Publisher's Summary

H. G. Wells' classic science fiction work, first serialized in 1897, is one of many invasion narratives prevalent in British literature towards the end of the 19th century. However, The War of the Worlds not only introduces the extraterrestrial element of brutal Martian forces on the rampage but also explores many other contemporary issues and themes.
Here then is a powerful first-person narrative that grapples with Martians, tripods, heat rays, the behaviour of crowds, love, human resilience and Woking.

A thoroughly entertaining listen

both the narrator and the story had me enchanted till the end. If you've never listened to or read the original I'd highly recommend you do.

Disappointed

Huge chunks left off from the book. Reader was okay, though BBC one was far better.
