About this Recording

WELLS, H.G.: Time Machine (The) (Unabridged)

At a dinner party in Richmond, the host tells an astonishing story of his travels into the future. At first it seems that man has moved on to a higher plane of existence—suffering and war seem to have been eliminated. But in fact there are two races living on the Earth—the Eloi, a leisured, decadent, androgynous group; and the Morlocks, an underground tribe of bestial workers. When his time machine is stolen, the traveller is stranded in this strange new world and discovers that the truth is far darker than he could imagine…One of the greatest science fiction stories ever written, The Time Machine is an adventure story, a social commentary and a dark warning of the dangers facing humanity.
