Beautiful book by HG Wells.. Time Traveler story. Reading a classic story when you are young opens your heart. Reading a classic story again-- anew-- when you are older fills your heart to the brim.

This is one of the best classical works! H. G. Wells has a wonderful way of telling stories. This book is a fast read based on science of the future and where that can, or will, lead human-kind. Which branch of fellow man will you choose? Will you go with the fun, carefree and loving Eloi, or will you become a cannibalistic creature of the dark like the Morelocks? Just a fantastic read!
This popular classic comes with beautiful illustrations and a note about the author on the last page.
