Book Overview

Paul Daneman stars in a full-cast radio dramatization of H. G. Wells seminal sci-fi classic

They came in cylinders as dreaded falling stars; they were the ultimate killing machines.

When a Martian spacecraft crash-lands near Woking, mankind is terrorized by aliens in tall, armored capsules that stalk the countryside on three legs. The frightening machines wreak havoc on London and the Southern Counties with their heat-rays, and survivors are driven underground.

Yet it all began in the calm of an observatory.While scanning the heavens, scientist John Nicholson (Paul Daneman) sees a shower of meteorites heading towards Earth. But what he is witnessing is, in fact, the beginnings of an invasion. Soon, dense black smoke wipes out vast numbers of the population, and Nicholson tells how he was plunged into a paralyzing nightmare of stark terror and utter destruction.

Martin Jarvis, Peter Sallis and Anthony Jackson are also featured in this thrilling six-part, full-cast dramatization of H. G. Wells classic novel.

Now released forty years after its first broadcast in 1967, The War of the Worlds is an immensely atmospheric recording based on one of the most influential stories ever told.

This CD release also includes a detailed sleeve note recounting the making of the radio adaptation, Read More chevron_right

   This is a good book for ESL learners...but
This one is a good book. The students get the point and enjoy the characters and the plot. My only complaint with the book is that it does not model proper English sentences and grammar. Nevertheless, because I wanted to be familiar with gramatically flawed milestones in Western literature and because they were simply trying to get meaning from the book, the fact that it was completely unnecessary, did not matter. Student felt very proud to have read a book from cover to cover. After that we watched the Tom Cruise movie with subtitles and were able to critique aspects where the book and the film differed. The book provided for my purpose and I would use it again. Be warned, however, if you choose to use it in an academic setting, that the grammar is imperfective.

   An excellent read for a 2nd grader
My son is required to read 20 minutes a day. He read quite quickly, and I am always on the lookout for suitable books for him. There are thousands of books out there, but the challenge is to find high quality books that keep his interest. I love the classical stepping stones '' series. My son read several books in this series and found that they made masterpieces accessible to young readers while being true to the spirit of the originals. He has read Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, and The Jungle Book. I look forward to seeing him relax in this wonderful series, enjoying the other books.
