Gelesen von Cliff Stone

(3,75 Sterne; 6 Bewertungen)

An original masterpiece of alien invasion, The War of the Worlds (1898) conjures a terrifying race of Martians who devastate the Earth and feed on their human victims while their voracious vegetation, the red weed, spreads over the ruined planet. After the novel’s hero finds himself trapped in what is left of London, despairing at the destruction of human civilization, he discovers that life on Earth is more resilient than he had imagined.
