It took me several years to finally get around to reading an H. G. Wells novel, after dealing with numerous people all telling me, "Hey, this guy is great, you should read his stuff."

I decided I would try The Time Machine as an introduction to Wells' works, and it left me with a poor taste in my mouth. I could only make it about twenty pages in before I had to discard the whole thing, it being an absolute nightmare to read. The subject matter wasn't complex or difficult to understand, but the flow of the writing made me think of the several high school papers I have edited in the past. That is, someone had a bit too much time with their thesaurus and decided to go crazy with it in an attempt to seem sophisticated and intelligent.

The ideas that Wells puts forth in his novels seem sound and creative, but the execution is lacking in my opinion. Perhaps The Time Machine was a poor introduction, and I imagine I will give another novel a try once the bad taste wears off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing March 20 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Absolutely amazing. I had taken to reading t shortly after finishing George orwell's Animal farm, and what a read. The settings are illustrated on level with Edgar Allen Poe's into the maelstrom, and the concepts of futures and possibilities that lie within the pages have a way of drawing you far from anything else you can do. As an avid gamer this pulled me away from games for the last week well I read it everywhere I went, moments without the ability to continue reading it were spent theorizing it's next turns and future plot. 100/10 worth not studying for finals for!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful cadence and thoughtfully told... March 16 2015
By J. Teal
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first book I had read by H.G. Wells and I was surprised by how smooth and engaging the storytelling is. Beautiful cadence and thoughtfully told. Unlike any other sci-fi I've read. From this book, I've also read a handful of his short stories. Even for those of us who aren't completely sold on the genre, this classic grips and pulls a reader into the traveller's world. Awe-inspiring. Truly a great work of literature.
