    "Skip this version"

    I was extremely disappointed with this 2017 dramatized version of War of the Worlds which is one of my favourite sci-fi audios . It seems like a cheap production lacking good sound effects and therefore was not even thrilling to listen to . Plus I got slightly confused with the characters . And this version was rather short time wise. The last dramatised version 2007 by the BBC was vastly superior in sound effects and atmosphere and character build up and is still available on audible .

    "A slow decent into madness"

    So much better than that film with the same name starring Tom Cruise.

    Set in England during the Victorian era.

    Another great BBC audio drama adaptation. Superb.

    "No one would have believed..."

    That this audiophile could be so good. I will admit, I was expecting it to be a word for word read through of the original source material, but was utterly pleased at the great performance that was presented.

    The sound effects went well with the story, and the pace was perfect. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a different take on the classic story.

    "Brilliant and well done."

    Outstanding work and cast from "The War of the Worlds." Had the classic version of this but this version does a good job. Love the drama and the sound the effect that it had.
