    About “H.G. Wells”

    1. H.G. Wells

      In 1866, Herbert George H.G Wells was born to a working class family in Kent, England Young Wells received a spotty education, interrupted by several illnesses and family difficulties, and became a draper s apprentice as a teenager The headmaster of Midhurst Grammar School, where he had spent a year, arranged for him to return as an usher, or student teacher Wells earned a government scholarship in 1884, to study biology under Thomas Henry Huxley at the Normal School of Science Wells earned his bachelor of science and doctor of science degrees at the University of London After marrying his cousin, Isabel, Wells began to supplement his teaching salary with short stories and freelance articles, then books, including The Time Machine 1895 , The Island of Dr Moreau 1896 , The Invisible Man 1897 , and The War of the Worlds 1898.Wells created a mild scandal when he divorced his cousin to marry one of his best students, Amy Catherine Robbins Although his second marriage was lasting and produced two sons, Wells was an unabashed advocate of free as opposed to indiscriminate love He continued to openly have extra marital liaisons, most famously with Margaret Sanger, and a ten year relationship with the author Rebecca West, who had one of his two out of wedlock children A one time member of the Fabian Society, Wells sought active change His 100 books included many novels, as well as nonfiction, such as A Modern Utopia 1905 , The Outline of History 1920 , A Short History of the World 1922 , The Shape of Things to Come 1933 , and The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind 1932 One of his booklets was Crux Ansata, An Indictment of the Roman Catholic Church Although Wells toyed briefly with the idea of a divine will in his book, God the Invisible King 1917 , it was a temporary aberration Wells used his international fame to promote his favorite causes, including the prevention of war, and was received by government officials around the world He is best remembered as an early writer of science fiction and futurism.He was also an outspoken socialist Wells and Jules Verne are each sometimes referred to as The Fathers of Science Fiction D 1946.More philosopedia indexp H._ine literature wellhgwellsusa.50megs britannica EBchecked tenpedia wiki H._G._Wells

    1. One of the most difficult courses I took in college was a class called Sociological Theory. The professor was either brilliant or a total nut, I’m still not sure, and one of the questions for our final exam was actually: Why? (Use diagrams to support your response).Ugh, ugh, ugh!!! I walked out of that class with a B and I kid you not, I have never worked so hard for a B in my life! I pity the one guy in my class who walked away with an A and don’t even want to think about what his social li [...]


    2. هربرت جورج ويلز قدم بحث عن وجود بعد رابع وهو بعد الزمان منفصل عن الأبعاد الزمانية التانية واترفض بحثه لأنهم اعتبروه مبهم وبعدها بأكتر من عشر سنين قدم أينشتين نفس الفكرة وأصبح أعظم شخصية في تاريخ العلم بعد نيوتن-طبعا بغض النظر عن الإثبات الرياضي المحكم اللي أزال الإبهام عكس ا [...]


    3. Returning to a novel you liked years ago is often a risky business, particularly so when the genre of that novel is science fiction. Nothing can age so rapidly as the past’s conception of the future, and what once seemed cutting edge may, after fifty years or more, appear simply ludicrous.Because of this, I was delighted to fine H.G. Wells at least as charming and exciting as I remembered it, the Time Traveler’s scientific lecture still intriguing, the journey he describes still convincing, [...]


    4. The Time Traveler invites over his friends and tells them of his theories about time traveling. The next day when his friend returns he stumbles in late and then tells them a tale about his journey through time. I really admired the writing though it may be dry or dense for some, I think I've been reading long enough that it wasn't too much of an effort to read through this one. The premise was interesting and I was anxious for the Time Traveler when he was recounting his journey to get back to [...]


    5. A Victorian-era scientist calls together a group of men and tells them of his recent adventure, a trip through timeI had intended to participate in a reading of this with the Distinguished Society of Pantless Readers but once I had a taste, I wolfed the whole tale down in one sitting.The Time Machine is probably the first time travel story and definitely a spiritual ancestor of every time travel story since. The nameless time traveler whips up a time machine and travels through time. What could [...]


    6. Surely an oversight that I hadn't read H.G. Wells' The Time Machine before now. By all accounts, this is the original time travel story. Still, social class and how technical innovations change humanity are more central to the story than whether the narrator was actually able to travel to 802,701 AD. Ever since, time travel stories have been about exploring the possibilities of the present rather than some far-flung future (or past). This novella was sometimes clunky (but it was written in 1895) [...]


    7. H.G. Wells's The Time Machine was required reading in high school for most when I was in 9th grade (about 25 years ago), and one of my teachers chose this book as 1 of 10 books we read that year in an English literature comparative analysis course. Each month, we'd read a book and watch two film adaptations, then have discussions and write a paper. At the time, I thought, this book is a little cheesy I mean, not that I was a huge Star Trek fan (although I did love me some Voyager), but even I kn [...]


