    "The Time Machine is regarded as H.G. Wells' best and most recognized works of fiction. Anything that you've ever learned about time travel likely was spawned from the concept made popular by this single book. I recommend reading the source itself for a better understanding of what time travel means."

    "As much as I love H.G. Wells there is a reason this is not one of his more well known novels. It kind of rides the coat tails of his other works."
