Time Machine review

For many years time travel has been the leading topic in the Sci-Fi\Fantasy genre. The book The Time Machine by H.G. Wells is dominated by the thought of travelling forward through time.

Have you ever wondered what the world would be like in the year 802701? Well the main character in The Time Machine, the time traveler, got to experience it first hand. Many of his questions about the future were answered, but he left with even more questions than he had come with.

Would there be human life? Is the earth still intact? What animals have become extinct, and what new kinds of life forms are there? These questions and many more were answered, but new ones arose. How did this come to be? How had the world changed? What is left of the human race?

When talking about time travel controversy is always near by. Is time travel possible, we may never know. Have there been visitors from the future? What impacts on the future would there be if you did something in the past? All of these questions and many more arise on the topic of time travel.

Being a relatively short and easy read I would recommend the book to anyone with a sense of adventure. H.G. Wells is a resounding author and wrote some of the best Sci-Fi novels ever.
