Stephen Baxter writes in H.G Well's style that builds on the events found in the original book.
Although the narrative does ramble on a bit and the novel could have benefited from some tightening up in the structure, it's a very good novel and well worth reading.
Reading "The Time Machine" isn't necessary to enjoy this novel; but if you've read "The Time Machine", I'd highly recommend reading this book.
I did NOT want this one to end. We'll written and interesting.
After reading it I ordered all of the Xeelee books. Can't wait to read them.
This is the official sequel to Wells' Time machine.
It's a really great read, full of adventure, amazing escapes and really interesting ideas. Read more
Good, solid, thought-provoking read as seems typical of Stephen Baxter. I found myself stopping to examine and puzzle over many of the concepts and logic more deeply. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Paul C
