War of the Worlds


I just finished reading War of the Worlds and it was so interesting! This might be the nerdy part of me, but I'd totally recommend it! It's short and easy to get through so it's something that's good when you don't want to donate days of your life to those thousand page books. For those of you who have seen the movie, let me just say that it's cooler than the movie for a few reasons: The book was actually written at the turn of the century so it all takes place in the early 1900's. Also, it's written from the perspective (and in the tone) of a intellectual philosopher of the time so it's written in a factual way that makes it different and refreshing. And finally, the book has nothing to do with Tom Cruise.

haha, I like the part about nothing to do with Tom Cruise. Thats so cool, I'll totally want to read that over Christmas Break and maybe The Host too.
