The first, or one of the first, science fiction classics. Hence, a must read and worth its place on the Quest & Adventure list. It's a very readable novella that cuts right to the chase. The bulk of the book is set in the year 802,701 AD and tells an enjoyable story of survival in the future. Yet I think I liked the unexpected last bit the most, where the Time Traveller witnesses the demise of the Earth. Short, but very beautiful. Am looking forward to more Wells.
