Discussion questions -The Martian Chronicles: Why Mars?

  1. Why Mars? Could the stories have taken place on Venus or Jupiter, or does it have to be Mars? Is Mars a realistic place in the stories? Is it a mix of reality and fantasy?
  2. Do you sense any nostalgia for the past in The Martian Chronicles? Which do you think Bradbury would say is best: the past, the present, or the future? Why?
  3. How does the book’s format of interlinked short stories help (or hinder, for that matter) Bradbury’s point? How might the book have been different as a traditional novel?
