Gripping from the get-go

A great way to start off my audio books journey, this classic propelled me to a wonder world of imagination as told through the pen of the great HG Wells. I’ve never read this before and so wasn’t sure what kind of sci-fi fantasy could be conjured from a nineteenth-century author. I was so pleasantly surprised at how detailed and adventurous this book is as expertly narrated by Kelsey Grammer. He has a mastery of the queen’s dialect despite not being a native of England. He respectfully and accurately read the book as they though from within each character and especially the main character, capturing the accent likely spoken in that time. I listened to this book while on my daily walks, so I could picture in my mind very descriptively all the scenes. I have now gained a high appreciation for classic novels and am hooked on Apple audio books. Thanks, Apple!


All new to me except I swear I’ve seen parts of a movie about this. Surely not as good as the original. Hooked on audio books now.

CLASSIC and must listen

Always loved this tale by H.G. Wells and loved the reading performed by Kelsey Grammer. Grammer's sultry voice and excellent intonations bring out the Time Traveler's story so exquisitely. Decided on this audiobook as my free audiobook option and NO REGRETS!
