Finally got my chance to teach this book!
- "I loved War of the Worlds and V for Vendetta. The stories were really interesting and the ideas and themes too."
- "V for Vendetta, War of the Worlds, Bloody Chamber- no one ever teaches these and i think they have a lot of cool things going on for them."
- "I think it's up to you to teach V for Vendetta or War of the Worlds [...] I think War of the Worlds is just a classic since it introduces us to the 'first' alien story -- they don't change too much after that, and this was written in the 1800's. So yes, while a bit of a flat book, it's a must read just for the story itself."
- "I thoroughly enjoyed 'Frankenstein,' 'War of the Worlds,' and 'V for Vendetta.'"
- "[...] I thought War of the Worlds was the most boring reading-- sorry! I know it's your favorite [...]"
- "War of the Worlds was a great one, as many are familiar with Americanized versions of the story and this one highlights many British elements that differ."
- "Keep War of the Worlds"
- "Keep V for Vendetta and War of the Worlds, both interesting reads that add a great variety to the course, you don't find many courses here that let you explore more modern works of British Literature."
