What the community says about The Martian Chronicles
- "The Martian Chronicles is a great selection for anyone looking for short story fantasy collections. It consists of 28 separate stories, divided into three acts and explores interactions with Martian lifeforms in an incredibly engaging way. I highly recommend The Martian Chronicles for anyone interested in this genre."
- "The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury is one of my favorite classic science fiction books of all time. It is set in 1999 when the people of Earth send spaceships to Mars for the purpose of space exploration and colonization. It is a vivid and beautifully written book that provides a glimpse into a futuristic world that still captures our imagination today."
- "This book fits great into this topic category. It is has so many exciting, strange, intriguing short stories that you need to have an open mind about the what is out there in the Universe to enjoy reading this classic. This book has some censored versions and other that are not censored with colorful language. "
- "Ray Bradbury has written a number of classics, and The Martian Chronicles is no disappointment on that front. It's a collection of shorter stories that are all part of a greater whole, and they comprise three acts that paint an incredible science fiction scene of how life on Mars would really be. The authors picture of the alien world is stunningly advanced for having been written so long ago, and it's an interesting predecessor to stories like The Matrix. I consider it a must-read for any fans of sci-fi."
- "Ray Bradbury is one of the best SF writers I've read. This is in the same vein as Dan Simmons etc. I remembered reading these as a kid and thought I would share them with my kids. I picked them up and read them again before giving them to the kids. We've both enjoyed them and anyone who enjoys the SF genre or wants to introduce kids to it should check these out."
- "I'm really not into the theory of life on other planets but I still found this to be an interesting read. Without getting too far into what the book covers it went into a lot of great detail about life on Mars. If you are into space and aliens I would recommend this."
