The Time Machine is the fascinating oral diary of the Time Traveler-the first man to journey beyond the conventional limits of time. As the first of H.G. Wells' visionary novels, it created the science fiction genre by giving us a tantalizing glimpse at the future. When the Time Traveler crash-lands in the year 802,701, he is surrounded by lush landscapes and a small, gentle people named Eloi. Amazed by their apparent bliss, he wishes to bring their secrets back to his troubled time. As the sun sets, however, all harmony is shattered when the time machine disappears and the fearsome Morlocks stalk the cowering Eloi. Masterfully narrated by Simon Prebble, this astonishing odyssey into the distant future will thrill young and adult listeners alike. H.G. Wells is the author of many timeless and unforgettable science fiction classics, including The Invisible Man, i.The Island of Dr. Moreau and The War of the Worlds.

"Simon Prebble is the ideal narrator for one of the first science-fiction novels ever written. He captures the atmosphere as well as the accents and personalities of the men to whom the Time Traveler--he has no other name--shares his astonishing story of a time machine that takes him more than 800,000 years into the future. Listeners will feel that theyÕre with the Time Traveler as Prebble describes a future England and the bizarre people he encounters. PrebbleÕs pacing and conversational style are just what's needed for this amazing saga. Audio makes the incredible story seem almost real. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
