The War of the Worlds: Part One

The War of the Worlds Part One The Curiously Specific Book Club

We’re kicking off Series 2 with The War of the Worlds by H G Wells – the classic tale of Martian invasion that spawned radio shows, movies, musicals and even an ‘immersive’ experience. But where is the original book set?

Lloyd and Tim take on one of the most potent myths of the 20th century: HG Wells’s The War of the Worlds. In part one they take you to the site of the first Martian cylinder, heading next to the Narrator’s house (via the house Wells wrote the novel in), and then down to Pyrford Common, scene of the terrifying encounter with not one but two Martian tripods.
