    This was a very poor retelling of what I suspect was a good tale from H.G. Wells. Not good!

    This is a graphic novel of the story in a simplified version. A scientist invents a time machine that takes him into the future.

    Quick little read (Pretty sure it is meant for kids..?) Really makes me want to read the book. I might have to pick up a copy!

    this book fits in the category of a book about survival or facing a challenge. I decided to read this book because my teacher recommended it to me. In most parts of the book i liked how it was interesting and had thrilling action. The author described the situations really well and it helped me imagine the parts well. The ending was a twist. i wasn't expecting how the time traveler would go back in time to live forever because he was in love with Weena.

The ending was a twist. i wasn't expecting how the time traveler would go back in time to live forever because he was in love with Weena. I found the Morlocks in the book very annoying and scary. They stole the time traveler's time machine so they could trap and eat him. Luckily the time traveler survived. In the end of the book, Morlocks also burnt Weena to death. It was very terrifying to imagine a innocent young women burn in the flames of fire. The pink flower that Wenna gave to the time traveler made me think about why she gave it to him. Weena gave the flower to the time traveler when he was about to go to the Morlocks cave so she must be hiding a secret or the flower might be for his protection. "THE SUN LEAPS ACROSS THE SKY. EVERY MINUTE IS ANOTHER DAY" I found this saying from the book very interesting. It explained when the time traveller was traveling time, when a minute passed. Another day was gone he had no control of the time. The time machine was doing it all.

    In reading this graphic novel for class, I couldn't get over the feeling that I was reading a comic book. I'm not sure it's right to translate classic novels into graphic format, and I'm not sure this one translated very well. I was reminded of the story I read as a child and didn't fully understand, only this time there was little left to my imagination because the images were given to me. While it wasn't bad, it seemed overly simplistic, and I enjoy too much the challenge of reading a novel an In reading this graphic novel for class, I couldn't get over the feeling that I was reading a comic book.

While it wasn't bad, it seemed overly simplistic, and I enjoy too much the challenge of reading a novel and creating my own world in how I construct it in my mind's eye. Graphic novels feel too paint-by-color. I wasn't a fan of how the story felt condensed. While I realize that without the illustrations, the story would have made no sense (as it was practically void of description), the illustrations did nothing for me, and made the whole thing seem even more childish and unbelievable. I wouldn't recommend this particular graphic novel to anyone, or maybe a very young age at best, though I have also seen the value of other graphic novels. It seems this type is very pick-and-choose.

    Even taking into account that this was made with a very young audience, it is a poorly adapted graphic novel. It takes only the bare bones of the plot and tosses away everything else, like a gutted, ill-fated Eloi left in the Morlock butcher shop, and what is left over lacks any importance or meaning from the original work. There are strange cuts in the narrative between panels, making it nonsensical at times.

    It is London 1895 and a group of well to-do men meet at the home of their friend, an inventor. They wonder what surprise he has for them tonight. Their host, known only in the story as The Time Traveler, shows them his time machine. Of course no one believes that it will really work. Nor do they believe him the next week when they return for a visit and he tells them of his adventures in the future. This was H.G. Wells first novel and was published when he was only 29.

    this is about the graphic novel edition this was a massive let down from the original h. g. wells classic. it was a brisk summary of quite a compelling books with none of the characters being portrayed as they were in the novel. it could have easily been stretched out to several installments which would have dramatically improved my enjoyment. the book took me about 1-2 hours of pure enjoyment, i read this in about ten minutes cover to cover... i wouldn;t recommend this to anyone, for a little mo this is about the graphic novel edition this was a massive let down from the original h. g. wells classic. it was a brisk summary of quite a compelling books with none of the characters being portrayed as they were in the novel. it could have easily been stretched out to several installments which would have dramatically improved my enjoyment. the book took me about 1-2 hours of pure enjoyment, i read this in about ten minutes cover to cover... i wouldn;t recommend this to anyone, for a little more time you can enjoy the whole thing the way h.g. intended

    As far as the Graphic Revolve series goes, it was ok. Wait, wait, wait. In the graphic novel, twice it is stated that the traveler leaves 1895 and ends up 800 centuries in the future in the year 8,027,011. The description above puts them in another year entirely. Now, someone check my math, please. 8 centuries = 800 years 80 centuries = 8,000 years 800 centuries = 80,000 years How the HELL is this guy ending up around year 8 million? Someone please help me out. Is my math wrong? Am I crazy? What hap As far as the Graphic Revolve series goes, it was ok. Wait, wait, wait.

    It was OK, but it could have been sooooo much better. There was not enough time taken with the 'real' story to make it good. We read this in half an hour, and the child I was reading it with isn't a fast reader. Too bad, but a good warning to me to really check these before I get them - I don't want to out the child off of classics, even in graphic novel form, because they aren't interesting and complete enough.

    Maybe it was just me, but I really wasn't feeling this graphic novel. I haven't read the "actual book" or seen and film adaptations, so the graphic novel was my first exposure to this world's setting. Even though graphic novels don't do much describing, this book felt like it still needed a little more of it (or at least of something). I'm hoping my mind set might alter on this book after I read the "actual book".

    I guess I need to read H.G. Wells' Time Machine to get a better understanding of the graphic novel. Although, I thought that these 'classic' graphic novels were created so that teens could have a background understanding of the classics. Oh well, it was pretty good.

    Yeah, so all the Eloi were drawn as little tiny people just as the original version describes... But then Weena is drawn as a tall lady with kinda big boobs. So that was weird.
