They Made Several Movies Out of This One!

The War of the Worlds – H.G. Wells

Science fiction, English classic, fiction

Rating 8/10

The narrator makes note of astrological subjects and observes Mars closely. After an object, what was a shooting star, lands on Earth and what comes out looks weak to the observers. Unknowing that these Martians will unleash destruction on Earth. It’s a war against the Martians and humanity wins.

This was a unique English classical literature piece that was very science fiction and modern which I do not mind that at all. I enjoyed the novel. I only wished that it was more direct of who the narrator was. It was overall good, but I prefer a bit more direct character in first person, not some narrator in first person. It gets confusing and disruptive when one can’t tell who is recounting the story.
