Book #26 of the 50 Book Challenge...

From Goodreads.com:

When the "Time Traveller" courageously stepped out of his machine for the first time, he found himself in the year 802,700 - and everything had changed. In another, more utopian age, creatures seemed to dwell together in perfect harmony. The Time Traveller thought he could study these marvelous beings - unearth their secret and then return to his own time - until he discovered that his invention, his only avenue of escape, had been stolen. (H. G. Well's famous novel of one man's astonishing journey beyond the conventional limits of the imagination first appeared in 1895. It won him immediate recognition, and has been regarded ever since as one of the great masterpieces in the literature of science fiction).

My take:

3 out of 5 stars. I liked it but I didn't love it. I was hoping there would be more explanation of why one race of people in the future lived above ground and one lived below ground and what happened to cause it to be this way. But it was ok.
