The main character
The main character of the book is Will.
Because in the hole book Will appears. Also in
every important part in the book.
Will was good, because he tried to convince
the other people that what the tripods was wrong.
Where did the story takes place.
The story takes place in allot of places for example the White mountains, the city, were they fought the tripod, etc.
The plot of the story is that the tripods are taking the people and Will is trying to stop it. But he is just a kid and he is trying to fight against a huge tripod.
It is when they fought the tripod. And they almost died. That is also the best part of the story.
I cant wait to read the other one.

To be clear they were no weapons but in the book picture they show a little pistol.
