    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.

    "Great stories, poor narration"
    Overall

    Most of the stories were worthwhile and interesting. It was also interesting to hear some of Bradbury's comments about the stories, looking back several decades after writing them. But I did not at all enjoy his narrative style. Blasphemous though it may be to say so, I think this would have been a much better audiobook with a different, perhaps more professional narrator.
