this book was truly an amazing read. i've read sci-fi before but never like this. I read it 3 years ago and to this day it is one of the best books i have ever read. The way Bradbury can compile short stories in this book and somehow relate every story to one another and give them common features is simply incredible. He even borrows from E.A Poe in one of my favorite stories. this is a must read.

i just didn't enjoy it

We had to read this book for school, and it just wasn't MY cup of tea. Maybe its meant for someone else, but truthfully i just wanted to shut the book and throw it out the window.

    I am not a fan of science fiction. However, The Martian Chronicl

    I am not a fan of science fiction. However, The Martian Chronicles is an okay book. Some people would say that that Ray Bradbury is a master story teller. I can't agree with that statement; but he is an interesting story teller. I like some of the stories in Martian Chronicles, such as, Rocket Summer, Ylla, Green Morning, and The Million Year Picnic. Some of the stories are bland. I am glad I read this book because it took me out of my reading comfort zone; but I don't think I will be reading anymore of Ray Bradbury's books in the future.
