  • Just nostalgic

    By Hello360jr
    I honestly remember the first time I read this book and it was amazing the perfect blend of science and fiction and realistic for the time in which it takes place I haven't read this book in years and I forgot all about it
  • Not to interesting

    By prohardrelic
    the book is pretty boring from my perspective, it takes to many chapters to one event to happen
  • Still the Best

    By Dwardeng
    As far as alien invasion stories go, this is still unrivaled. Both the original movie and Spielberg's remake are ok, but not up to the lofty heights of the book. Besides, both movies have such corny endings, which I think Wells would have despised.
  • Great book

  • Catching

    By UnbarredRabbit
    I do not read very many books, because I just cannot find one that catches my attention, but this book is great! 9/10 would recommend.

  • Decent Book, But...

    By BobDoesBillyDoesVansvensnoi
    I don't like how many pages there are, I'd rather read a series of books with less pages than one book with a lot of pages.
  • The movie was better but...

    The movie was better but the book was still great! The movie is my favorite movie of all the movies I've seen! Watch the movie and read the book!
