Great read!

(5 Sterne)

I throughly enjoyed this story! it truly is a classic masterpiece and should be enjoyed! I hadn't read this yet but had heard of it of course and was not disappointed by the praise for this story. I find it amazing that this was written so very long ago and yet still has some much to give! This is truly a timeless classic!

I love the way the narrator speaks. It just draws you in. Wonderful story too. The veiled commentary on society is interesting and brings a secondary, thought provoking dimension as well. However if you are interested in just listening to the story it never feels like you're bludgeoned with that metaphorical part.

Fantastic narration, fantastic introduction to audiobooks

(4,5 Sterne)

Narrated by Mark Nelson. Never have I heard a more suitable tone of voice. Gentle yet purposeful and with the knack of keeping the listener interested in the story. A fantastic introduction to audiobooks. Thank you. HG Wells and thank you Mark Nelson.

A Fantastic Fantasy

(I tried to give it 5 stars, but this app won't let me.) I love how this book gets to point and presents time travel in such a surreal way. Normally I hate all time travel stories and movies because there's endless contradictions and treat only one time period as the present but this story gives a fun twist where the time traveler is suddenly distraught from time traveling and retrospectively describes his adventure to a group that includes the narrator.

Most engaging story telling..

I never thought 3 to 4 hours straight I could just listen to some speech and do nothing. H.G.Wells proved me wrong. it was half past 1 when I started it. Thought of having lunch with my friends outside. The climate was pleasant and stomach was starving. Since my friends were not ready I started this audio book. It is 5 I guess. It is raining for almost 2 hours now... I didn't notice any thing around me. I was so immersed in the book I felt like I saw the end of the world with my own eye along with the time traveller. and the style of writing is so good that it motivated me start my blog again after years of gap. Thank you H.G.Wells where ever you are for such a good treat to my imagination. (Special note) The reader(Mark Nelson) did an excellent job of presenting this book to us...It feels exactly how it would have felt if I had read the book my self. Kudos you to sir.

I guess I'm from a totally different era. Why would the future go backwards? Well read sir, but what a stupid story. Can I have the hours of my life back? I'll even trade even up for a Snickers bar ! Never never never never never again !!! No more Me Wells period !!! Horrible horrible horrible !!! And stupid. Did I mention I didn't like it? One of those you just keep waiting for it to get better. Spoiler Alert, It Never Does !!!!!

Oddly Accurate

I listened to this before and to revisit this recording is very comforting and nostalgic. The science is unbelievable and I knew time machines were real. Everything said was a reminder of the power of knowing. Truly intelligent scientific paper hidden in fiction. The priming seemed written just for me...

Incredibly Intriguing

listened to the whole thing in less than a day...just got really pulled in and wanted to know what happened next. ended up caring about his companion more than I expected and loved the way the book spoilers but it's worth the putting in the time...punn intended haha
