The Time Machine

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells

A Victorian scientist constructs a Time Machine. In which (I'm sure you'll be able to guess the next part) he travels 800,000 years into the future. He's astounded by the ruined state of the world around him. He encounters a slightly altered species of human, and another one - The Morlocks. These creatures live underground and only come out at night. They petrify everything and everyone.He stumbles across some obstacles on his way back to the present, which make this story unbelievably
hard to put down. The unknown just got the better of you, and you just HAD to know what happened next.
If you've by any chance seen the movie version, and assume this to be a replica of the film, then you may be disappointed.
Yes, it still has the main plots of the movie, but it just seems to lack detail.
I'm not usually one to 'judge a book by its movie', but I think that - even though it was still a captivating read, it could have used with more detail of the events that took place, and its duration possibly could have even extended a little more.
If you're into vintage, olden-day reads, then definitely have a crack at this one. But unless you're dedicated to science fiction and the idea of time travel, it's probably not the book for you.
