Publisher's Summary

It is an INVASION! H. G. Wells' classic story of Martians invading an unsuspecting and unprepared world continues to thrill and terrify listeners around the world. Following strange explosions on the surface of Mars, metallic cylinders crash in the English countryside - objects that carry hideous aliens possessed of deadly weapons and a rabid hunger for human flesh. No army can stop these monstrous hordes, no weapons can harm them - a terrified humanity watches helpless as cities are reduced to cinders and ash. There is no is no future...our world is lost - unlessa?S

I raised my hands muttering "Yes!"

This was my second listening by H.G. Wells after The Time machine and boy. . . this one didn't let me down either.

The narration of this book was different in the way it was very emotional, dramatic and they even used music to add to the experience. For me, it just hit every right spot. I actually cheered and raised my hands muttering "Yes!" at one part of the book (you'll know when it happens), much to the surprise of my fellow co-workers (the poor things only listen to the radio or music. . . such a waste of time).

But anyways, I found both the story and the narration to be just the right thing for me. This book was six hours of great emotions as I at times cheered or grieved the fate of man but also the story gave me many things to ponder afterwards about humanity and its place in the world.

If I would usually wear a hat (like a good english tophat), I would now take it off in token of appreciations for the master of fiction. . . H.G. Wells.

Truly a good listening.

Hilarious but becoming really annoying!

If you can't get enough of Harry Enfield and his spoof adverts this is the listen for you. Where this reader got his pronounciation is a complete mystery. Initially it is very funny and then, becoming tired of trying to work out that "marse" means "mass", "warrl" means "wall" and "fallowed" is "followed" etc. etc. it became increasingly irritating. This may be an attempt at pure BBC English as it used to be. However, it goes so far over the top that one wonders if it is a joke. A poor choice of a version of this classic on my part!
