    Decent for what it's intended for, which was to hook a young audience into a classic work. In this particular instance, I'm not sure it really translates for our modern young audience as a 'hook' as the simplified version skips some of the more thought provoking details. The illustration is fun and a good introduction to an older style for my boys.

    Even though I've never read the actual "War of the Worlds," I bet that the actual story is just as captivating. "The War of the Worlds (Classics Illustrated)" is takes place during the end the nineteenth century in a little town near London. A "meteorite"comes crashing down. A man,most likely a farmer, approaches the "meteorite" and loos down inside the crater. Funny thing is that this "orange meteorite" starts unscrewing itself. After that, war broke out.

A man,most likely a farmer, approaches the "meteorite" and loos down inside the crater. Funny thing is that this "orange meteorite" starts unscrewing itself. After that, war broke out. Following that is the adventure of a man as he tries to run and tell everyone about the martians. The is a part where he and another soldier who survived the attack meetup by chance. They talk about their life for a while. Then they say their farewells and they both had in different directions. The ironic part is that they meet up again after day and soldier almost mistakened him for a martian. The soldier was probably a symbol of good luck. He did survive, and so did his wife. The part that really surprised me was that the martians died from bacteria. The powerful things can die to such small insignificant things. The Martians also teach us, always be prepared. The technology of the martians also make me think of how human technology is way behind. At that time. A person looking from the future must think that martian technology are... "Ancient stone age tools."

    bought this for $5 at a used book store. brought it home excited, and was told we already owned it, a double feature of it and Invisible Man, in fact. oh well, at least im reading it now. what a great book! a serious page turner, probably good to read aloud (come over & listen to our record of the radio play). suspenseful! bought this for $5 at a used book store. brought it home excited, and was told we already owned it, a double feature of it and Invisible Man, in fact. oh well, at least im reading it now. what a great book! a serious page turner, probably good to read aloud (come over & listen to our record of the radio play). suspenseful!

    I know it's a simplified version for younger folk, but they made unnecessary changes and skimped on the artillery man's ideas of the future. and some of the turns of phrase tried too hard and we're just plain weird.

    Decent for what it was: a simplified retelling for a younger audience. It did encourage me to read the original and I liked the illustrations.
