Part of the Legend Classics series

A brilliant scientist constructs a machine that allows him to journey into the future. He travels to the year AD 802,701 where he discovers that humanity has evolved into two separate races: the beautiful vegetarian Eloi people who live purposeless lives and the terrifying carnivorous Morlocks who lives under the ground. After barely escaping the Morlocks, the time-travelling scientist has to make yet another trip even further into the future

The Time Machine is considered one of the best science-fiction novel of all time and the first to popularize the concept of a time machine - a term coined by Wells.
