Was pretty awesome, better than the movies no doubt :-)
A Timeless classic, yet difficult There was a lot that I really enjoyed about the book. Better understanding of what the martians were up to, the descriptions of their anatomy, the machines. But I found it difficult to fully understand much of the imagery. H.G. Wells refers to a lot of British known facts, which makes sense, further he describes things using common day experiences for the late 1800s. Of course this is all to be expected given the publication date. My fix for was this was a lot of skimming, especially when he describes the various cities and landmarks that I have never seen nor intend to look up on wikipedia, suffice it to say the looked strange and miss placed in the path of the martians.
Alien invasion of Victorian England. It was a good book with a lot of action and suspense. The plot was strong and often made you think. Adding real towns and suburbs helped the reader relate. However, at times the narrator rambles on. Also, it felt somewhat predictable. Overall, a good way to spend a nice afternoon.
I like this book.
