The Time Machine - H.G. Wells
The Time Machine was the first SF book I've ever read, and I could only say that I loved it very much. I absolutely love the sophisticated writing of H.G.Wells--the skillful way he presents his ideas and how he manages to include so much details into his thoughts without overdoing it and confusing the reader. This book made me think about modern literature in general, and how difficult it is these days to come across a book that has well developed ideas, beautiful narration and writing.

I consider this thought-provoking book a must-read, and would recommend it to anyone who would like to read a beautifully written story that would affect their imagination.
