The War of the Worlds (book review)


The War of the Worlds, by H.G. Wells, is a science fiction story set in the 1890's. It is the story of an invasion of Earth by Martians and a struggle for survival alone in a world of fear and hunger. There are two parts to the story, The Coming of the Martians and The Earth Under the Martians. The first book, as you might guess, is about how the Martians came to Earth and how the invasion began. The second book tells how the main character struggled to survive in a world that seemed devoid of human life after the Martians attacked.

I enjoyedThe War of the Worlds a lot. It was more than just a science fiction book. It was also a story of adventure and terror that kept me guessing until the end!
