Para calcular a classificação geral de estrelas e a análise percentual por estrela, não usamos uma média simples. Em vez disso, nosso sistema considera coisas como se uma avaliação é recente e se o avaliador comprou o item na Amazon. Ele também analisa avaliações para verificar a confiabilidade.
I was disappointed with this book. I had been meaning to read it for years and downloaded it to my kindle ready for holiday reading. I thought it was meant to be a Sci-Fi classic but it has not stood the test of time and now feels really dated. The disjointed structure of largely unconnected episodes is unsatisfying. After the 3rd chapter I was ready to abandon it (not something I do often) but kept going in the hope that the point of it would finally click with me. It didn't. I did not think it had anything really profound or interesting to say about the human condition. Some even older sci-fi ( H G Wells, Olaf Stapledon) has stood the test of time much better and has far more thought-provoking ideas within it than this.
I purchased this book after reading Ray Bradbury's obituary. I like science fiction, and tried hard to like it but I did not get the same enjoyment as other readers described. The book is well written and creative, just not for me.
If you're looking for gripping, exciting Sci-Fi.....look elsewhere.
This is one of the most somber books I've ever read. Everything is as dull and flat as the real-life Martian landscape. I was bored by the half-way point, and BOY was it rough 3-day slog through the second half.
Less a book, more a collection of essays--the Martian chronicles tells the story of Earth's colonization of Mars. As you'd expect, mankind brings all their worst aspects to mars, kills off all the martians, and realizes their errors when it's too late. The big takeaways are that man-kind is horrible, destructive, violent, prejudiced....so yeah. That's about it. The Martian Chronicles is dated at best, contrived at worst.
I'd steer clear if you're looking for Sci-Fi fun. This is really just a treatise on the human condition...one that--frankly--isn't all that insightful.
