my favorite part of the book is how wells describes the way the aliens inject themselves with the blood it's sooo cool. when i read the book i can't put it down.

No one would've believed in the last years of the 19th centuary that human affars where beening watched from the timeless worlds of space!

slow and surely they drew there plans against us!!!!!!!

What I'd like to read is the part where the martians disect the humans. It's in the part of the book which you've just described, but apparently only in the Pearson's magazine edition of 1897- either that, or I've missed it in my book.

It's very interesting to ponder about the land and scenery that comes to mind when Wells describes it and you make a picture in your head. I like that with a book



As it struck, all five fighting machines exsulted, emmiting deafening howls which roared like thunder. ULLAAA!! ULLAAA!!

I finished reading the book [again] last night and I must say the Artilleyman's vision of the future take's some beating. I'm sure if this man were alive today he would definately be a candidate for the Mayor of London.

I have to agree that Wells' descriptions in WotW are amazing - they paint a picture of the story, whilst leaving just enough to the reader's own imagination. One of the reasons I like it so much.

I really liked the part where the heat ray was first used. It really built up to the creepy part that the martians were not friendly. I didn't pay much attention to the book in school because I saw the old movie first. Now I like it a lot and will read it again.

Out of all the martian machines I have seen in the films, I'm sticking with the classic. Really creepy when they first came out of the pit and the heat ray was eerie.

Lol speaking of reading the book at school. I went into a storage closet at school and found a box full of the Wotw novels. I didnt have a copy of the book for myself and was desperate to get my hands on one so I took one out of the box. They were ancient and looked like they hadnt been touched in years any way so I didn't fell particularly guilty, and it seemed a shame to let such golden literature go to waste!
