"The Time Machine" is one of the most loved science fiction novels of all time. H. G. Wells crafts a vivid and haunting picture of an earth some 800,000 years into the future. Written in the late 19th century, "The Time Machine" was the first novel about time travel and its impact on the science fiction genre is unparalleled. "The Time Machine" was written at the beginning of a period of great technological advancement and it is evident that this was of serious concern to Wells. The author poses the question within the framework of the novel; will technology ever go to far? The future world of the Eloi depicted within the novel warns of the dangerous consequences of unchecked technological advancements.
