My rating: 3 of 5 stars


The weakest of the Tripod series.

A great read for a beginner scifi reader, but for an adult with some serious “epic’ness” under their belt, this shows its faults.

Give it to your young teen or preteen and let them enjoy.

This story has been read by me since middleschool, so I’ve got very fond memories of it, and so I judge it ever so lightly.

It is for kids and young adults. Readable by adults, but not to be enjoyed as much.

If The War of the Worlds had not gone our way, this story is what would have come of it…
