    The War of the Worlds has been both popular and influential. It has never gone out of print. It has spawned half a dozen feature films, radio dramas, various comic book adaptations, a television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors. It has even influenced the work of scientists. It is one of the earliest stories that details a conflict between mankind and an alien race.

    Joseph says: "Classic Story-Despite the Reader"
    "A moving read"

    Any additional comments?

    We ordered this audible book to assist our son with his reading assignment. He was able to read the physical book while listening to the story word for word being read to him. His comprehension was greatly improved. We used this as a tool for our son and it worked. He aced his oral presentation and book report. He was able to listen to this extraordinary story being read to him and it helped him appreciate the book. This was also a way to get my son to sit down and get through the book/audio in record time. He has never been able to get his reading assignment done that quickly and enjoy it at the same time. As a parent I would highly reccomend trying this technique.
