The War of the Worlds | [H. G. Wells]

The War of the Worlds

It was 1898 when Wells crafted his seminal tale of grotesque tentacled Martians and their terrifying tripod fighting machines commencing their invasion of Earth from a landing site in a sandpit at Horsell Common, southwest of London. It is a suspenseful, entirely believable account of how one man and his family react and survive amidst the initial incredulity, and then the awakening terror, panic, and despair, that overtakes millions of Londoners as the Martians slowly advance.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story so gripping and so authentic that its popularity has grown over generations. It is more popular now than it was when first written.

It was 1898 when Wells crafted his seminal tale of grotesque tentacled Martians and their terrifying tripod fighting machines commencing their invasion of Earth from a landing site in a sandpit at Horsell Common, southwest of London. It is a suspenseful, entirely believable account of how one man and his family react and survive amidst the initial incredulity, and then the awakening terror, panic, and despair that overtakes millions of Londoners as the Martians slowly advance.

The Hollywood blockbuster War of the Worlds, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise was based on this novel. However this audiobook is not associated with the movie. This audio version is completely faithful to the H.G. Wells novel.
