    The people of Earth are preparing for war - a war that could potentially destroy the planet. Explorers are sent to Mars to find a new place for humans to colonize. Bradbury's Mars is a place of hope, dreams, and metaphor, where a fine dust settles on the great empty cities of a silently destroyed civilization. It is here the invaders have come to despoil and commercialize, to grow and to learn - first a trickle, then a torrent, rushing from a world with no future toward a promise of tomorrow. The Earthman conquers Mars... and then is conquered by it.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Martian Chronicles: A Radio Dramatization?

    Nothing really disappointed me. But at the same time, it didn't captivate me or entertain me like the individual stories did. Having listened to many of these segments on X-Minus-1, suspense, etc. or having read the original short stories I was familiar with most of what went on. But tying them together into one story, was choppy and broken up. It just didn't captivate me, that's what disappointed me.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    As with the previous comment, nothing. It simply was there; no aspect of the story was overly memorable or not. It would have been better as separate short stories.


    Which character – as performed by The Colonial Radio Players – was your favorite?

    None, nothing was that memorable


    What character would you cut from The Martian Chronicles: A Radio Dramatization?

    None, this question seems rather inappropriate for here. The author wrote what he wrote and I would not feel right telling him so-and-so should not have been in the book(s).


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said, it isn't bad; it also isn't great. I would set up bookmarks to mark the changes from one story to another and treat it as such. I series of short stories strung together. The pre-defined chapters are a good starting place to find the starts of the stories.
