Summary:

Lake On The Moon: The War Of The Worlds Audio Drama Sequel. A New Martian Menace Invades Earth in Volume 2 of The Martian Diaries.
When a Martian cylinder lands on Horsell Common, Ogilvy the astronomer barely survives a deadly heat-ray attack and wakes up in a hospital inundated with casualties as the first War of the Worlds alien invasion rages. He alone discovers the real significance of the Red Weed brought to Earth by the Martians and dispatches vital evidence on board HMS Thunder Child, but it is lost when the ship is attacked and sunk by Martian tripods. Years later in 1919, in the aftermath of the Great War and Spanish Influenza, an insidious new alien menace emerges on Earth from the long forgotten Red Weed. A dangerous and daring plan is devised as Ogilvy, George (HG Wells' narrator) and other original characters strive to combat the devastating Martian plague threatening to extinguish all life on our planet. Don't miss this compelling continuation of H.G.Wells' iconic book in the exciting second volume of The Martian Diaries science fiction series, featuring the original characters and a bespoke musical score.

    As a representative of AudioBookReviewer.com here is a review on Lake of the Moon written by H.E Wilberforce. This tale of aliens invading the United Kingdom in the early 1900s was well written. This book took me back to my younger years of reading HG Wells writings. Therefore, it is easy to say if you enjoy classics like War of the Worlds this book is well worth the read. However, it is not a well-done audiobook thus making it a poor listen.    The book itself is a well written book, however the performance was not done well. Harry Preston was the main narrator and Terry Thompson was the narrator of the prologue and epilogue. Oh, how I wished these two would have switched narration jobs. Preston's performance felt rushed. He was able to give each character their own voice but not consistently. Thompson however, for his short performance was pleasant to listen to and was well paced in his delivery.   Editing, quality, and production was terrible. The presence of music and Foley work in the background was so distracting that it took me twice as long to finish this book. These elements were not even consistent. Some chapters would have music throughout while other chapters had random starts and stops of music. In my opinion there is no place for Foley work in audiobooks. That is strictly for audio dramas. Lastly, the sound quality of the music sometimes overtook the narrator's voice making me lose parts of the story. The music hindered my enjoyment of a well written book.  Disclaimer: This Audiobook was provided free of charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher in exchange for a non-bias, honest review.

    Very enjoyable sequel to The Day of the Martians, and taking Wells' vision further. Exploring the real significance of the Red Weed and with more than a gentle nod to time travel, this really is a fun sci-fi read that feels authentically written by Wells.
