review Ì The War of the Worlds ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook characters ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ H.G. Wells Summary The War of the Worlds This book has DirectLink Technology built into the formatting This means that we have made it easy for you to navi I didn t listen to the novel novel but I listened to a radio adaptation performed by some fan favorite cast members of Star Trek Leonard Nimoy is amazingIt was cool as hellAnd hilariousBecause it doesn t really have a Big Battle or anything that humanity has to do to overcome these invaders They just show up and we watch in horror as they thoroughly hand us our assesEventually they justdie off because regardless of their superior intelligence firepower they didn t get their shots before they landed on EarthSoBasically humans were saved because Mars was full of anti vaxxers And if it happened on Mars who s to say it can t happen here Perhaps the true moral of the story is that by unlocking space travel we can rid ourselves of some of our less desirable brethren by letting them roam around the universe uncheckedI like to think that this story had a happy ending for than just the Earthlings An LA Theatre Works full cast performance featuring John de Lancie Meagan Fay Jerry Hardin Gates McFadden Leonard Nimoy Daryl Schultz Armin Shimerman Brent Spiner Tom Virtue and Wil Wheaton

Wells Summary The War of the Worlds Gate the various chapters of this book Some other versions of this book may not have the DirectLink technology bui No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man s and yet as mortal as his own that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water A beautiful opening to the book but I must say the Martians did a very poor job of scrutinising us human chappies and our little blue planet considering what transpires later Ah but I must not spoil the book even though I imagine most people reading this review all three of them already know how it ends Which brings me to my next point if you know the story of The War of The Worlds uite well already but have not actually read the book I urge you to read it especially if you are a science fiction fan I don t think there are many books in the pantheon of sci fi as important as this one This is the book that launched the alien invasion sci fi trope and even manages to remain one of the best examples of itHG Wells was literally light years ahead of his time the mind boggles to think what he was able to conceive in the 19th century alien invasion time travel genetic engineering all these when TV sets are still decades in the future If historical importance is not much of an inducement for you and you are just looking for a thumping good read Mr Wells is also at your service here The War of The Worlds is often thrilling skillfully structured and narrated with some unexpected moments of philosophising and surreal dialogue I generally find that Wells wrote much better prose than most of today s SF authors doHe even included some element of hard sf into his novels here is an example from this book It is still a matter of wonder how the Martians are able to slay men so swiftly and so silently Many think that in some way they are able to generate an intense heat in a chamber of practically absolute non conductivity This intense heat they project in a parallel beam against any object they choose by means of a polished parabolic mirror of unknown composition much as the parabolic mirror of a lighthouse projects a beam of light Yes you may already have a fairly good idea of The War of The Worlds beginning middle and end without ever reading the book but you would miss Wells marvelously immersive and visual storytelling and the subtexts embedded in the original texts The scene of naval battle between the military s ironclads and the Martian tripods is vividly depicted and should please fans of military sf and general badassery The slightly surreal chapter involving the artilleryman is a particularly interesting depiction of people who always seem to be brimming with ideas plans and suggestions but never actually do anythingThe story of The War of The Worlds is so potent that Orson Welles 1938 War of the Worlds 1938 radio broadcast became famous for causing mass panic although the extent of this panic is debated Still even moderate panic is an amazing achievement for a radio dramaThis book has of course been adapted into movies several times Unfortunately a straight adaptation complete with the Victorian setting does not seem to have been made The most recent adaptation being the 2005 Spielberg directed movie with Tom Cruise being the usual Cruisian hero dodging Martian heat rays like nobody s businessFor this reread I went with the free Librivox audiobook version very well read by Rebecca DittmanI hope to eventually read all of Wells sci fi and perhaps his mainstream books also Anyway never dismiss HG Wells sci fi as old hat because he invented the hat and it is still superior to most of today s headgear I have a bee in my bonnet about today s freuent and incorrect overuse of literallyA uick note about the endingview spoilerThe ending is the mother of all Deus Ex Machina I suppose Wells may have written himself into a corner a bit here as Victorian Brits are never going to be much of a challenge for giant tripod riding aliens armed with heat rays and weird smoke guns hide spoiler
