    One of the most difficult courses I took in college was a class called Sociological Theory The professor was either brilliant or a total nut, I m still not sure, and one of the questions for our final exam was actually Why Use diagrams to support your response.Ugh, ugh, ugh I walked out of that class with a B and I kid you not, I have never worked so hard for a B in my life I pity the one guy in my class who walked away with an A and don t even want to think about what his social life w One of the most difficult courses I took in college was a class called Sociological Theory The professor was either brilliant or a total nut, I m still not sure, and one of the questions for our final exam was actually Why Use diagrams to support your response.Ugh, ugh, ugh I walked out of that class with a B and I kid you not, I have never worked so hard for a B in my life I pity the one guy in my class who walked away with an A and don t even want to think about what his social life was like during that semester because I know mine was down the tubes.At one point, the kooky prof mentioned The Time Machine as some interesting but not required reading to pick up on the side But since he already had us reading upwards of 1,00...

    Returning to a novel you liked years ago is often a risky business, particularly so when the genre of that novel is science fiction Nothing can age so rapidly as the past s conception of the future, and what once seemed cutting edge may, after fifty years or , appear simply ludicrous.Because of this, I was delighted to fine H.G Wells at least as charming and exciting as I remembered it, the Time Traveler s scientific lecture still intriguing, the journey he describes still convincing, and Returning to a novel you liked years ago is often a risky business, particularly so when the genre of that novel is science fiction Nothing can age so rapidly as the past s conception of the future, and what once seemed cutting edge may, after fifty years or , appear simply ludicrous.Because of this, I was delighted to fine H.G Wells at least as charming and exciting as I remembered it, the Time Traveler s scientific lecture still intriguing, the journey he describes still convincing, and the sociological history he reveals to us of the evolution of the two races, the Eloi and the Morlocks, still as persuasive as it it was in 1895 Okay, I admit, not quite as persuasive as evolutionary biology, but given the rising gap between the rich and the poor still as compelling as a parable and cautionary tale Although I remembered vividly both the origin and appearance of the Eloi and the Morlochs, I had forgotten much of the rest, and what I forgot made the book even bet...

    The Time Traveler invites over his friends and tells them of his theories about time traveling The next day when his friend returns he stumbles in late and then tells them a tale about his journey through time I really admired the writing though it may be dry or dense for some, I think I ve been reading long enough that it wasn t too much of an effort to read through this one The premise was interesting and I was anxious for the Time Traveler when he was recounting his journey to get back to The Time Traveler invites ov...

    I like science fiction that makes me imagine Ray Bradbury s writing is a fantastic example His fiction is imaginative yet, it remains speculative Nothing feels forced or impossible The Time Machine, on the other hand, feels synthetic and false I just could not buy into the story here It is so very underwhelming It s one of those pieces of writing in which the idea behind it causes the work to be celebrated but the actual thing itself, the language, the plot and the characters, are as dul I like science fiction that makes me imagine Ray Bradbury s writing is a fantastic example His fiction is imaginative yet, it remains speculative Nothing feels forced or impossible The Time Machine, on the other hand, feels synthetic and false I just could not buy into the story here It is so very underwhelming It s one of those pieces of writing in which the idea behind it causes the work to be celebrated but the actual thing itself, the language, the plot and the characters, are as dull as dishwater It is mechanical, clunky an...
