Publisher's Summary

Following the initial Martian invasion of England, President Theodore Roosevelt tries to prepare the United States for the potential of another Martian incursion. As the possibility of a stronger invasion is increasingly clear, the US government tries to mobilize nations to share information and technology to defend humanity. Newly minted ordinance officer Andrew Comstock has been placed in charge of developing new technology that has to be tested on the fly in a race against time if humanity is to survive.

The Great Martian

What did you like best about this story?

The plot has engaging characters, suspenseful plot, exciting battles. I can't wait for many many sequels. It's a great addition to the War of the Worlds universe. Great audiobook.

I received a free copy in exchange for my review from AudiobookBoom

Very fun, just what I was looking for.

Any additional comments?

I love retro sci-fi, and this story did not disappoint. I was already a fan of the original, and it was great fun to hear the story continue. I particularly enjoyed the blending of actual historical characters and inventions with the sci-fi elements introduced by the Martian Invasion.

Once again, Ray Greenley did a fantastic job with the narration. His clean delivery and characterization really helped me experience each character as individuals. It is like having a full cast of friends (and enemies) in my ear.

Note: I was given a copy of this audiobook for review. That being said, I would have sought this audiobook out on my own anyway.I look forward to the next in the series.

Very interesting!

There were a few things that I really enjoyed about this book, the original concept is well known, but I think this gave us a few more things to think on, and enjoy. :)

The ideas to fight the Martians were pretty cool, and the journey from 'believing they're coming back' to them actually doing just that is exciting. The characters are well developed. Although the death of a loved one really can make you choose a different life path I was glad that the story evolved as it did.

I've listened to a few of Ray's books now, and this was a very refreshing change to the other style of Sci fi, more realistic and enjoyable. (the martians POV was just great, to listen to and to think on, would they really think of us so badly... I guess so. I also think this was truly a good performance because of that, lots of different characters for Ray to dialogue, and they were great to listen to and easy to distinguish.

Totally worth the credit, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you to both writer and narrator.
