The best, and most classic, novel of time travel I have ever read is H. G. Wells' The Time Machine. Written in the late 19th century, this classic novel describes the adventures of an inventor with his time machine as he tours the near and distant futures of Earth and its (waning) civilisation. This is a very well written, imaginative, descriptive, and possibly, scientifically plausible, story.

Time and Again, by Jack Finney. Simply a masterpiece.

"Night Watch" by Terry Pratchett. You do kind of need to read earlier books in the series for it to make real sense, but it stands alone as an excellent book, it is very movingly written, and damn funny too.

Andy's CV is a recognised work of fiction, it's true. I believe it's a GCSE setwork.
