    I was SO happy to see Audible have this now, I first heard it on the Radio and loved it, it's my favourite Neil Gaiman story, Dirk Maggs and the cast (including Christopher Lee, Cumberbatch and Natalie Dormer) bring it to life in an exceptional way. The soundscapes and effects add so much value, this is the BBC at it's best. Brilliant.

  • "funny, adventurous and youthful"

    8 of 8 helpful votes

    Much has been said about radio 4 in the reviews, which might actually discourage some people from buying this. I'm a teenager who doesn't listen to radio 4 and this is the greatest and funniest audiobook i've ever had the pleasure of listening to. This book was made for young people so if you are one I can't recommend it highly enough!

    This is the "so-called" reason the government won't reveal all they know about UFOs. The panic from this broadcast was significant. Although Orson Welles, Mercury Theatre and the Columbia Broadcasting System couldn't "soap the windows" of their listeners the night before Halloween back in 1938, they could annihilate the world for them. And that's exactly what they did with this radio adaptation of H.G. Wells' famous novel, War of the Worlds.
