Nigel Gore is the perfect narrator for H.G. Wells's classic science fiction tale. The story-within-a-story structure requires Gore to be credible and earnest so that listeners will believe the tale's unnamed narrator. There are few audiobook performers more earnest and credible than Gore. As the tale becomes more fantastic, his calm, cool delivery keeps listeners grounded. When the story turns into a dire warning about the way humanity will surely destroy the earth unless we make major changes, Gore does not sound like a scolder but like a leader with our best interest in mind. This new production is perfect for longtime fans while being accessible to those lucky enough to discover this work for the first time. A.R.F. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
