Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles (1950)

I don't know what happened to this meetup. Is there some reason that we can't expect the next meetup? Otherwise, how about we start again with 'The Martian Chronicles' by Ray Bradbury ? I miss you guys. 


p.s.: How about everyone who would join the meetup suggests a book for the next meetup at the end of the meeting, or write down the title on a small paper, while other guys can't see it. The person who suggested the book at this meetup can not suggest one at the next meetup. Then, one of those papers would be picked up by the person who suggested the book at the meetup. I am suggesting,....

    I would've loved to join in on this discussion but joined too late to read Martian and catchup.

    What's the next book and when is the next meetup?

    Cheers,
    Jason

    Hi - read what you can I'd say. I suggest we divide the discussion into a half hour of general discussion then 30 mins each on 3 specific stories - anyone want to suggest which ones? I'd vote for first last and one other....

    Jun, thanks for suggesting Martian Chronicles. Apparently the stories are loosely grouped into 3 parts. Are you suggesting we do the whole book in one session? Or should we break it up into 2 or 3 sessions?
