by | Read by Gerry O'Brien

Science Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1897

Narrator Gerry O'Brien stretches out the word "fear" to emphasize the shock on planet Earth when Martians arrive. The story is perfect for an audiobook as it lets O'Brien express a range of emotions as the protagonist describes the horrific invasion and his desperate fight for survival. Few other characters speak, but O'Brien conjures a memorable, harder voice for the monologue of the artilleryman who plots out humanity's bleak survival. His pride in his strength is evident. Wells's takes on news and cultural views may especially interest listeners who are familiar with the national panic created by this story when it was first aired on the radio in 1938.
