I drew a breath, set my teeth, gripped the starting lever with both hands, and went off with a thud. The time traveler is on his way to a different world-his world 800,000 years in the future. He returns and recounts his journey to his friends at a dinner party.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine The time machine has been an icon of popular imagination for decades, but H.G. Wells's original novella inspired them all. This version is worth a listen for two good reasons: Scott Brick's impassioned performance and the clarity of Wells's writing. The author's nightmarish vision of a devolved future 80,000 years hence, delivered over cigars and brandy in a proper British drawing room, charms and fascinates. Naturally, his guests, like proper Brits of the age, hemmed and hawed, and doubted. Although hoary and pretentious, The Time Machine addresses our insatiable need to know what lies in store and our terrible fear that it may be worse than we'd even imagined. D.J.B.
