    He may not have told the whole truth that Halloween morning, but his shock and bewilderment were genuine enough. The narrator escapes back to his house, where he tells his wife what he has seen. Wells wrote, mentioning his novel. At his home, he discovers that his wife has also survived.

    All that time the Martians must have been getting ready. As it bulged up and caught the light it glistened like wet leather…. The curate eventually becomes hysterical, and the narrator is forced to knock him unconscious. As the steamer pulls away from the shore, the brother watches a spectacular fight between a warship—the torpedo ram HMS Thunder Child—and three Martian fighting-machines.

    And some, maybe, they will train to hunt us. Wells asks concerning fictional and flesh-and-blood dictators, but perhaps readers will better analyze the world and its wars after reading The War of the Worlds. The narrator hides alone in the ruins for six days. Culture and society Edit It has been theorized that the Martians' asexual physiology, completely devoid of food processing, sleep and mating concerns; is what ultimately resulted in their complete lack of emotions as humans commonly understand them. Are we such apostles of mercy as to complain if the Martians warred in the same spirit?

Martian (The War of the Worlds)

Wells' science fiction novel The War of the Worlds which is often considered as the foremost example of the "alien invasion" subgenre the Martians have been portrayed quite differently in subsequent works of fiction by a myriad of authors.
