When Books become Movies: H.G. Wells - The Time Machine

From the book by H.G. Wells, in the heart of Victorian England, an inquisitive gentleman known only as the Time Traveler constructs an elaborate invention that hurtles him hundreds of thousands of years into the future. There he finds himself in the violent center of the ultimate conflict between beings of light and creatures of darkness. Two races, a mild gentle race, and a cannibalistic one living underground. His machine is stolen by the underground race and he must risk being captured (and eaten) to return to his own time.

This 32,000 word story is generally credited with the popularisation of the concept of time travel using a vehicle that allows an operator to travel purposefully and selectively. The term "time machine", coined by Wells, is now universally used to refer to such a vehicle. Wells also introduced the idea of time being the "fourth dimension"

Of course I'm a fan of the book's original cover, the art work is nothing more then a Sphinx with the Egyptian head-dress of nobility, which is indeed a symbol of timelessness for it's actual birth record is unknown to archaeologists and it is dated to be much older then the pyramids of Giza. A line from the book that I enjoyed was: "You must follow me carefully. I shall have to controvert one or two ideas that are almost universally accepted. The geometry, for instance, they taught you at school is founded on a misconception."

Brilliant Book!
