Overview

This book include active Table of Contents and it's very easy to navigate.

The War of the Worlds is an early science fiction novel which describes an invasion of England by aliens from Mars. It is one of the earliest and best-known depictions of an alien invasion of Earth, and has influenced many others, as well as spawning several films, radio dramas, comic book adaptations, and a television series based on the story. The 1938 radio broadcast caused public outcry against the episode, as many listeners believed that an actual Martian invasion was in progress, a notable example of mass hysteria.

About the Author

Herbert George Wells, better known as H. G. Wells, was an English writer best known for such science fiction novels as «The Time Machine», «The War of the Worlds», «The Invisible Man» and «The Island of Doctor Moreau». He was a prolific writer of both fiction and non-fiction, and produced works in many different genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. He was also an outspoken socialist. His later works become increasingly political and didactic, and only his early science fiction novels are widely read today. Wells, along with Hugo Gernsback and Jules Verne, is sometimes referred to as «The Father of Science Fiction».

While the E-Book addition did not alter or enhance any of Wells text, I can say though that overall text is pretty dated. If you've seen the movie or heard of the famous radio broadcast in the 1930s most of the surprises in the novel have already been ruined for you and the actual technology mentioned in the book itself just seems soooo dated to these days. It doesn't surprise me that the book is still taught, but what does surprise me is how different people's opinoins of the text are. I was hoping to read a few decent reviews on the novel, but I have yet to really find anything even here. I guess I'll just be relying on what I hear from the host of an AM radio show I listen to here in Atlanta, The Book Report, that is broadcasted on Saturday nights - the show usually features several novels and author interviews. I'm really curious to hear what the commentator, Elaine Charles, will say...
