This is the case of Wells’s “The Time Machine”, where the narrator voice is a secondary character that merely reports what the protagonist tells. This kind of framed structure could create a certain distance between the reader and the events, but this doesn’t happen in this book, since the narrator just introduces the time traveller and let him talk with his own voice. And the way he does it is so vivid that in the mind of the reader every element and emotion described becomes an image, despite the dated language. Actually, the latter contributes to the suspension of disbelief. In fact, we find ourselves transported not only to a distant future in which the adventures recounted by the traveller take place, but also to the end of the nineteenth century, when he is telling them to his friends.
This way, reading is also turned into a short but intense journey.

I recommend that you read this book and for me I will read more of H.G. Dakota's books.
This is the first Amazon Classic I have read. The formatting and editing were excellent, which made it an easy, pleasurable read. This has often not been the case with other classics I have read.
