Happy New Year! Let’s start 2016 off with a new book club pick, The Time Machine by H.G. Wells!
The enigmatic inventor referred to only as ‘The Time Traveler’ recounts a tale of adventure for a group of his friends after his first excursion in the Time Machine. Travelling into the distant future of 802,701 A.D., the Time Traveler discovers the disturbing evolutionary destiny of the human race. The Time Machine has been adapted to movies, television, and comic books. It has also indirectly inspired many more works of fiction in many media.
