    The Time Traveller for so it will be convenient to speak of him was expounding a recondite matter to us His grey eyes shone and twinkled, and his usually pale face was flushed and animated The fire burned brightly, and the soft radiance of the incandescent lights in the lilies of silver caught the bubbles that flashed and passed in our glasses.

    1. Meh. I've not yet read the original, but if this is any guide I think I might skip the novel all together. I feel like I've seen a much better futurama episode of this & that might be unfair as this work did(& still does) have a big impact of pop culture, but the work is just past it's prime. In the art direction this work falls squarely into the classic comic style which just feels innately icky to me. Blergh, not worth it.

    2. Read for a school assignment. Meh. I thought it would be more exciting.Side note: I wish I could read classic stories and not have them ruined by male characters saying shit like, "I know you don't understand, you sweet, silly little girl." At one point he literally says, "I am man," as if that were sufficient to explain his inevitable success. Barf.

    3. This was the first science fiction novel that I can recall reading, when I was in the 6th or 7th grade. Truly a masterpiece of the genre, and a seminal work that has inspired several generations of sci-fi writers to create their own time travel stories. The book captivated me right from the start, with a plausible explanation of how Time (as the 4th dimension) is bound up with the other 3 dimension of everyday experience. No explanation is offered for exactly how the time machine was able to tra [...]

    4. Reading this is a nostalgic trip back to my childhood. Lorenz Graham basically followed the original novel by H.G. Wells for this Classics Illustrated adaptation, creating a dialog and narrative that was appropriate and engaging for children. However, he broke from the novel’s original ending, giving his comic a slightly happier ending. The story is well complimented by the illustrations of Lou Cameron who uses traditional panels and guttering, but plays with the vibrant colors and imagery of [...]

    6. Безперечно чужова класика. Неймовірно як в тому далекому часі письменник освітлював час як четвертий вимір у просторі та писав про розширення сонця та про теорію поглинаггя ним найближчих планет.

    7. It was entertaining, at least at first, but my immersion started to vanish at about the 1/4 mark.

    9. Jag har länge frågat de svenska förlagen efter en faksimilutgåva av Illustrerade klassiker, en av de titlar som verkar ha flest fans från den tid det begav sig, samtidigt som serierna är kulturellt intressanta ur ett antal perspektiv. Så kom då den första volymen, men tyvärr har man slarvat bort tanken en aning. Idén är i sig ambitiös: istället för att publicera faksimiler kronologiskt väljer man de bästa historierna och sätter samman dem i tematiskt baserade volymer, komplette [...]

    10. When I first read this book I was 4. Well technically I didn't read it, but my parents and aunts/uncles read it to me. I was just looking at the pictures, since it was a classic illustrated edition. I loved it so much that I was asking for the specific story again and again. It is officially the first book I remember. Later in my life I read it countless times (by my self :p) in a regular edition.* I loved it then and still love it! I would recommend it to any one with a soft spot to science fic [...]

    11. I read this right after reading the book. The Classics Illustrated version is lots of fun and is closer to the original than many of the film versions, even though the cosmic end parts of the novel are not included.
