Amazing book, amazing illustrations. Worth every penny.
Such a good quality book! Looks really expensive. It was an anniversary gift and my bf loves it. I’ll be ordering some more soon!
I'm glad that I haven't read The War of the Worlds before making this purchase, because reading it for the first time through this book was a pleasant and thrilling experience. First, the paper and printing quality are insanely high. The paper is very thick and the colors are vivid. Second, the illustration concepts and their production really add to the experience of reading the book. As for the story, well, this is a 100 years classic. I loved it, just like some of the other H.G. Wells books that I have already read. I'd love to see more like this from Bitmap Books.
The material used feels like high quality, the print is excellent and the artwork helps you immerse yourself in the story.
The print quality is astonishing (as always)! I like the content and the chapter's progression. I'm not very familiar with "the war of the worlds". I just knew about Orson Wells telling that novel live on Radio. So for me, it's a real discovery. Far better than I thought. I liked it very much!
