Just finished No. 20.
I read H.G. Wells War of the Worlds.
I have been a fan of the older movie version of this book. Not the new Tom Cruise one.
Anyway, the book is quite different from what I remember the movie to be.
In the book the invasion happens strictly within England, while in the movie it is throughout the whole world.
It also takes place in what I assume is an older time frame. I get the feeling that most of the travel is still done by horse and carriage.
The book is told throught the eyes of one man, and his struggles to survive.
I think I would grade it a B/B+
