After al the surprises we can look at the story as unique in its time, first published in 1895, yet the message is timeless. The writing and timing could not have been better. And the ending was certainly appropriate for the world that he describes. Possibly if the story were written today the species division would be based on eugenics. H. G. Wells does a magnificent job with this one.I found myself intrigued with the story of a scientist who dreams, plans and succeeds in building a machine that allows him to travel both forwards and backwards through time -- and does so! What he finds is truly surprising and to imagine someone from the late 1880a and early 1900s coming up with such a story is amazing. And who knows, what his character finds may very well be the future of the human race. A truly thought-provoking book.
