H.G. WELLS, (1898)The War of the Worlds, Penguin Classics (2005)

One day something strange occurs: a weird thing lands near London. This thing starts moving, it is an alien. The main character tells us the events. He turns on the radio and hears that these aliens are in the whole world. One of them goes to his house. We read how the main character managed to escape from the invasion while he explains to us the war between Martians and humans and its incredible end.
In my opinion this is a very recommendable book, it is very easy to read and you enjoy the awesome main character´s journey. On the other hand, you will see many characters and how the war affects them. Finally, it is also very disturbing to see the possibility of a war between Martians and humans. However, as I said before, it is a very good book. Perhaps its worst feature is that it is a little slow.
