    "timeless classic, excellent narrator"

    I've read War of the Worlds several times and wanted to hear it read as I commute. It was very well done and excellent narration by Mr. Pollak. Have not found other narrations by Pollack but hope that there will be more soon. Minor problem with chapter changes that i assume were editing issues?

    "Brilliant story shame about the narrator's accent"

    Brilliant story, shame about the narrator's American accent though. He could also have taken some time to find the English pronunciation for place names.
