H.G. Wells story of a machine that travels through time was a great introduction to sci-fi for a novice. I went in thinking I would not be able to follow the story line and thought it was going to be totally outside of my realm of thinking. I was wrong. The story actually was interesting and drew me into his idea of what life could be like in the year 802,701. It was actually scary in his depiction of how two classes of people existed. The Eloi were described as everyone having the same hair cut, dress and mannerism and they were vegetarian. The Morlocks were undressed, bald and could not bear the sunlight, they were seen as evil. It was disturbing that the story focused so strongly on good versus evil.
