The music used for each episode is simply awful - loud, shrieking and annoying. This would be a great production if the music were edited out.
This was clearly a serial, which is not the issue. The problem is that the producers left in all the lead in and credits for each installment, which becomes extremely annoying by the end of the recording.
The sounds effects were also a over the top for my taste.
I've heard other recordings of this story that I enjoyed more.
I first listened to this dramatised version of The War Of The Worlds when I was a young lad, my dad recorded it on a very old spool tape recorder. I kept it for years, listening to it when I was aloud to, until the tape recorder broke. To listen to it again just brings back memories. Its the best version available. Thanks Audible, I'm now going to wear my ipod out.

This is a muscular and violent production as radio dramas go and its all the scarier and more vivid for it. The production values are strong and the cast is excellent. I'd give it 4.5 if I could, the only downsides being the slightly melodramatic opening titles and the outdated female character. That said, its still a treat.
