Narrated by Scott BrickChallenge: Classics Club, Back to Classics Genre or Movie Adaption? Genre: Science Fiction Type/Source: Audiobook/Library Why I read this now: Hard to say…
MOTIVATION for READING: I love time travel stuff.
WHAT’s it ABOUT: A gentleman invents a time machine and jettisons himself off into the far, very far, future.
Humanity splits into good and bad? leisure class and workers – lots to dissect here if I was feeling academic, which today I am not. But, even as I reflected its place as commentary on society and its juxtaposition with what is going on now in relation to capitalism, etc, I just don’t have the energy to do more than recognize it likely has something to say that I might want to pay attention to?
THOUGHTS: It was OK. Some of these old-timey books, I just love and get right into the rhythm. This one had me a bit impatient. I now know what Morlocks are. I certainly can appreciate the classic and the WOW! factor this has enjoyed over the years.
With so many classics, the fun is saying “Yep, read it.” and I am glad to be able to say so now. Check it off the list.
RATING: Three slices of pie.
