9781784872113: The War of the Worlds (Vintage Classics)

No one would have believed in the last years of the 19th century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinized and studied. Yet across the gulf of space, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us. Then, late one night, in the middle of the English countryside, they landed.

About the Author:

H.G. Wells (1866-1946) was a prolific writer with a diverse output, of which the famous works are his science fiction novels. These are some of the earliest and most influential examples of the genre, and include classics such as The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds.

Review:

"Variously interpreted as a commentary on evolutionary theory, British imperialism and Victorian fears and prejudices, War of the Worlds tells the nail-biting tale of one man's struggle to track down his wife during an alien invasion. Included are some of the most vivid scenes of London in literature" * Independent * "Sharply satirises the human refusal to look beyond men's petty concerns...wonderfully suggestive" * Daily Telegraph * "The cosily familiar settings emphasise the horror of the invasion...spookily prescient of the World Wars. Science fiction often dates badly; not so here: hard to believe this was written in 1898" * Observer * "An astonishing mind and a visionary imagination" * Daily Mail * "The classic tale of alien invasion, and still the best" * The Times *
