Title
The Martian Chronicles
Author
Ray Bradbury
Rating
Eh.
Summary
A series of short stories written in 1950 about a future history of the colonization of Mars.
Enjoy?
It was ok for me, meaning that I generally do not read science fiction. I found some chapters more interesting that others. Bradbury writes with great imagination and upon close examination a reader can delve into the many messages he included about human life on Earth.
Suggest?
Yes, if you want to try something a little different. It interesting to read a book that was written in 1950 and set in the future, including up to 2013 and beyond!
