I was not aware of this recording and purchased it out of curiousity. Ben Kingsley has made only a few recordings of spoken books and the early ones were a mixed bag - "A Passage to India" working very well whilst his recording of "David Copperfield" was not so succesful. "The Time Machine" fell between the two but I hoped for a little more enthusiastic reading. There is little of HG Wells on audio so what we have we should be grateful for.
