Great story. Wells is so underrated.
A slim little volume, handy for slipping into your bag and reading on the go.
A classic HG Wells piece. Read it now!
A little thick with the social allegory, but an entertaining read.
Great book where H.G. Wells constructs a time machine and relates his adventures in the past and future.

The Morlocks terrorize the Eloi, hunt the Time Traveler, and capture the Time Machine.Can the Time Traveler escape the future with his Time Machine...and his life?
This popular classic comes with beautiful illustrations and a note about the author on the last page.
Treasury of Illustrated Classics
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!
classic book, daughter read for class work
"A world divided into ELOI--gentle, helpless surface dwellers who live to nibble sweet fruits and play silly games; and MORLOCKS--gruesome monsters who only leave their vast underground machines to terrorize the night...The Traveller first believes the Eloi rule the Morlocks; then he suspects the Morlocks command; until an awful discovery leads to the hideous truth:
The man from the past is the only human on Earth--And the real horror of the far future is just beginning...
always the one and only H.G. Wells. needs no further introduction.
A good book in a really durable permabound cover, so it lasts forever.
This book is very similiar in style to the Great Illustrated Classics books for children.
My favorite by H.G. Wells
This is a classic of early science fiction. There are as many implications of commentary about society as there are pure SF elements.
