H.G. Wells

The Time Machine / La Machine à explorer le temps

Read the early sci-fi classic in English and French. This work of speculative fiction takes a scientist to a dystopian wasteland eons in the past. There, the time traveller witnesses a conflict known in any era, including our own. Odéon Bilingue makes reading in two languages fun and simple. All paragraphs are numbered and appropriately placed side-by-side. Save for a few exceptions, all paragraphs begin and end on the same page, thus eliminating unnecessary page-flipping.


Odéon Livre brings French-language literature to an American audience. While many of our featured works have been translated into English, we focus exclusively on texts’ native versions. Plots and characters can indeed be translated, but even the most faithful interpretation will lack the power and beauty of French.
