The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury Book Summary

Mars was a distant shore, and the men spread upon it in waves... Each wave different, and each wave stronger.

The Martian Chronicles

Ray Bradbury is a storyteller without peer, a poet of the possible, and, indisputably, one of America's most beloved authors. In a much celebrated literary career that has spanned six decades, he has produced an astonishing body of work: unforgettable novels, including Fahrenheit 451 and Something Wicked This Way Comes; essays, theatrical works, screenplays and teleplays; The Illustrated Mein, Dandelion Wine, The October Country, and numerous other superb short story collections. But of all the dazzling stars in the vast Bradbury universe, none shines more luminous than these masterful chronicles of Earth's settlement of the fourth world from the sun.

Bradbury's Mars is a place of hope, dreams and metaphor-of crystal pillars and fossil seas-where a fine dust settles on the great, empty cities of a silently destroyed civilization. It is here the invaders have come to despoil and commercialize, to grow and to learn -first a trickle, then a torrent, rushing from a world with no future toward a promise of tomorrow. The Earthman conquers Mars ... and then is conquered by it, lulled by dangerous lies of comfort and familiarity, and enchanted by the lingering glamour of an ancient, mysterious native race.

Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles is a classic work of twentieth-century literature whose extraordinary power and imagination remain undimmed by time's passage. In connected, chronological stories, a true grandmaster once again enthralls, delights and challenges us with his vision and his heart-starkly and stunningly exposing in brilliant spacelight our strength, our weakness, our folly, and our poignant humanity on a strange and breathtaking world where humanity does not belong.

The Martian Chronicles (Ray Bradbury) Book Reviews

Stunning“A stunning view to the sad truths of the ways of the [Earth Men] such as for example the constant ruining of the planet, the evil discrimination which humans have to offer and the destructive force we enact upon the world.".Score: 5/5

The Martian ChroniclesForced to read this for English Class. Not a fan of all of the interchapters I prefer a longer chapter..Score: 2/5

Beyond this worldA must-read. These vignettes show the weaker and complex side of humanity..Score: 5/5

Missing Story?Why is this missing the story “Way In The Middle Of The Air”? Everything I’ve seen online suggests the story should be here yet it isn’t. Is this a Fahrenheit 451 situation?.Score: 3/5

Unforgettable!This haunting collection of stories is still fresh today after all these years. Nobody has portrayed Mars and it's settlement in a more artistic and profound manner. One of my favorite books..Score: 5/5

Almost a bibleIt seems a little sketchy to me that Bradbury's books have all popped into ebook less than a year after his death(he was totally against the format), but I am happy to see the book spread. It may be melodramatic, but this book taught me more about being human than any other. As a teen, Usher II woke me to the dangers of censorship. The moon be still as bright taught me about blind imperialism. It is still one of my favorite books, and worthy read for anyone..Score: 5/5
