Teaser Tuesday: The Time Machine by H.G.Wells


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read

  2. Open to a random page

  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

  4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


My teaser this week comes from the classic The Time Machine by H.G.Wells. It's probably a book I should've read back in school but for whatever reason (being placed in remedial reading, for example) I didn't. My mom and I have been watching Bravo's Work of Artand LOVING it (except for the disgusting, repulsive, perverted, pornographic and nauseating "shock art" episode which nearly made me quit watching the show altogether), and on ce of their challenges was to create cover art for the reissue of a classic novel. The picture above show the winning design, and I was inspired to read the book because of it. Here then, are my teasers:

'As I stood there in the gathering dark I thought that in this simple explanation I had mastered the problem of the world - mastered the whole secret of these delicious people. Possibly the checks they had devised for the increase of population had succeeded too well, and their numbers had rather diminished than kept stationary. That would account for the abandoned ruins. Very simple was my explanation, and plausible enough - as most wrong theories are!'
