Apr 19, Lucas Garrett rated it it was amazing. Wells is very descriptive when talking about the town setting and its characters. You can see elements of The Time Machine take shape in this story. My only regret is that the story ended on a cliffhanger. Aside from that, a great read. I highly recommend it. Jul 11, Kevin Wright rated it really liked it. In some ways The Chronic Argonauts reads like an outline for a larger story. This doesn't make for a less interesting story, rather, it just comes off as abbreviated.

I like how this story is darker than most time travel tales, it's almost like a Lovecraft novella in the sense of tone. This is a great read. You can see the seeds being planted for The Time Machine which is pretty cool. I couldn't help but notice the similarities to another, more modern, time travel story, Doctor Who!
A mad genius In some ways The Chronic Argonauts reads like an outline for a larger story. A mad genius type character called The Doctor, with a time machine who is lonely and yearning for a companion. The sounds an awful lot like our beloved Doctor. I have to believe this was an inspiration for the original TV series. Mar 06, Madhulika Liddle rated it it was ok. The ruined Manse, once the home of a man who was supposedly murdered by his two sons, has long been taken over by nature—but one day, out of the blue, an odd-looking stranger arrives and makes the Manse his home.
Nobody knows who he is or how he arrived, but his manner and his appearance soon make Dr. And then, one night, when the entire populace of the village marches to the Manse, ready to do him in, they arrive in time to see Nebogipfel vanish—along with the priest, Rev. Elijah Cook—into thin air.
Right in front of their very eyes. The basic premise of The Chronic Argonauts is interesting.
The Chronic Argonauts by H. G. Wells (2011, Paperback)
The twist in the tale, the connection between past, present and future, is good. What I would have liked much more would have been a longer, more detailed book. How Nebogipfel constructed his time machine though there is some expounding of a theory behind time travel.
What he encountered in different times. What adventures Rev Cook experienced in his travel with the original Chronic Argonaut. Dec 04, Stephen Lee rated it really liked it. I actually really liked this one. It was short and full of surprises. Because it was so short, easy to get through in one sitting. I'm not sure why this has such a low average rating, because I really enjoyed this short story. A precursor to 'The Time Machine. Aug 03, David Brown rated it really liked it. The Chronic Argonauts is an intriguing early short story by H. It could be either a prototype or a prequel or even sequel to Wells' later novel The Time Machine.
I found it interesting that Wells chose to tell this story of time travel out of order. The reader gets the beginning of the tale, next the ending, then finally the middle of the story as recounted to the narrator by Reverend Elijah Ulysses Cook, of his encounter with the mysterious chronic argonaut Dr. Nebogipfel, including on The Chronic Argonauts is an intriguing early short story by H.
Nebogipfel, including one of those mind bending time paradoxes that always make my brain hurt. A must read for fans of Wells, time travel or adventure stories. Jan 17, Denise rated it liked it.
