Well read classic

(4.5 stars)

The title says it all! However, I’ve got to fill up this review space with something… The reader did a very good job with this, he kept it interesting for me. Many thanks to Mr. Mark Nelson for recording this! The story is one of my favorites, I have listened to several versions, and I think this one is among the very best! Would recommend for ages 12+

(5 stars)

an amazing reflection on what can happen if man does not review actions and put it in context as to how it affects nature in its entirety. the mental capacity of h g Wells to tell the story in a way that is entertaining and believable leaves me and awe

well read and recorded

(5 stars)

does there exist anything in this world that is really perfect? The same thing beeing from here strength from another point of view a weakness. So this recording is not perfect. It is quite good though and lacks nothing nor does it need to be improved.

Time machine, Interesting story

(4 stars)

I wasn't sure that I would make it through the entire story when it began. As the pace picked up. I liked it. Some interesting ideas about the future of our world which I hope are wrong.

well read

(5 stars)

The best rendition of this classic book I have heard so far. HG Wells' science fiction at its best. Despite the century that has elapsed since it's publication. The prose is still surprisingly easy to get caught up in.

(4 stars)

A classic for a reason. I believe this story has stood the test of time and will continue to do so. H.G. Wells was ahead of his time. I really need to read his other works.

(5 stars)

No complaints here. Even as a non native speaker of English I was able to follow everything side by side with the time traveler. The reading is clear and has a nice pace.

(5 stars)
