"The Time Machine" by H.G. Wells
This book is about a man (whose name is stated as The Time Traveller) who has created a time machine. The book begins with the time traveller stumbling into a room where some of his colleges were talking. One of the people, Filby, remembers the events of one week ago, when the time traveller showed them his new machine. The Time Traveller then tells his tale of time travel. His story begins with him in his lab, about to test his machine. After his trip from 10:00 to 3:30, he then travels to the year 802,701 A.D. In this strange future, he finds out the fate of man. Afterwards, he travels to a desolate future. Returning to the past, he makes one more stop, arriving in a strange future where the humans have divided agains each other in the North and South. A great tale of possible futures, I give this book a five of five. This is a classic every one should read!
