5.0 étoiles sur 5 "...this world was being watched keenly and closely..."
We are in 1898 England. Yep we see something happening on the surface of Mars. Later what looks like a meteor comes to earth. Once we realize the significant of the situation (or think we do) Different people approach the situation in different ways. The true story is how the different people meet the situation.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Classical novel... But not as thrilling as I thought!
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...

Once we realize the significant of the situation (or think we do) Different people approach the situation in different ways. The true story is how the different people meet the situation.

Many people want to equate this story with real potential invasions others as the bad guys vs. the good guys. However from the very first we see that they are the greater (more evolved) intelligence and we are the equivalent of vermin or the ants that are being held under the magnifying glass. From our point of view they seem like cruel creatures, from theirs is indifference. Their way of consuming nourishment is appalling yet look at what and how we eat.

The writing its self is of the time in which Wells lived so the descriptions of our world may seem a little alien to today's younger readers. However, the suspense is still there and the story will hold their attention.

Do not miss the 1953 movie. Even thought it adds more religious overtones it is still pretty much the same story with similar characters. Of course, this one names the narrator and adds a love interest.

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

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : War Of The Worlds (Poche)
Un bouquin acheté suite à l'adaptation avec Tom Cruise, me semble-t-il, diffusée récemment à la tv. On entre tout de suite dans le vif du sujet. Le livre a un côté très réaliste, Wells mélange même des personnages réels à ce recit de fiction. Narrateur à la 1ère personne du singulier. A recommander.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Un classique.., 17 juillet 2014
Achat vérifié(De quoi s'agit-il ?)
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : The War of the Worlds (Broché)
Bizarrement je retrouve un style assez kitch dans ce bouquin, un peu comme l'adaption ciné de 1953, mais c'est ce qui fait le charme de H.G Wells, précurseur et visionnaire… à avoir dans sa bibliothèque. En v.o de préférence.

Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : The War of the Worlds (Format Kindle)
I was disapointed by he book as it is quite static. I won't recommend it as we can always imgine what is going to happen next.
