The War of the Worlds
by H.G. Wells
A story so gripping and so authentic that it is more popular now than it was when first written.
It was 1898 when Wells crafted his seminal tale of grotesque tentacled Martians and their terrifying tripod fighting machines commencing their invasion of Earth from a landing site in a sandpit at Horsell Common, southwest of London.
The Hollywood blockbuster "War of the Worlds" directed by Steven Spielberg, and starring Tom Cruise (released in June 2005) was based on this novel.
