Product Description

"“Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life.” 
 
Where did the idea of time travelling originate? How did the idea of transcending unseen realms of universe take over popular culture?
 
An endearing story of a time traveller’s journey into the future. A pull of the lever and the machine sends him to the year 802,701, there he discovers two bizarre races—the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks—who not only symbolize the duality of human nature but show the terrifying reality of the men of tomorrow as well. Here, his machine is stolen, will he be able to get back?
 
The traveler's journey shows him a reality that is more dystopic than the present, making him realize that some questions are better left unanswered. The modern world’s fascination with time travelling can be traced back to this original story by H. G Wells, considered the father of science fiction."

About Author

H.G. Wells was born in Bromley, Kent, in 1866. After an education repeatedly interrupted by his family’s financial problems, he eventually found work as a teacher at a succession of schools, where he began to write his first stories. Wells became a prolific writer with a diverse output, of which the famous works are his science fiction novels. These are some of the earliest and most influential examples of the genre, and include classics such as The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds. Most of his books very well-received, and had a huge influence on many younger writers, including George Orwell and Isaac Asimov. Wells also wrote many popular non-fiction books, and used his writing to support the wide range of political and social causes in which he had an interest, although these became increasingly eccentric towards the end of his life. Twice-married, Wells had many affairs, including a ten-year liaison with Rebecca West that produced a son. He died in London in 1946.
