    A deep thought provoking book, which challenges a new generation of readers to discover their meaning, and our life.
  • Captivating!

    H.G. Wells was ahead of his time when he wrote this classic. In every chapter, he invites the reader to use his/her imagination and to visualize the facial expressions and tone of voice that the Time Traveler used when telling his story. In my childhood, my only familiarity of this classic was the film adaptation of George Pal. Reading this book was like watching a special edition of the film.
  • Still fresh after 129 years.

    This is a brilliant inception of an actual time capsule within a well scribed book.
  • An amazing book

    A lot times when I read a book I break it into pieces. Like I say I'll read 20 pages a day or 3 chapters a day, but with this book I didn't do that I read the entire book in one whole day. This book is one of the best books I have ever read and it truly is a classic. I highly recommend it to science fiction lovers like me.
  • Excellent!

    H. G. Wells at his very best. I have read this book three times in my 62 years and have enjoyed each time.

  • Loved it

    By Hxjfjf
    Well, it was an awesome read at 4:30 in the morning, and I was actually hoping to fall asleep to it, but after three pages I was pretty much hooked. I'm pretty sure anybody who reads this will love it. It was pretty freaking awesome. I'm kinda sad it ended already :(
