The Time Machine

Nation Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopesand 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 The Time Traveler invites over his friends and tells them of his theories about time traveling The next day when his friend returns he stumbles in late and then tells them a tale about his journey through time I really admired the writing though it may be dry or dense for some I think I ve been reading long enough that it wasn t too much of an effort to read through this one The premise was interesting and I was anxious for the Time Traveler when he was recounting his journey to get back to the present so the story did draw me in Some of the social commentary felt uite uestionable and pessimistic though I enjoyed reading it though it s not very long and it was interesting Towards the end of the Time Traveler s journey I got a little bored but the ending was really good I appreciate an open ended ending that lets you keep imagining what happened
