LearnOutLoud.com Launches Complete ’War of the Worlds’ Audio Page
LOS ANGELES, June 23 -- LearnOutLoud.com, the premiere Audio Learning Resource on the Internet, presents the “War of the Worlds” Audio Resource Page (http://www.learnoutloud.com/waroftheworlds). This web page is a portal to audiobook editions of H.G. Wells’ original 1898 novel and includes every “War of the Worlds” dramatization, including Orson Welles’ famous 1938 radio adaptation.
These audio versions are available on the traditional audio book formats of CD and cassette and can also be downloaded from a number of online retailers and listened to on a computer or portable audio device. “With the release of the new film version of Steven Spielberg’s ’War of the Worlds’ on June 29, there has been a renewed interest in the novel, its history and audio lineage,” said Jon Bischke, Founder and CEO of LearnOutLoud.com.
The most notable adaptation was a radio broadcast written by Howard Koch and performed by Orson Welles and The Mercury Theatre on Halloween Eve in 1938 that simulated the alien invasion from the perspective of a special-report newscast. The broadcast was so realistic in its breaking-news format that it caused actual panic in many of those who tuned in not knowing it was a dramatization. Some listeners even fled their homes or covered their bodies to protect themselves from the Martian gas raid. Since this historic broadcast, “War of the Worlds” has been dramatized and updated for many different eras, including a 1970s musical concept album and a recent adaptation that covers the Martian attack from the perspective of National Public Radio.
LearnOutLoud.com has conveniently gathered all these “War of the Worlds” audio resources into one place and provides an informative essay with summaries of many of these versions. In addition, an author page for H.G. Wells has been created (http://www.learnoutloud.com/hgwells) which features more than 50 audio books of classic Wells’ titles, including “The Invisible Man” and “The Time Machine.”
LearnOutLoud.com (http://www.learnoutloud.com) is an audio and video learning portal that provides visitors ways to learn beyond traditional boundaries by increasing awareness of audio and video learning material and by suggesting ways to fit learning into everyday life (during commutes, while exercising, etc.). The website offers an extensive catalog of nonfiction and classic fiction titles organized into categories such as self development, language learning, business, literature, and much more. In addition, LearnOutLoud.com’s catalog contains a number of educational podcasts, and the company has made its own foray into podcasting with the launch of the first podcast focused on audio learning (http://www.learnoutloud.com/podcast).
Whether someone is looking to gain the edge in any aspect of their lives or just wants to be entertained by listening to classic fiction such as the “War of the Worlds,” LearnOutLoud.com is leading the audio learning revolution that is freeing up access to knowledge and the methods of attaining it so that all that needs to be asked is: “What do you want to learn today?”