    8. A group read with a bunch of Pantaloonless Buddies.I have yet to see any decent movie adaptation of this science fiction classic, let alone a good one. The only reason I give a plot synopsis of this otherwise well-known story is that I am afraid some people would judge it by a (very lame) movie. This is the granddaddy of practically all time-travelling stories, including very new and popular sub-genre: time-travelling romance. An inventor built a time machine. He used it to travel to a distant f [...]


    9. The Time Machine is like going to Jimmy John's to get a sandwich because the bread is just amazing. It's so much better than any other sandwich chain out there, and I'm convinced they are using some form of illegal addictive substance in the baking process that keeps me coming back for more. The Time Machine is like that, but you only get turkey on your sandwich. No cheese or mayo or lettuce or tomato. Just turkey. The bread is still amazing though. Just like the beginning and the ending of The [...]


    10. If there was one single reason to read this it would be that H.G Wells was a favoured author and an inspiration to the Legendary writer Ray Bradbury. Pictured below in a time machine movie prop.2333 December 19thAlas this is a fine work from a writer of bygone times and if he could only discover his vision and writings of Time Travel were in fact prophecies and became true. As I have indeed traveled to 802,701AD and meet the lovely Weena a female Eloi and the dreadful Morlocks. The Time Machine [...]


    11. How will the Earth look like 800,000 years in the future? That's a question everyone can only attempt to find an answer to, while H.G. Wells was one of the first writers who tackled the topic of time-travelling and painted a rather convincing picture of the future.Published in 1895, the book introduces a scientist who uses a Time Machine to be transferred into the age of a slowly dying earth. Humans have been separated by time, genetics, wars and change of their habitats into two different races [...]


    12. What’s in store for the future?Well, maybe some spoilerish content if you haven’t read this book yet.If you go by H. G. Wells novella, society (at least in merry future England circa 802,000 AD) will have been split between the Eloi and Morlocks in a bizarre twist on the haves and have nots.What we predict for the distant future is predicated on what’s happening in the present. Wells future is filtered from the political science theories of his day. Capitalism-Communism, Workers-Idle rich, [...]


    13. عن غروب البشرية نتحدثعن البشر عندما صار طولهم 140سم وجوههم ناعمةلافرق بين النساء والرجالأصبح الجميع أقرب الأطفال شكلا و موضوعا كسالي غارقون في الراحة و لا يخافون سوى الظلام اندثرت البيوت و انتهى نظام الاسرةالجميع يعيشون في مباني ضخمةلا يوجد تعليماو تجارةاو منافسةاو حروباذن [...]


    14. THE TIME MACHINE begins with the time traveller requesting absolute silence and no interruptions while telling the story of his astonishing journey into a strange and dangerous futuristic world of unfamiliar creatures.And When he had concluded his tale of the little people, his fear of the underground and the dark nights, he was greatly disappointed of his inability to convince his esteemed colleagues of its validity.And Thene endinguh oht what I was expecting.Published in 1895 H. G. Wells had q [...]


    15. "In a moment I knew what had happened. I had slept and the bitterness of death came over my soul."H.G. Wells is such a good writer. Not only does he have an amazing imagination that carries him to impossible places, but he is very skilled at writing. The descriptions in this book are absolutely stunning.The book deals with a British, upper-class white man who has invented a time machine telling all his cronies about it in the smoking-room. He has traveled to the year 802701, and you have to admi [...]


    16. Reading this book has been an eye-opener and is far from what I expected or had in mind. "The Time Machine" is not primarily a novel about time travel, time travel paradoxes and so forth. It is chiefly a speculation on the far future of humanity and the evolution of the industrial civilization.It starts as an almost casual chat by the fireside about the possibility of traveling through the fourth dimension and the invention of a machine, oddly described much like a common bicycle, that can trave [...]


    17. 3.5 stars I didn't have many expectations for this book, and I knew very little about it before going into it aside from the eponymous time machine. But I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by it. Recognizing that it ultimately focuses very little on the machine itself and much more on the time traveler's adventure into the future & the cautionary tale that unfolds due to his findings makes this book a more enjoyable experience. It follows that classic 'unnamed narrator recounting story [...]


    18. Still thrills to this day! Yes, it's dated and compared to other sci-fi it will look like child's play, but there's a genuinely creepy moment or two within The Time Machine. And by now, reading this is sort of like reading a sci-fi history book!A Victorian-era scientist reveals that he has created a time machine and goes on to relate his harrowing adventures into the future, where he meets a race apparently so advanced they've stop doing anything, as well as a monster race of subterranean dwelle [...]


    19. So I don't think there's any disputing that H.G. Wells was a genius and that his work was brilliant back in the day. But I just don't think that it ages all that well. Or maybe society has begun its long and inevitable evolution into the indolent beings Wells' time traveler claims that we become in roughly 800,000 years, and we don't want to think too hard about a narrative that takes some time to get to the point. Probably at some point between the Victorian era when this was written and the ye [...]


