H.G. Wells' classic science fiction-fantasy story, in which a scientist known only as “The Time Traveller” tells the tale of his journey to the year 802,701 A.D. and beyond, where he witnesses the end of human civilization as we know it, as well as the beginning of the end of the world. This original time-travel story has been copied many times, but never improved upon. (Summary by Mark Nelson) (3 hr 39 min)

Fantastic reflection on time

(5 stars)

(4 stars)

enjoyed the story. nice that one reader did the entire book.

(5 stars)

Still one of my favorite stories. Well read.

(4 stars)

well read. the story has been imitated and suppressed so much that little remains remarkable perhaps the date of all pioneering work.

very interesting story, sad worldview by author.

(4 stars)

The story is very engaging and interesting. Extremely creative. The world view expressed through the story by the author is very sad and demoralizing. We are far more than animals, we are created in the image of God. We have far more purpose than to live and to die.


(5 stars)

a classic novel, and I very much liked the readers voice and tones, it is very much how I picture the traveler to talk and speak. I've read this book many times, and this time listening to it I felt it deeper, the fear, the sense of curiosity, the caring and the loss.

(4 stars)

An interesting exploration of time theory and the future that might be waiting for humanity. Shorter then I anticipated but I wanted more. A great read to understand some of the roots of the modern day fantasy psychy

Worth listening to

(5 stars)

An intriguing story very well read of a fantastical adventure in time. Not overly long and entertaining throughout Almost wish HG Wells had written a sequel. Impressed by the reader; sounded professional
