The Time Machine [Annotated]
Independently Published, Oct 14, 2019 - 80 pages
The Time Machine begins with a dinner party, in which the inventor of a time machine explains to his disbelieving guests the principles on which his invention is based. This scene is a quintessential one in stories by Wells, in which an original mind finds itself checked by an audience that is taken aback by daring and ingenuity. The time traveler persists, however, gradually making his auditors reconsider their basic premises, even if they do not concede that it is possible to travel through time.Although Wells rarely bothered to construct elaborate scientific justifications for his romances, the inventor's speech can still seem convincing to the nonmathematician. Much of the book is cast in the inventor's first-person narration, in which he recounts to his friends the results of his journey through time.
