Ralphslaurensoutlet.co.uk the This was embarrassing So embarrassing I had to add an image I literally could not rate this book two stars because it weighed on my soul This was depressing to get through.So, first off, I m a die hard fan of Bradbury, and I ve read The Martian Chronicles probably twice, not necessarily chronologically each time, but all the same, I m familiar I knew the plots of most of the stories and I still got confused, because the speech bubbles make no sense.Look at that That is sad That is un This was embarrassing So embarrassing I had to add an image I literally could not rate this book two stars because it weighed on my soul This was depressing to get through.So, first off, I m a die hard fan of Bradbury, and I ve read The Martian Chronicles probably twice, not necessarily chronologically each time, but all the same, I m familiar I knew the plots of most of the stories and I still got confused, because the speech bubbles make no sense.Look at that That is sad That is unreadable That is something that should never have gotten past an editor My God It got worse, but I can t find images, so just trust me when I say every other page looked like this uninspired imagery with blocks of text laid on top, generally haphazardly I was at a loss I don t know how I finished the book.I want to add a star for the art, but it was what it was It changed so often I actually thought at some point multiple artists were doing it all with the same general bland comic book style, but still, multiple artists, because sometimes the art was honestly just a set of silhouettes Nope And I can t get a photo of this, but on the last page, there s a reflection that s drawn not backwards, but somehow worse A man is holding a child on his right shoulder, and the child appears on the right shoulder in the reflection Yes Really I Can t Make This Up All Of This Got Through Editing Somehow.Hence my reaction image I still cannot believe this was authorized Who let this happen Why What on Earth possessed them Please just read the regular book and leave this one alone I m not really sure why, but I have never read Bradbury s The Martian Chronicles, so when I had the chance to order this graphic adaptation of the book I took it And of course, now I want to read the original version In the introduction to this 2011 edition, Bradbury explains his lifelong fascination for Mars and how he came to write the stories that eventually were collected as The Martian Chronicles I was so impressed with this book There is a lot to think about here, and the topics are as I m not really sure why, but I have never read Bradbury s The Martian Chronicles, so when I had the chance to order this graphic adaptation of the book I took it And of course, now I want to read the original version In the introduction to this 2011 edition, Bradbury explains his lifelong fascination for Mars and how he came to write the stories that eventually were collected as The Martian Chronicles I was so impressed with this book There is a lot to think about here, and the topics are as timely in our day as when the stories began appearing in 1946 Maybe evenso I do read some graphic novels, yet I m no expert in the field I felt the artwork here matched the feeling of the stories, but I did get confused sometimes with the dialogue bubbles Every so often I read them out of order simply because I wasn t sure which was supposed to be first.But that was a tiny blip on the radar screen, the rest of the experience was amazing I ve been through it twice already, and I can t help but wonder if any of Bradbury s visions of Mars may someday become reality I do know that whether or not Man ever manages to colonize other worlds, if we do not change our basic approach to life before we go, we will destroy every planet the way we are destroying Earth now What a fantastic adaptation this is The Martian Chronicles is one of my favorite sci fi books, and when I saw this graphic novel version on the shelf at my library, I grabbed it and couldn t wait to read it.The text is from Bradbury s famous stories, and the accompanying drawings are striking I ve read the original novel several times, and reading it with such powerful visuals made it eventhought provoking and compelling.I would highly recommend this adaptation to science fiction fans.Fa What a

dream is just as good What a weird, mostly repetitive, dark, not very fun time.
