How does War of the Worlds (the book) end? Spoilers about the film

Is it like in the film? Where the aliens just can't breathe our air for too long?

It's exactly like the film, but the aliens don't have a problem with the air...they were killed by disease (virus).

I thought the disease (in the film at least) was in the air/water.

Yeah, the movie reminded me of what an anti-climatic ending the book had.

Speaking of which, I would swear that I read somewhere that someone majorly involved with the movie stated that this movie wasn't going to end the same way as the first movie. Granted this time it was bacteria, but I was expecting something completely different and felt somewhat misled. Did I make up that statement?
