A great scholarly resource for the book and Wells 28 Mar. 2010
By Leonard Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wells was very advanced in his use of science in fiction, and the critical essays here, including useful science articles both modern and contemporary to Wells, help frame his story. It's remarkable how well informed some of his ideas are, including degeneration, time as a fourth dimension, and the death of the universe by entropy - some of it was a bit off, but he was working with the limited science of the time. I was forced to revise some of my prejudices toward the scientific literacy of the period.

Wells' novel doesn't require the use of scholarly footnotes/annotations as much as other Nortons do, but the essays included here are very useful in understanding the context for such an important novel in science fiction and literature in general. Here's hoping Norton is able to do more scholarly editions of science fiction literature.

The Wonderful Mr. Wells 3 Jun. 2009
By Barbara F. Kelley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Time Machine by H. G. Wells is my favorite science fiction book of all time. I highly recommend it to anybody who likes the idea of time travel. I also recommend the movie with Guy Pearce, the newest of the two Time Machine movies. It is more realistic than the Rod Taylor version. I do not normally like remakes, but the remake is much better than the first (at least in my opinion, it is). This Norton Critical Edition of The Time Machine was released earlier this year (2009), and just in time for me to do my research paper on it for my college Science Fiction class.

Excellent edition 19 Dec. 2013
By Felipe Angeles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Time Machine does not need any rating. We all know about its importance, and its enduring power to fascinate readers. The edition, on the other hand, is exceedingly useful. It provides the reader with a wealth of information, as well as earlier versions, scientific articles by Wells and others on the possibility of involution and time travel, and so forth. Scholarly, but accesible. Any educated reader will be grateful for the job done by the editors.
Critical and complete edition 9 Dec. 2012
By Guilherme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The most interesting feature in this edition is that it features all variations of the story, as Wells developped it. It starts with "The Cronic Argonauts", that is very different from the final version (and has not been completed by the author), and you can follow all the evolution of his writing style. It also features articles and reviews, from all around the XX century. If you like this story, this is the edition to purchase!
Fabulous 29 Oct. 2013
By GailBell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the story, the book, the feeling of being transported via my own time machine to another age. Owning this book, especially in combo with the movie is a great feeling from my childhood.
