner party.In the future, humans called the Eloi live in simple luxury. They have become beautiful but meek, living on their safe, comfortable planet. The generations that have passed without challenge or adversity have dulled their minds. Underground machinery, built millennia ago, feeds and clothes these innocent creatures, and still functions perfectly. But who runs the machinery, and why are the Eloi afraid of the night?

Epic Story

H.G. Wells' famous story of the time machine, amazed that I've not read it until now. Listening is a transition as I go back to 19th century english, but fun. Scott Brick did a good job reading. Now, I'll search for the movies and compare them to the book, like everyone.

Classic Sci Fi

Brilliant writing of course, plus great narration by Scott Brick. Strips away the hollywood version (which I also enjoy) with more imagination.
