What a strange book! It reminded me a bit of 'The Twilight Zone.' I found this book confusing at first, until I realized that each story was a different perspective of life on Mars with the Martians. The stories having to do with the Martians were by far more interesting than the ones not having much to do with the Martians. Some of the stories dragged on a bit, but not so much so that I couldn't bear to finish the book. I would recommend this Ray Bradbury classic if you like science fiction.

This was the best sci-fi book I have ever read, and normally I hate sci-fi of any kind (although I love fantasy)! The book was so timeless and original, and really got my brain thinking about dimensions and time-travel. I am so surprised! Although I don't plan on going crazy with this author or genre, it definitely opened up my mind a little more, especially where the genre is concerned.

If I didnt have two copies, I wouldnt be willing to swap it. It's truly one of my favorites and an awesome collection of short stories by one of the masters.

I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of Ray Bradbury's famous "twists".

A collection of Bradbury stories. I'm not a big sci-fi fan, so I liked some and not others.

Man this book got me thinking!!! And quite frankly it was a little disturbing. But that being said it was really good and probably one of my favorites.
