Summary

So begins the Time Traveller's astonishing firsthand account of his journey 800,000 years beyond his own era - and the story that launched H.G. Wells's successful career and earned him his reputation as the father of science fiction. With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes... and our darkest fears.
 
A pull of the Time Machine's lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth. There he discovers two bizarre races - the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks - who not only symbolize the duality of human nature, but offer a terrifying portrait of the men of tomorrow as well.
 
Published in 1895, this masterpiece of invention captivated readers on the threshold of a new century. Thanks to Wells's expert storytelling and provocative insight, "The Time Machine" will continue to enthrall readers for generations to come.
