Time Machine by H. G. Wells

Time Machine by H. G. Wells published in 1895 an ebook of 75 pages

After reading this book and seeing the 1960 movie, I can say that the movie was very close to the book. Still H.G. Wells wrote this book in 1895. A time when automobiles were a rarity and electricity still a wonder. What an amazing display of vision on his part. 
But what if the book isn't about science?
After reading this book, I ran across a commentary that made the point that Wells may have written this book as a veiled comment on the British caste system. A system where the idle elite ruled and were served by the common working man. 
What if time had turned the tables and the Morlocks still served the idle Eloi, but now dined on them as well.      Oh my word! The very idea!
