    In lyrical prose, Bradbury describes the decline of the mysterious and fragile Martian civilization, overwhelmed by the human newcomers. Bradbury reads these tales of common people - families, truck-stop owners, priests - who confront a new world with their human pride, fears, tenderness, and greed intact. And at the heart of each story lies the basic conflict between man's search for new frontiers and his irresistible urge for the comfort of the past.

    Overall

    I'm hardly unbiased, because I've been a fan of Bradbury since I was 8 - but this digital recording is perfect. I have some old audiotape of the Chronicles, but they are in horrible condition, and the tape hiss on them is awful. This recording is crystal clear, and the addition of his commentary looking back is very interesting - it lets you hear the stories a whole new way, the way he meant them. It's especially interesting to listen to now, as we are passing through the dates described in the work.
