Reviews

  • 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
