The War of the Worlds, Hardback Book

Description

Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback Clothbound Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality, colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

From the planet of war they came to conquer the Earth ... The night after a shooting star is seen streaking across the sky, a cylinder is discovered on Horsell Common.

Fascinated and exhilarated, the local people approach the mysterious object armed with nothing more than a white flag.

But when gruesome alien creatures emerge armed with all-destroying heat-rays, their rashness turns rapidly to fear.

As the rays blaze towards them, it soon becomes clear they have no choice but to flee - or die. The forces of the Earth, however, may prove harder to beat than they at first appear ...
