The novel ' The Time Machine" by HG Wells is about the main character traveling in time. The time traveller (main character) tells a story to a group of friends about the events that happened in the future. When, the time traveller travels in time, he has an adventure, he saves a surface creature (eloi) named Weena from drowning and he builds a time machine and creates the theory about the fourth dimension. Throughout the story the timed traveller portrays many characteristics such as, kind, smart and adventurous.

In the beginning of the novel, the time traveller (George) is introduced as smart. In the first chapter of the time machine, George talks to his friends about the theory of the fourth dimension. Explaining to them that it is very possible to have a fourth dimension. A quote from the text, ' there are really four dimensions, three which we call the three planes of a space, and a fourth, time" there are four dimensions, height,width, and length and lastly time. You are able to move up and down and side to side, while doing all of this time goes on. So, it is very reasonable that there can be four dimensions. The time traveller came up with this idea, he also built a model of the time machine, then made a replica of it but bigger. Therefore, with all this information the time traveller is proven to be smart.

The time traveller also portrays the characteristic, kind. After traveling into the future, the time traveller discovers eloi. Elois are dumb, lazy and act like children. The time traveler finds a drowning eloi, he goes out of his way and saves weena ( the eloi). The text states ' i caught the poor mite and drew her safe to land." The time traveller is kind because he saved weena when the other eloi didn't do anything to save her. Since the eloi are lazy, they didn't want to saved her. The time traveller didn't have to save her, but he did. In other words, the time traveller is nice.

Throughout the novel, you can clearly can tell the time traveller is adventurous. He has traveled through time thousands of years into the future. The Time Traveller goes for a walk up a hill to see what the world is like in the year 802,701. He is soon alone because the little people are too weak and lazy to walk that far.The text states ' from which I could get a wider view of this our planet in the year Eight Hundred and Two Thousand Seven Hundred and One A.D. For that, I should explain, was the date the little dials of my machine recorded." This proves he went into the future. It also states ' As I walked I was watching for every impression that could possibly help to explain the condition of ruinous splendour in which I found the world--for ruinous it was." This was him exploring the world. He is adventurous in many others ways to, like he had to find his time machine, due to the fact that the underground creatures ( morlocks) took it, without being adventurous or curious he would have never came to the future, for that reason George the time traveller is curious and adventurous.

In conclusion, the time traveller shows off his character traits such as, good hearted, intelligent and lastly but not least, brave. He has showed us that he is good man by saving a life. He has also showed us that he is smart and brave by building his time machine and traveling into the future. With all these characteristics showed throughout the novel, the author made me believe the time traveler is the best character. As said before, the time traveler is kind, smart and very adventurous. These traits he has showed makes him my favorite character. I hope he is your favorite character.
