The War of the Worlds Review ✓ 102 UelsThe War of the Worlds is a prototypical work of science fiction which has influenced every alien story that has come since and is unsurpassed in its ability to thrill well over a century since it was first published. You would think that as Man grows in intelligence he would likewise grow in morality But you would be wrong Or at least that is what history teaches us About a hundred years before Harvard professor Robert Coles wrote his now famous article The Disparity Between Intellect and Character HG Wells made much the same observationAt the end of The War of the Worlds the unnamed narrator returns to his house and sees the paper he had been working on before the war began It was a paper on the probable development of Moral Ideas with the development of the civilizing process 194 There s one for the wastepaper basket As with much science fiction the aliens in The War of the Worlds reveal about us than about themThroughout the book Wells compares Man with the lower animals And it becomes increasingly uncomfortable At the start we are microbes under the Martians microscope We might be able to pass over the metaphor without much thought if only he didn t go on to compare us to monkeys lemurs dodo birds bison ants frogs rabbits bees wasps and rats animals we exploit or exterminate without compassion The narrator doesn t fail to make the connection between the Martians treatment of humans and our treatment of animals When he discovers that the Martians regard human beings as food he is able to shift his perspective and see the human diet from the point of view of an animal that is typically regarded as food I think that we should remember how repulsive our carnivorous habits would seem to an intelligent rabbit 139Moreover it is not only animals that we destroy Other humans are also fair game And before we judge of them too harshly we must remember what ruthless and utter destruction our own species has wrought not only upon animals such as the vanished bison and the dodo but upon its own inferior races The Tasmanians in spite of their human likeness were entirely swept out of existence in a war of extermination waged by European immigrants in the space of fifty years Are we such apostles of mercy as to complain if the Martians warred in the same spirit 5If only moral growth went hand in hand with intellectual growth But apparently evolution doesn t work that way So a look at the Martians is a look into a mirror It is also a look into our own future And it is a future difficult to look upon The Martians are ugly And not just on the outside Evolution has turned them into little than heads Thanks to natural selection their bodies function with marvelous efficiency They need not eat sleep or engage in sexual intercourse They communicate by telepathy Through Darwinian adaptation they lost what they did not need to survive and developed what they did need And what they needed was intellect not character Heads not hearts Is this where our species is headed Wells was an advocate of Darwinism and if the Martians represent the future of Man then The War of the Worlds must be read as a cautionary tale The Epilogue supports this interpretation If the Martians can reach Venus there is no reason to suppose that the thing is impossible for men and when the slow cooling of the sun makes this earth uninhabitable as at last it must do it may be that the thread of life that has begun here will have streamed out and caught our sister planet within its toils Should we conuer 198 199Should we conuer If we don t want to become blood sucking heads without hearts we had better not On the contrary we had better learn compassion for those over whom our superior intelligence gives us power Surely if we have learnt nothing else this war has taught us pity pity for those witless souls that suffer our dominion 166

The War of the Worlds Review ✓ 102 When an army of invading Martians lands in England panic and terror seize the population As the aliens traverse the country in huge three legged machines incinerating all in their path with a heat ray and spreading noxi. I didn t listen to the novel novel but I listened to a radio adaptation performed by some fan favorite cast members of Star Trek Leonard Nimoy is amazingIt was cool as hellAnd hilariousBecause it doesn t really have a Big Battle or anything that humanity has to do to overcome these invaders They just show up and we watch in horror as they thoroughly hand us our assesEventually they justdie off because regardless of their superior intelligence firepower they didn t get their shots before they landed on EarthSoBasically humans were saved because Mars was full of anti vaxxers And if it happened on Mars who s to say it can t happen here Perhaps the true moral of the story is that by unlocking space travel we can rid ourselves of some of our less desirable brethren by letting them roam around the universe uncheckedI like to think that this story had a happy ending for than just the Earthlings An LA Theatre Works full cast performance featuring John de Lancie Meagan Fay Jerry Hardin Gates McFadden Leonard Nimoy Daryl Schultz Armin Shimerman Brent Spiner Tom Virtue and Wil Wheaton

H.G. Wells ´ 2 Summary

The War of the Worlds Review ✓ 102 Ous toxic gases the people of the Earth must come to terms with the prospect of the end of human civilization and the beginning of Martian ruleInspiring films radio dramas comic book adaptations television series and se. This was not anything like the Tom Cruise movie so be warned If you re expecting an action story about a divorced union container crane operator with a 10 year old daughter you ain t gonna find it here They changed like 99% of everything around As far as I could see there are only two things which are the same one is that the Martians attack Earth in these COOL THREE LEGGED METAL 70 FOOT HIGH HEAT RAY KICK ASS DEATH MACHINES and two is that they die in the same way which I won t say here because that would be a giant spoiler but really it s a bit feeble but I guess could happen because they came from Mars which don t have bacteria I don t do biology so I don t know if a whole PLANET can not have bacteria Seems like also they couldn t have had YOGHURT as well but HG Wells does not make this clear Nor Stephen Spielberg either Now this book version I think is not the book of the movie I think it came first so that may explain why the movie is better because really this book is lame Yes realistic because like the main guy is no Tom Cruise but less action What happens is that the Martians land and like fry everyone up with the DEATH HEAT RAY and send out the BLACK SMOKE to finish off anyone left alive and the main guy hops around and hides and eats really gross stuff and just sees stuff As for instance he sees the army get a lucky shot in and kill the one single Martian but then like his buddies just wipe out the whole British army Boom heatray zzzzz GONE Oh yeah the book is set in England which I thought was strange Why not America like the movie Anyway just when the guy has realized that from now on we re just going to be MARTIAN FRENCH FRIES and kept in cages when not heatrayed then the Martians just like shrivel up and die End of So in my opinion I say watch the movie Or you could go for the prog rock version lol Oh I guess I did give away the end Okay SPOILER sorry But everybody knows this story It s like saying oh in the end Dracula dies with a steak in his arse It s a known fact
