This book is probably the very first demonstration of so many familiar science fiction motifs being used and re-used today. Originally written to be taken as fact, the book caused a bit of a stir in its time. It's a must read for any science fiction buffs that want to see how the genre got started. It could also be considered a spiritual prequal to War of the Worlds.
