The Time Machine Book Summary

James Scott on 2/24/2011 9:21:07 PM

Published in 1895, The Time Machine is a masterpiece of science fiction. The protagonist-the Time Traveler finds himself in the year 802,701 AD where he encounters two opposing races- the Elois and the Morlocks which Wells feared will be the outcome of continued class-division. The Time Machine is a dystopia where the leisured and blissful Elois live on the ground and enjoy the sun, whereas the devilish Morlocks live below the ground in darkness and keep working hard so that Elois can be fed. The book is a Marxist warning of what will happen to mankind if the capitalist forces continue to exploit the working class.

I seem to go through phases. Months of mysteries, then ages of archaeology... with only occasional oddities thrown in to cleanse my palate. I don't particularly care for romances unless they are memoirs, and I don't read vampires except the original Dracula (and then histories of the myth), and not much science fiction. Otherwise...bring it on!
