The Time Machine (Annotated Keynote Classics)
Publisher: Keynote Classics
"For an indefinite time I clung to the machine as it swayed and vibrated, quite unheeding how I went, and when I brought myself to look at the dials again I was amazed to find where I had arrived."
Embark on a journey hundreds of thousands of years into the future on a homemade time machine! The Time Traveler discovers what he first perceives as a perfect pastoral landscape inhabited by an evolved form of humanity, but soon he discovers the dark depths of a society gone awry. His own future is far from certain as he finds himself in a world of planetary devastation from which he may never escape. This engaging adventure offers a view of the distant future built on the technological and cultural innovations of the 1800s, yet its perspective still resonates with modern readers.
