A wonderful collection of short stories intertwined into the perfect novel about Mars. Throughout The Martian Chronicles, Bradbury tackles the subjects of atomic warfare, censorship, imperialism, and much more in the most humorous way. As quick a read as it is entertaining, I would rank it quite high amongst Bradbury's catalogue of books. Being his first published novel, I imagine the short story, in The Martian Chronicles, about censorship and book burning led to his eventual classic Fahrenheit 451. I'd highly recommend anyone read this book.
