The War of the Worlds
by Leonardo, Weston, FL

H.G.Wells is one of the greatest science-fiction novelists. He has written many famous books, one of which I had the pleasure to read recently. The War of the Worlds is good enough for me to start calling it my favorite book.

It amazed me how real Wells makes the book feel. The terror experienced by those during the Martian invasion seemed to take me over as I read.

The story takes place in turn-of-the-century England. A philosopher and his wife are separated as the whole of Great Britain starts a massive movement to escape the rampaging Martians in their gigantic tri-pods and terrifyingly swift heat-rays. The narrator is barely able to make his way in the opposite direction of their frontline. He escapes death in a number of ways and meets others fleeing deserted towns and burning cities.

This has become one of my favorite books and I recommend it to anyone interested in science fiction. The most intriguing feature is that the settings are described in such detail that you can really picture them. I was especially interested in this book because I enjoy reading about situations that are abnormal to everyday life, especially when told through the viewpoint of one in the middle. The first-person narration allows you to become attached to the character and imagine what it would be like if you were in that situation. This book deserves five out of five stars.

And I totally agree with that. :D


The Tempest is an advanced assault vehicle, which carries two heavy Heat-Rays and a Canister Launcher.
