Publisher's Summary

What would happen if Martians landed on Earth - and none of our weapons could stop them? H.G. Wells's timeless masterpiece - which spawned many movie adaptations - imagines this frightening scenario. The horrifying bug-like extraterrestrials, which can wipe out entire crowds with a single heat-ray and poisonous gas, first appear in the English countryside... and then wreak havoc.

Narrated by an unnamed protagonist who flees home to seek out safe ground, this terrifying tale creates a shockingly realistic vision of what might happen if fearsome, technologically superior aliens attacked us.

How can she make THIS story into a lullaby

I’m just going to read it myself to prevent falling asleep in the car ☹️. She is sooo boring!

Difficult to finish

I can see why this material is used for source material.
The content and narrator seemed to lack any passion or character, and by that I mean it was very monotone.

Hardest part to get through is the narrator reading Ooo-La, over and over again. I actually needed to stop for an hour after this.

I'll doubt this will get any repeat listening on my device.

Excellent! truly enjoyed this title

another classic story by Wells, and expertly narrated by Ms/Mrs Collins. this story plays out nicely with vivid descriptions, and a clear sense of just what sort of fellow was retelling these (fictional) experiences. Thoroughly enjoyed this title and narration was very good.

Really good read

Not sure why, but I feel like the narrator's voice would be the voice of Melanie from the book 'the girl with all the gifts'. Very good read

Enjoyed the book, strange production choices.

Enjoyed the story, it is set in my local area which was fun. I really liked the narrator but the production decisions were poor. There is no need to re-introduce the book at the start of every chapter (a feature of the second half) or announce the end of each chapter.