    20. 3.5 StarsI feel like this book started off the Science fiction era, and created an enormous number of novels to follow.The Time Machine is about a young scientist who discovers the ability to travel across time with his own invention. Don't ask me the details of how it is possible, I am not a physicist. I am a Biologist. The Time Traveller speaks about his adventure to a group of men, who either believe he did in fact travel through Earth's lifetime or not.I found the topic very interesting, and [...]


    21. رغم أني ضحكت عندما قرأت الرواية للمرة الأولي نظراً لخيال الكاتب المبالغ فيه و رؤيته التي بدت شديدة العبثية و الغرابة للمستقبل، لكني أدركت لاحقاً أن لرؤيته بعض العمق و رغم أن العالم لم ينقسم إلى طبقتان أحدهما فوق الأرض و الأخرى مفترسة تعيش تحت الأرض و تتغذى على الطبقة الأولى [...]


    22. “Any real body must have extension in four directions: it must have Length, Breadth, Thickness, and—Duration. But through a natural infirmity of the flesh, which I will explain to you in a moment, we incline to overlook this fact. There are really four dimensions, three which we call the three planes of Space, and a fourth, Time. There is, however, a tendency to draw an unreal distinction between the former three dimensions and the latter, because it happens that our consciousness moves inte [...]


    23. "Well, we should have been reading Ellison anyway.""But we weren't.""Who would expect science fiction over such a classic? I mean, really.""Doesn't change that you screwed up.""I'm just saying, Ellison is a fine writer. That's all.""And I'm saying; Did you read the right book this time?"--glowers-- "It has a 'The' at the front and everything.""Ok then.""Ok.""You didn't read the illustrated children's book, right?""I hate you.""Whatever, you're up. Go on."*speaker steps up to podium to speak*Gree [...]


    24. J. Verne'in bilimsel serüven romanlarının aksine Wells, bilimsel yaklaşımlı toplumsal eleştiriyi, kitaplarının merkezine koymayı amaç edinmiş. Bu yüzden Verne ile kıyaslandığı bir çok inceleme mevcut. Bilimkurguya yeni başlayan biri olarak türü sevdiğimi söyleyebilirim.Belirli bir mantık çerçevesinde, aşırı tesadüflerden ve absürtlüklerden uzak her edebi türü okumaya açığım ve bu kitap da başlangıç için bence ideal.İyi polisiye iyi edebiyattır mottosu [...]


    25. Group read with the Non-Crunchy Pantsless Classics people!Technically this is the June buddy read whoops.Not sure why I've stayed away from HG Wells as long as I have; I've heard of his stories many times and know they belong to the classic canon -- The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, The Island of Dr Moreau -- but this is the first I've read and I have to say I enjoyed it. It particularly had a hand in urging me toward Jekyll & Hyde for our October read (and I'll lik [...]


    26. بالتأكيد الفكرة غير مسبوقة ورائعة بالنسبة لرواية صدرت عام ١٨٩٥لماذا هذا التقيم إذن فكرة أن اقرأ رواية خيال علمي من المفترض أن تحمل متعة وإثارة من أول صفحة حتى أخر صفحة ثم أجدها مملة لهذه الدرجة بالتأكيد كان شيء محبط جداً أسلوب السرد جاء تقريري وممل وباهت جدا يكاد يخلو من أي م [...]


    27. كم يبدو المستقبل مخيفاً في نظرك يا هربرت جورج ويلزالحمد لله أن ما توقعته لم يحدث و إن كانت صورة الواقع الراهن ما زالت قاتمة


    28. And I have by me, for my comfort, two strange white flowers - shriveled now, and brown and flat and brittle - to witness that even when mind and strength had gone, gratitude and a mutual tenderness still lived on in the heart of men.The Time Machine definitely was not the book I expected it to be. Before reading it, I thought that it would be a short, fast paced book that I would read in one sitting or so. While some of those expectation did come true, this book was so much more than that. It ra [...]


    29. "Humanity had been strong, energetic, and intelligent, and had used all its abundant vitality to alter the conditions which it lived. And now came the reaction of the altered conditions."Read with the non-crunchy classics group, but took forever to finally review.The Time Machine is one of those timeless classics (I was going to do a better pun than this but my creativity stalled, so we'll stop there) that everyone should try on for size.A well-written, entrancing book that's saved by it's secon [...]


    30. "In a moment my hand was on the lever, and I had placed a month between myself and these monsters." What a classic, wonderfully imaginative science fiction sentence. I had read H.G. Wells' The Time Machine many years ago. I remembered enjoying it, and thinking there were some creepy elements to the story. And since that was all I remembered, I decided I needed to revisit this. I'm on a mission to read or reread classic science fiction and horror writers, so I used that as an excuse to bump The T [...]
