War Of The Worlds Was Read This Weekend.

Just came home from an impromptu vacation. Finally read War Of The Worlds.

In it, Wells describes a race of beings that literally becomes parasitic while thinking themselves independent of what they ingested. One would think they’d figured out there was only enough for a certain amount, but who knows.

I’d like to see a book based on the alien point of view. I’d wonder what they think, how they came to their conclusion, and what drove them to act in a kamikazi way (no way back, so it seemed, for them).

And while I’m not sure I’d want to see a religious pov on what they did, I’d very much like to see how they came to view Earth (and Venus) as necessary for their survival.
