The Time Machine and the Invisible Man by Alfred Mac Adam,H. G. Wells



Alfred Mac Adam teaches literature at Barnard College-Columbia University. He is a translator and art critic. Now on to The Invisible Man. Who authorized a book about an invisible man that doesn't even have one scene in a women's locker room?

From Alfred Mac Adam’s Introduction to The Time Machine and The Invisible Man. The Time Machine (1895) and The Invisible Man (1897) are now more than a century old. Yet they endure as literary texts, radio plays, and movies, because they appeal directly to two of our deepest desires: immortality and omnipotence. Of course, what Herbert George Wells (1866–1946) wanted to express in these fantasies and what generations of readers have made of them are two radically different things. Erroneously labeled science fiction, and tricked out in their film versions with all kinds of fanciful devices with flashing lights and ominous buzzers Wells never mentions, they are really tales that enact the author’s theories and speculations about human society, human nature, and natural history in allegorical fashion.

Realist of the Fantastic. The time machine would allow us to escape death and gain knowledge of the fate of the earth, while invisibility would enable us to go and come as we please, under the noses of friends and enemies.

I originally was only going to buy "The Invisible Man" by H.G. Wells, to revisit this great piece of literature and add it to my collection but when I seen this duo, two great classics in one, I was sold! I've heard of "The Time Machine" by H.G. Wells but I had never read it before but from my first time I was really intrigued and at the edge of my seat with the way the story played out. I have these two classics as audio books on my mp3 player but it just didn't feel complete without having the physical copy of the work in my hands.

This is one of my favorite books. H.G. Wells is the best author. I had read his War of the Worlds and First Men in the Moon and some of his other books so I had to read it. I recommend this book for any H.G. Wells fan or just sci-fi fan.
Great read. A must-have for book lovers. It's short yet detailed enough to immerse you into the author's mind. If you are anti-social, reading the Invisible Man would do you well.
