Description

When a Victorian scientist propels himself into the year 802,701 AD, he is initially delighted to find that suffering has been replaced by beauty, contentment and peace. Entranced at first by the Eloi, an elfin species descended from man, he soon realises that this beautiful people are simply remnants of a once-great culture - now weak and childishly afraid of the dark. But they have every reason to be afraid: in deep tunnels beneath their paradise lurks another race descended from humanity - the sinister Morlocks. And when the scientist's time machine vanishes, it becomes clear he must search these tunnels, if he is ever to return to his own era.

John Banks

If you want the full story, read by a master of verbal pronunciation, with the ability to pull you into the plot, this is the version for you!

Weake(r) reader, but he does very well.

The slow gradual suspense that carefully builds, it demands an instant climax, but instead, the inner thoughts of the traveler unravel how the human psyche might actually respond. The end doesn't leave you wondering 'what if?' but, 'what would I do?'.

Top 10

A wonderful book, in the same class as Gulliver’s Travels. It is one of the books I would like to take with me to Purgatory. - Sir Winston S. Churchill

It's a classic for a reason.

While some concepts are dated, it is well written and descriptive beyond most books today. Wells paints a story in your mind better than most authors today have a capacity to do. The narrator kept did well with the emotion and inflections. Very enjoyable listen.

Must have suspension of disbelief to enjoy story

The narrator was good, but I had trouble staying in the story. It was a little too hard for me to suspend my disbelief at times.

Amazing performance.

I knew I'd like this book going into it, but the performance really blew me away. It added so much life and emotion to it, that I was captured from the moment it started! Must listen.
