Introduction

War of the Worlds H.G.Wells uses language feature to illustrate that the humans were not prepared for the attack that the Martians had planned for years as 'no one would have believed' that there were aliens, this clearly shows that the humans were really not bothered about the aliens as they carried on with their various concerns and didn't bother about the news of the aliens. As we were being watched 'keenly and closely by intelligences greater than mans yet as mortal as his own' shows that humans were far of the intelligence of creating anything such as Martians or spaceships.

His job is to work at the docks, he comes home sleeps and does the same for every other day he also has no bother on what he eats as he tells his children to order takeaway. As in the film we could see that Ray didn't have a good relationship between him and his son Robbie as Robbie doesn't have any manners for his dad as he calls him by his name and not by dad, he has no sympathy for his dad. ...read more.

In the opening chapter of H.G.Wells, the war of the world's movie 2005 and the radio script they all started by the speech that H.G.Wells had written to get the audience started with tension 'no one would have believed'...... this is what H.G.Wells had prepared for us and in the beginning of the chapter and the movie or radio broadcast.
