Convince us to read the book: This book is creates a story around a real historical event (Orson Welles's "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast.) It has elements of suspense and also elements of humor. I thought that this book could have spent more time talking about Orson Welles's radio broadcast because I thought that the part of the book in which it talked about the broadcast was the best and most exciting part of the book, although it was only three or four pages at the end of the book. I would recommend this book to someone because it was very enjoyable to read , but wasn't the best book I have read.
Memorable or Forgettable: The parts of this book that were memorable to me were the historical aspects of the book.
Cover:  The cover of this book wasn't very tempting to me but it also didn't deter me to read it.
