A great reading of a classic text. The book tells the rather dark prediction of how man, having reached his pinnacle in the Victorian age, will devolve into sub-human creatures again thousands of years from now. It made me glad I don't look to naturalistic evolution to explain man today, or the future would look very dark indeed.

Not what I expected

It is interesting to listen to this title in 2018, a book published in 1895. There are huge cultural advancements that have been made since this was written and this is almost a time machine in itself, relaying the changes that have happened in over 100 years and also the things that we still hold onto for fear of their loss. There can also be found the things of importance to the author and the people of 1895 and their fears of what would be lost in a future that continued on a cultural path deemed "not masculine enough". For it's time, the scientific portion of its portrayal of time travel still seems relatively timeless. The real jolt is between the lines, describing how far we have come as a society and how far we still have to go.

This is such a scifi classic that I have sort of been avoiding it. However...seeing that this version was narrated by Mark Nelson...I jumped right in. Absolutely no disappointment here. I loved the descriptive depths achieved and the ideas advanced for the time the book was written. Give it a few months and I will listen again....
