The Time Machine

“It is a law of nature we overlook, that intellectual versatility is the compensation for change, danger, and trouble. An animal perfectly in harmony with its environment is a perfect mechanism. Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no change and no need of change. ”

Many themes are presented in this novel but the major ones consist of evolution, society, and Social Darwinism.

H.G. Wells is one of the first and most important writers of science fiction. His novels consist of social and political themes, but The Time Machine is a novel that intertwines all of the themes he uses.

The Time Machine by H.G wells presents the adventures of a person, "The Time Traveler" as he is called, who travels into time and discovers a whole different world. He travels through time and discovers in the future the beautiful people are lazy yet live above ground controlling everything. While the working class live underground, poor and suffering. H.G. Wells uses this similartity to describe how the future society will be and how it essentially has come to be.

I would highly recommend this novel. It is a fun and exciting novel that makes you feels as though you are the journey with time traveler". It is incredible how well H.G. Wells analogy is with society. Although this book was published in 1895, the way Wells describe how society will be in the future is excatly how I feel it is right now. The novel also has heart warming parts and is an amazing science fiction novel.
