Publisher's Summary

The War of the Worlds by Herbert George Wells (H. G. Wells) was published in 1898 at a time when he wrote a series of novels related to a number of historical events of the time. The most important of these was the unification and militarization of Germany. The story, written in a semi-documentary style, is told in the first person by an unnamed observer. It tells of the events which happen mostly in London and the county of Surrey, England, when a number of vessels manned by aliens are fired from Mars and land on Earth.

So many narrators!

I was surprised to find different narrators for almost each chapter ranging from professional actor quality to what sounded like students in training. The story was good, but the varying quality was a distraction.

Terrrrrrrrrible narration.

The storyline is great. Highly recommend, but NOT this set of narrators. There were several different people reading, in no special order. The sound quality is pitiful and most of the readers stumbled over words. Even on high volume it was sometimes impossible to hear.
