Summary

The Martians were on the rampage all across Queen Victoria's Britain. Nothing man possessed could stop them. But then the huge fighting machines began to slow down and lumber to a halt. One by one, the Martians inside the giant machines began to die. Soon there were just scattered and failing remnants of the once-mighty tripods wandering here and there among the derelict monuments. Even the red weed was dying as Mother Earth began to reclaim her own. The human survivors became emboldened, and they emerged from the hiding places intent on fighting back.

A decent story

I enjoyed it as being a big fan of the original War of the World's and of course Jeff Wayne's Musical version.

The only thing for me was at times the Narrator's accents were a bit jarring and pulled me out of the story on occasion.
