Classic sci-fi

The War of the WorldsThe War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Martians are landing in England and this is one unnamed man's account of what happened before, during and after.

I noticed this classic was a free e-book and decided to give it a try since we were in the middle of a move and I didn't have access to my books and wasn't allowed a library card yet. Written in the late 1800's, it was good, really good. I can see why it is considered a classic.

I didn't give it 5 stars because sometimes it seemed to drag and other times I got lost in his dialect and geography. But otherwise his descriptions of the Martians and their machines and weapons was imaginative and entertaining.
