The Time Machine
Hugh reads HG Wells’ science fiction novella, The Time Machine.
Transported to the year AD 802,701, the Time Traveller encounters the peaceful Eloi, a beautiful elfin race of childlike adults afraid of the dark, and with good reason. Beneath the earth’s surface live the Morlocks; apish troglodytes who torment the Eloi. When the time machine is stolen, the Time Traveller must enter Morlock territory if he ever hopes to return home.
Part of an HG Wells science fiction collection including The War of the Worlds read by David Tennant, The Invisible Man read by Sophie Okonedo, The Island of Dr Moreau read by Jason Isaacs, and The First Men in the Moon read by Alexander Vlahos.
