A classic combination of space fantasy -- and social commentary.

review by . August 03, 2010
Bradbury is of a generation of sci-fi writers who used allegory and metaphors to deftly explore humanity and the human mind, even while literally writing about aliens. Bradbury isn't trying to prove that aliens exist on Mars. Rather, the book, really a collection of short stories, allows people to wonder about the sustainability of their own civilization. This is probably one of the best of Bradbury's works. (By the way, this book was later made into a haunting computer game.)

Bradbury has always been one of my favorite SF authors, and this is one of his best books, so you can't go wrong with it.

Excellent as a whole; Ylla, The Earth Men, Usher II and There Will Come Soft Rains are all must reads.
