Read away; they're not bad at all.  Let me know what you think about them once you do.

What are those Bradbury's "Martian Chronicles" about? Should I read it?

I'll welcome answers:]


Read it :) . In my opinion it's very special novel, containing some kind of poetry. I'm very curious about your reception of it.

As for now, I haven't been truly succesful in finding the "Martial Cronicles". But I've found "Farhenheit 415" and I started readin' it. It's quite interesting. Bradbury has a poetic style.

...and now, after finishing ,Fahrenheit 415' i confirm that Bradbury is brilliant.
I especially enjoy his style, whis is so reminding of poetry; meanwhile the narration doesn't get flawed; which is very impressive.

Have to aim on ,,Martian Cronicles'' now...

The only Ray Bradbury novel I DON'T recommend at all is "Something Wicked This Way Comes"... I just didn't get the point of the book  :-/

Yeah, FH is pretty good; I liked his love of books.  "Wicked" is different, but still readable.

..Something Wicked This Way Comes'' must, by the way, be some popular quote, as it was used as a slogan in ,,Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban'' the other day...

That doesn't quite honour Bradbury :) But anyway...

It's really a good book! Something different from other Bradbury's books, but still deep and poetic! Probably it can seem a bit dull, but one shouldn't be at hurry while reading it- it is a rule for the books where plot is not very capturing:-)

I didn't read books about Harry Potter - just looked them through and surely didn't notice that quotation. Yet it's a curious fact. Do you mean that these words were not invented by Bradbury? And who is the author then?

By the way, "Harry Potter" is a nice thing. Especially the film (back to childhood...)

I personally like Lem a little more than Bradbury, but, in my opinion, their significance in literature is equal. Both are more than sci fi writers. Lem prefers intellectual games, Bradbury prefers emotions (but of course that's not enough to give them a complete characteristic).

I think "Something wicked this way comes" is actually a line from Shakespeare (Macbeth?)...

That's it! I checked, it's really from "Makbeth":-)

Well of course it comes from Shakespeare, it was just used as a song lyric an last Potter movie.

Yes, you should read Martian Chronicles. Another moderately useful suggestion from an anonymous coward.

I am sorry but I can't answer that, because as far as now I have only read 'Fahrenheit'.

(So its by far the best :)   )

I'll try to choose after I've read some more.
