Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Arguably his best book, H.G. Wells has portrayed and painted a vivid image in reader's minds what an invasion from Mars would be like. This book is a must for lovers of science fiction classics. I believe that this book will linger in peoples dreams as it has on mine. The only fault H.G. Wells made in this book was make the triumphant victory of mankind too abrupt. On one page the Martians have destroyed London, and the next they are all dead from bacteria. Although this little abruptness in the story in which i find slightly disturbing, I recommend strongly this book to everyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Repetitive and boring How could any writer take a subject as potentially thrilling as an invasion from Mars and turn it into such tedious and dull blather? He repeats the same descriptions over and over until you can't wait for it to end. This is one of the few instances in which the movie far outdoes the book.
