Teen Book Review: The Martian Chronicles

Title: The Martian Chronicles
Author: Ray Bradbury
Publisher: Harper Collins
Library Catalog / Hoopla / OverDrive & Libby

The first book to interest me in the science fiction genre, and a compelling read, The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury is set in a fictional world where humans colonize Mars. The book is a collection of several short interconnected short stories, with time jumps between each. Starting with perspective of the first mission of humans to reach Mars, and ending with the last few people left on Mars, this story is full of masterful twists, leaving you question what is real, and what is inside of the characters heads. A true page-turner, and short enough to keep you interested, The Martian Chronicles is well worth the read.
