Audiobook Summary: The Time Machine is a novel by H. G. Wells, first published in 1895 and later adapted into feature films of the same name, as well as television versions, and a large number of comic book adaptations. This story is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel using a vehicle that allows an operator to travel purposefully and selectively. The story reflects Wells's own socialist political views and the contemporary anxiety about industrial relations. The book's central character is an English scientist and gentleman inventor, identified by the narrator simply as the Time Traveler. The narrator recounts the Traveler's lecture to his weekly dinner guests - explaining that time is simply a fourth dimension - and his demonstration of a tabletop model machine for travelling through it. He reveals that he has built a machine capable of carrying a person, and returns at dinner the following week to recount a remarkable tale. This audiobook is part of the Audiobook Classics Collection, one of the most popular all-digital multi-platform series, recorded by experienced voiceover announcer Drew Birdseye and produced by Bienestar LLC.
