My first review :P

Warning, plenty of spoilers :)

I didn't know before this story in the original, so I have to admit that the Time Machine plowed my brain, like a herd of hurtling buffaloes. I still don't know exactly what to write, so maybe I'll start from the end. Ending made I tried to fall asleep at night and haunt me only one thought: "No, no, no, it cann't end like this, the world cann't moving towards end." Why even aim for something and exist when in the future is nothing?

I think I've never read a book where the action goes so far into the future and Wells vision seems to me terribly frightening. Everything I've read so far about the future world, totalitarian governments, hunger games, big mazes, zombies or worms from outer space is a small piece of cake, because in each of this dystopian vision there are people and they are struggling in some way for their humanity, fighting for a better tomorrow...

A better tomorrow isn't in the vision of Wells. Man becomes either Morlock, ape from the underworld, or grub for the Morlocks, farmed like cows in the meadow... And later there is nothing left...

It's really sad.

Done! I'm sorry for all the mistakes :)

One of my very early reads. Don't remember how young I was but surely was younger than 12 or 13 because I used to have nightmares about this book for many years. It got even worse when I saw the original movie for the first time and saw how scary the Morlocks looked. Come to think of it, I might have seen the movie before I read the book but it left a mark on me so I understand what you are saying about the despair you felt after reading this story.
