Summary

When a Victorian scientist propels himself into the year 802,701 AD, he is initially delighted to find that suffering has been replaced by beauty, contentment and peace. Entranced at first by the Eloi, an elfin species descended from man, he soon realises that this beautiful people are simply remnants of a once-great culture - now weak and childishly afraid of the dark. But they have every reason to be afraid: in deep tunnels beneath their paradise lurks another race descended from humanity - the sinister Morlocks. And when the scientist's time machine vanishes, it becomes clear he must search these tunnels, if he is ever to return to his own era.

interesting thoughts

I decided to listen to this book as its a classic and I wanted to broaden my reading interests.
the book was ok, I didn't realise how short it was but considering when it was written, found it pleasant enough.
i found the idea that HG Wells wanted to write about a time that is so far into the future that its even wonder if our world will still exist then, or if it will have died out long since.

A wonderful book, in the same class as Gulliver’s Travels. It is one of the books I would like to take with me to Purgatory. - Sir Winston S. Churchill
