The War of the Worlds

The War of the Worlds
The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells

Even though there were passages and descriptions that are overly lengthy, as a whole, the story moves at an effective and at times breathless pace. Highly affecting! I am so impressed with how it set up so many prototypes, from physical descriptions to potential advanced technologies, for modern alien/alien invasion stories. A real classic!

  1. I agree. Fantastic and nearly timeless story. But…overly wordy and very dry. If it was a clean and fresh idea of now…and if the right author wrote it… Thankfully the idea of it pervaded into some strong sci-fi over the years with simply the influence of the original.
