What are you currently reading? The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells – I’m only a few chapters in. I finished The Time Machine on Friday, but I didn’t start this one until Monday and I haven’t spent much time with it. It’s interesting so far, I’ve just been running myself a bit ragged.
What did you recently finish reading? The Time Machine by H.G. Wells – I really enjoyed this book. I needed to keep my phone with me while I read so I could easily access my dictionary app, but it was still a pretty quick read . . . not because of the short length but because of content.
I’m fascinated by how the book was written – with the exception of the beginning and the very end, the book is written by the narrator quoting the Time Traveller. It’s basically one really long re-telling.
The other really interesting thing about the book is that half of the story is pure speculation. When the Time Traveller meets the creatures of the future, he develops an entire back story for their existence, and while it’s intelligently deduced, it’s still not proven. There’s a lot of room for the reader’s imagination to go wild . . . I know mine did as I was reading!
This is the kind of book that makes me wish I was part of a book club because there are just so many things I’d love to discuss!
What do you think you’ll read next? The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells – Yep, keeping with the whole H.G. Wells thing. I’m really enjoying his storytelling . . . and honestly, I have so much going on right now that the short length is appealing as well.
