The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel written by H. G. Wells and originally published in 1898. It is the first account in literature of an alien invasion of Earth and was highly influential in the science fiction genre.
The novel is divided into two parts, the first describes the arrival of the extraterrestrial beings and their first actions on Earth, while the second relates the invasion itself. The first part focuses on the description of the Martians and their ships, while the second describes the resistance of the humans and the war against the invaders and the Martians' attempt to survive in the terrestrial environment.
It is an extraordinary story, atypical and, above all, far ahead of its time. The novel created the theme of contact between humans and extraterrestrial beings, which has become one of the most recurrent resources in science fiction.
The War of the Worlds has been adapted on numerous occasions to media such as films, comics or video games.
