Which Three Books Would You Bring?

The Time Machine is the first book written by acclaimed writer H.G. Wells. Which turned into one of the most influential science fiction movies of all time. The Time Machine is also responsible for popularizing the concept of time travel. A concept that will never become a reality no matter how much science you put into it. Still, it’s fun to imagine what it would be like to actually be able to time travel to the past, present, or future. The Time Machine focuses squarely on the future. George Wells is an inventor who successfully invents a time machine. A cool looking stationary machine that George uses to travel forwards in time. He unwillingly ends up traveling too far in time when he experiences a nuclear explosion that causes him to be buried under a volcanic eruption. He ends up in the far future of 802,701, where he discovers a race of people called the Eloi. Passive blonde haired blue eyed people who live a simple life. A life that includes being eaten by a primitive race of humanoid mutants known as the Morlocks. I remember The Time Machine for being part of my parents VHS collection. I watched it at a young age, because my mom told me and my brother we had to watch it. It fast became one of my favorite sci-fi movies of all time. Some quotes in the movie even became inside jokes for my family. It also received an Oscar for the groundbreaking use of time lapsing effects. The Time Machine is a timeless classic.

  1. I’d always been of the opinion that time travel doesn’t exist, but then I got to thinking… there’d be so much regulation around it that we’d never know!!
