I read The Time Machine when I was younger, so I was familiar with the plot. This is the original story, with illustrations added to enhance the telling.
The story itself is one that well crafted, and piques your interest. No matter what your opinion on time travel is, the ideas presented in The Time Machine are creative and entertaining. The details paint a picture of what goes on, and it is these details that are drawn out in the added illustrations.
These pictures are nicely drawn and very colorful. They help show the characters and events in the story. The colors are subdued, which lends an air of mystery and reflects the uncertainty the narrator has in retelling what he has heard.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
