    "Better than the movie."
    What did you love best about The War of the Worlds (Dramatized)?

    Best version of the story.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not a big fan of War of the Worlds but was running out of stuff from The Colonial Radio Players so got it not expecting much. I was surprised by how good it really is.

    "Best Adaptation!"
    If you could sum up The War of the Worlds in three words, what would they be?

    High caliber adaptation!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The War of the Worlds?

    One of the most memorable moments in CRT's adaptation of of H.G. Wells War of the Worlds is the initial landing of the Martian cylinder. The peripheral comings and goings of all strata in British society coming to have a look. And then, getting to see something.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene in this CRT production is hearing the heat ray and seeing it my imagination. The fight between the Martian war machine and HMS Thunderchild was excellent too!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment that captured my emotions was the chat between Pearson and the soldier of Artillery. Listening and understanding the hopelessness of the soldier's point of view, his reality and plans for the future, and knowing they'll really come to nothing.

    Wells's writing and intent shine through CRT's production. I've never heard a better example of the famous author's work before.
