My Review - 

H.G Wells is the Shakespeare of science fiction. After watching the series Time After Time on Amazon Prime, I decided to read The Time Machine and other works by the author. 

Plot - It is the story of a Time Traveller, he designed a time machine. One day while working, he travels into the year 802,701. In the dark night, the first thing he saw is the white sphinx, which is the key to his past and present. Soon he realized that humankind was divided into two types. 

One is Eloi, who lives above the earth and fears the murk. Others are Morlocks; they stroll in the dark and exist subterrene. Time Traveller meets an Eloi named Weena. She helped him with this new world. Morlocks stole the time machine, and the protagonist ignited a war against them. 

H.G. Wells described the characters by their profession. The protagonist portrays as a capable and headstrong man. Weena is considered a symbol of hope and humanity. The other Time Machine characters don't have space to grow. 

The words are complicated to discern. In the beginning, I googled a lot of terms. I also felt that the story is a bit dull. Although the book has inspired many more fiction works, I like how the author narrates the whole story. If you're into classics, this is a must-read.

About the author - 
Born in Bromley in Kent, England, Herbert George “H. G.” Wells (1866-1946) has been called the father of science fiction. His most notable works include the War of the Worlds (1897), the Time Machine (1895), the Invisible Man (1897), and the Island of Doctor Moreau (1896). Wells also wrote on history and social commentary topics and was involved in politics for much of his life. Novels like Kipps and the History of Mr.Polly, which describe lower-middle-class life, led to the suggestion that he was a worthy successor to Charles Dickens.

Wells died in London in August 1946, after living through two World Wars. The Worlds War has been both popular (having never gone out of print) and influential, spawning half a dozen feature films, radio dramas, a record album, various comic book adaptations, a television series, and sequels parallel stories by other authors.
