Classical novel... But not as thrilling as I thought!
le 25 novembre 2014
I had hated the last "War of the worlds" movie and thought it was high time to read novel to find out what was the original story. It was indeed better than the movie, but at the same time I must admit I felt quite bored half of the book. I really found the writing style heavy at time and too descriptive. It did help to picture the actions and the characters as we are basically inside the head of the hero, but it did not make the reading fun. I finished the novel only because I wanted to check the conclusion and the reason why the martians failed, but it was difficult... I still think it is a good thing to read it, rather than watching the cinema versions only, but you might end up
