really liked it
Recommended for: sci-fi heads
Read in September, 2007

If you liked War of the Worlds, you'd like this. It's more 'cartoony' than that, but it's the same type of understanding/idea that people seemed to have had about space and Mars in the time of War of the Worlds.

It's wild and out there, but of course Bradbury seems to be able to get away with anything; Pushing the boundaries of reality around at will, and then clinging to others when convenient.

Also, it's very interesting that these are a bunch of shorts he wrote (or mostly wrote) independently and then strung together in a working chronology.
