John Christopher ¿ 4 reviewFor some aircrafts or something on wheels At least double the number of legs for God s sakeWhen I first heard of this series I thought for God s sakeWhen I first heard of this series I thought was some kind of unofficial seuel to Wells awesome classic The War of the Worlds Well now I know it is not but it is still a damn fine ripping yarn The White Mountains depicts a future where alien overlords have been in charge of our planet for hundreds of years This is not an origin story so we don t know what happened when the aliens showed up and how they subjugated the human race To keep humans docile the aliens weld mind control caps on the adults heads The year when the story takes place is not mentioned there is even a possibility that the tripods may be man made rather than aliens I imagine will be revealed in subseuent volumes of this Tripods series The White Mountains is told from the point of view of Will the thirteen year old protagonist One day Will decides to run away from his home town to avoid the Tripods Capping process when he comes of age He is accompanied by Henry a cousin he dislikes but insists on oing along on their journey they are later joined by a bright French boy they call Beanpole because Will and Henry can t pronounce Jean Paul Their destination is the eponymous White Mountain where Will is told by an apparently crazy old man there is a community of rebellious uncapped people The book is entirely about their perilous journey to this mountainI wish I had read this book as a wee lad of fourteen or younger I would have loved his book to bits and immediately read the remaining three volumes As an adult reader I really enjoyed it but I wish it was edgy and dark with lots of swearing This series is Robert Crumb.
