DaptationThis daring portrayal of aliens landing on English soil with its themes of interplanetary imperialism technological holocaust and chaos is central to the career of H G Wells who died at the dawn of the atomic age The survival of mankind in the face of vast and cool and unsympathetic scientific powers spinning out of control was a crucial theme throughout his work Visionary shocking and chilling The War of the Worlds has lost none of its impact since its first publication in 189. I love these two stories Reading them is a lot rewarding than watching them as movies only because of the visions others have sometimes don t gel with mine The recent War of the Worlds came close to the way the planet ended up looking like in my mind I love creating the picture and scene myself That is in a good book The Time Machine is one of my favorites and I have had many a child I tutored read it also War of the Worlds too though it is pretty gruesome the way Wells wrote it

Hing journey beyond the conventional limits of the imagination first appeared in 1895 It won him immediate recognition and has been regarded ever since as one of the great masterpieces in the literature of science fictionThe War of the Worlds H G Wells's science fiction classic the first novel to explore the possibilities of intelligent life from other planets is still startling and vivid nearly a century after its appearance and a half century after Orson Welles's infamous 1938 radio a. I really enjoyed The Time Machine In a way it was a very simple story Wells didn t batshit around with science he just went in said he built a time machine and you dealt with it Don t worry about how it just happened I wish this happened with modern sci fi writers but unfortunately most nerdy people unlike myself don t like that They want to know how the time machine was built To hell with gamma rays they don t do zipThe War of the Worlds was similar The narrator admitted he didn t know what was going on the black smoke or how the Martians flew or what the deal with the Heat Ray was And at the end the scientists didn t really know either There was a bit sci in the sci fi but it was still easy to readUnfortunately I didn t enjoy The War of the Worlds as much as The Time Machine It dragged in places and at points I just wasn t sure what Wells was going on about But still an easy fun read

    I had read The Time Machine some years ago and found it just as enjoyable on a second readThe War of the Worlds is my favorite between these two stories It's science fiction set in our past rather than our future and as such presents all sorts of interesting asymmetries the Victorian era didn't have firepower that could compete with the Martians' firepower etc But than that Wells simply tells us a good story
