The Time Machine

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The Time Traveller, a dreamer obsessed with traveling through time, builds himself a time machine and, much to his surprise, travels over 800,000 years into the future. He lands in the year 802701: the world has been transformed by a society living in apparent harmony and bliss, but as the Traveler stays in the future he discovers a hidden barbaric and depraved subterranean class. Wells's transparent commentary on the capitalist society was an instant bestseller and launched the time-travel genre.
The Time Machine inspired the international bestseller The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma. As a gift to our readers, we are including the first three chapters of The Map of Time in this ebook edition.  

Customer Reviews

Read it yo!

This book is awesome! My only complaint is that it's too short. I wanted to keep reading more! Wells is so descriptive and you feel the sense of terror and uncertainty throughout the book. I could not stop reading!

A Groundbreaking Classic!

The Time Machines is a story that will always captivate and intrigue its readers because it revolves around an invention that humans have longed for since the beginning of time. It's great that this beautiful presentation on iBooks is offered for free!

A 21 year old's 3rd chapter book

I'm not much of a reader but this one caught my interest. I figured I should give reading a shot seen as how I have my iPhone with me 24/7, not to mention the book was free. It's short and interesting, the ending was unexpected and left a little to be desired I felt. Worth a read none the less. While reading this book I couldn't help but think I had seen a tv/movie heavily based on it but not word for word. Give it a shot, you'll probably enjoy it : )
