YMMV: The Time Machine
- Alternate Character Interpretation: Pretty much stated directly in the book. Are the Morlock's monsters? Or the last true vestige of humanity, caring for and consuming herd animals just like people do today?
- Hilarious in Hindsight: One copy of the book from the 1970's advertises on the cover, "The Science Fiction Masterpiece That Predicted the Rise of the Flower Children!"
- What Do You Mean, It's Not Political?: Discussed in-universe, as the time traveller explains that his theory of the Eloi and the Morlocks might as well be just a result of his seeing everything from a political point of view. However, he calls it the most plausible one.
