This book is about small town mars, and it is glorious. When his contemporaries were writing about rockets, space exploration and other staples of hard science fiction (and in some cases inventing those staples), Bradbury was telling us what it was like to live in that future. I don't want to gainsay the others, I enjoy them as well, but I'm very glad to have finally found Bradbury, since I hadn't read any since Farenheit 451 in high school.

The stories are somewhat uneven--this didn't start as a unified collection, and it shows. Often minor details are inconsistent, and sometimes big picture items (the ways that Martian telepathy works, for instance). But so long as you get over that, the individual stories are quite enjoyable. Sometimes the tone varies as well. Of course, the most out of place story, Usher 2, was also my favorite, making me laugh out loud when I was reading it, not caring to check if anyone was nearby.
