The Martian Chronicles

Science Fiction, Novel by Ray Bradbury


Bradbury's Mars is a place of hope, dreams and metaphor - of crystal pillars and fossil seas - 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, lulled by dangerous lies of comfort and familiarity, and enchanted by the lingering glamour of an ancient, mysterious native race.

Ray Bradbury entführt den Leser in eine fremde Welt, die bei genauerer Betrachtung gar nicht so fremd ist. In vielen kurzen Episoden schafft er es nicht nur ein zusammenhängenden Bild über die Besiedelung des Mars' zu kreieren, sondern gleichzeitig Themen wie Rassismus oder Atomkriege anzuprangern. Ein immer noch brandaktuelles Buch, das der Menschheit immer wieder den Spiegel vorhält. Unbedingt lesen!
