    Book Reading......
    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+

It's another old classic, so some times the writing is a little tough to read. :p
