Paperback Castles

I live on a page in a book. My name is written in a curly and swirly font, along with long descriptions of sleepless nights and filled bookcases.

The War of the Worlds (Modern Library Classics) - 'H. G. Wells',  'Arthur C. Clarke' "The War of the Worlds" is probably known as Wells' most original and prestigious work. I find that rather odd as I really had to struggle to finish it, even though it is a comparatively short book of only 180 pages. I just kept losing my focus and rereading the same sentences over and over again.

The plot itself is exciting enough, and the fact that Wells invented the whole martian-invasion myth is really astonishing. However I just found the writing to be too jumpy and shifting in its style, which ultimately ended up ruining the entire reading experience for me.
