Science Fiction • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

When H.G. Wells wrote THE TIME MACHINE, could he have foreseen an audiobook on DVD, with full text and illustrations unfolding like those in a book as narrator Dick Hill reads? Hill does a reasonable job conveying the melodrama, emotions, and philosophical points as he retells the Time Traveler's dinner party anecdote about a distant future in which humans have evolved into the frail Eloi and the carnivorous Morlocks. Hill's reading is brisk and lively, giving the story a spirit of adventure. But putting Hill's reading on DVD might disappoint listeners. The type on the screen is readable, but there are too many screens full of words—illustrations are scarce. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
