The classic tale that is now legendary for causing a panic as a radio play many years later. Wells was fascinated by the "canals" on Mars, and that shows in his story of Martians attacking the world. One place where this story has an edge on so many of the genre is the way Wells manages to use an obvious scientific fact as a resolution to the story. So often science fiction contains much more fiction than science.read more
Quite simply..WOW! This is by all means my favorite by H.G. Wells. I usually don't enjoy books that have little dialogue. This one, however, was so highly detailed without being boring, that I didn't miss the dialogue at all. For those who have only seen the movie versions I highly recommend that you read the book. There is infinitely more detail in the book than the movies, even with the visual effects, could ever touch upon.read more
