This is such a scifi classic that I have sort of been avoiding it. However...seeing that this version was narrated by Mark Nelson...I jumped right in. Absolutely no disappointment here. I loved the descriptive depths achieved and the ideas advanced for the time the book was written. Give it a few months and I will listen again....

time machine is awesome.

the reason I loved this book was because of person who read this book , his work is artistic , his voice is worth for radio , I am not an native English speaker but I loved this book even on higher audio speed , so thank you very much and I really needed to appreciate your work for humanity because your work is gift for all in these busy times .thank you and salute all the way from kashmir.

an amazing reflection on what can happen if man does not review actions and put it in context as to how it affects nature in its entirety. the mental capacity of h g Wells to tell the story in a way that is entertaining and believable leaves me and awe

well read and recorded

(5 stars)

does there exist anything in this world that is really perfect? The same thing beeing from here strength from another point of view a weakness. So this recording is not perfect. It is quite good though and lacks nothing nor does it need to be improved.

well read

(5 stars)

The best rendition of this classic book I have heard so far. HG Wells' science fiction at its best. Despite the century that has elapsed since it's publication. The prose is still surprisingly easy to get caught up in.

totally entertaining

(5 stars)

this is the first time I'm actually read the book. up until now my only experience was by way of the classic movie. minor correction. Ireland listen to book :-). very well-read by the narrator.

(4 stars)

A classic for a reason. I believe this story has stood the test of time and will continue to do so. H.G. Wells was ahead of his time. I really need to read his other works.

(5 stars)

No complaints here. Even as a non native speaker of English I was able to follow everything side by side with the time traveler. The reading is clear and has a nice pace.
