Product Description

So begins the Time Traveller’s astonishing firsthand account of his journey 800,000 years beyond his own era—and the story that launched H.G. Wells’s successful career and earned him his reputation as the father of science fiction. With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes...and our darkest fears. A pull of the Time Machine’s lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth. There he discovers two bizarre races—the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks—who not only symbolize the duality of human nature, but offer a terrifying portrait of the men of tomorrow as well. Published in 1895, this masterpiece of invention captivated readers on the threshold of a new century. Thanks to Wells’s expert storytelling and provocative insight, The Time Machine will continue to enthrall readers for generations to come.

Amazon Review

HG Wells virtually defined modern science fiction with the two tales featured in this double volume, a welcome addition to the SF Masterworks series. The Time Machine is the classic tale of a time traveller's journey to the world of 802,701 AD where humanity is divided between the bad and the beautiful, a simplistic vision at first glance but a prophetic take on a future that may not be so far removed from a reality yet to take hold, simply lurking in the shadows and waiting for the human race to bring it about by its own hand.

The War of the Worlds is perhaps one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written, a chilling, brooding tale that has lost none of its power or punch as the soulless alien invaders blast their way across the English countryside, collecting hapless humans for fiendish experiments and scorching the land. Coming at a time of great technological leaps and bounds, it is not surprising that the War of the Worlds makes as much comment on the fragility of the human race and its dependence on technology, as it does the indestructible nature of the human spirit. Though constantly beaten back, the dwindling human armies throw all the might of their warships at the alien machines with little or no effect--in the end, it is the common cold which brings about the downfall of the extra-terrestrial killers. Their motivations are never explained, nor do they need to be, their chilling cries echoing across the deserted, burning countryside of Britain accting as both a chilling war cry and a blood-curdling wake-up call. Surely, one of the most essential science fiction publications you could ever buy. --Jonathan Weir.

Wells is science fiction essential reading, so heat regardless. Though I'm pretty sure it's public domain and free anyways. Gutenberg has a copy:

Cheers OP. Great story and loved the original film and thought the Guy Pierce one was even better.
I'd read The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds, of course but I then happened on a novel called The Space Machine, by Christopher Priest. It draws on both of Wells' works and the story quite neatly bridges between them. I was quite pleasantly surprised. Its worth a look if you can find it
Thanks. Time Machine, where were you hiding when people on this forum post expired prices in fresh deal threads? I've been guilty of that myself
I need a time machine to travel forwards by 4 months. Or travel back to October and tell the CCP not to let millions of Chinese citizens to be allowed to travel abroad in Chinese New year in January despite the CCP knowing about the virus
Great Scott!
Loved the 1960 film version!
never read this, but love the George pal 1960 film. Will download

I absolutely love that movie, with Rod Taylor!

I've checked Netflix, Sky and can't see it available without paying for it.

Any other source of this movie? Would love to watch it again..

All of his should be available free as they are all out of copyright. Many of them are worth a read. Days of the comet is a bit naff but Food of the Gods and First men on the moon are good reads...
Heat to the OP for spotting this, so well done, but just to point out it is free elsewhere together with all other HG Wells titles.

Project Gutenberg is a library of over 60,000 free eBooks. Choose among free epub and Kindle eBooks, download them or read them online. You will find the world's great literature here, with focus on older works for which U.S. copyright has expired. Thousands of volunteers digitized and diligently proofread the eBooks, for enjoyment and education.

No.

I'm pretty sure it can since the sd card was formatted to be recognised as part of the internal storage and is encrypted so it can't be read when u take it out of phone. The question was about the details of moving. I have tried in the past to install firefox on the sd but it went be to the same place on internal. I just installed some free games and they went to the external, it seems pretty random.

Amazon doesnt allow the removal of kindle books.
This is a classic novel and a good read. I feel the author tried to portray a picture much ahead of their time and fairly succeeded in imagining and putting the same into words. However, I feel that there could be much more that could be done with the story.

Rereading a bit of Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury and Terry Pratchett at the mo, so I've managed to avoid reading many papers - especially tabloids.
Downloaded and thanks

Have a look at Calibre ebook management software (free) - you used to be able get add-ons which would let you move Amazon books.

You should read more. There's vast amounts of rich writing out there - far more than in Wells' time.

That's right. Unfortunately there's also a huge amount of pap that would not have been written at all in Wells' time.

Not quite true - you have good taste and decomposition to thank for the fact you've not seen as much pap, not the fact that the pap wasn't written at the time. It was. Lots of it.
