The War of the Worlds

| | Comments (0)
Finished reading The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells today.  I've read a couple of his books over the years - The Invisible Man and The Time Machine.  I think I read The Time Machine in high school as part of a project to read a book not written in the 20th century.

So yeah, War of the Worlds.  A little odd.  Quite anticlimactic at the end.  And in answer to my question, it seems you never do find out the dude's name.  In fact I think the only named characters are the women his brother meets (oh and the astronomer at the beginning).  At one point he's talking about some artillery or something being the most powerful weaponry ever seen.  And I'm like "Is that all?" .. and then I remember this was written before both World Wars! heh

I'm going to see if I can get out to Woking next time I'm in London...
