Ray Bradbury: The Martian Chronicles

"Marriage made people old and familiar, while still young." [Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles]
This is one of the things that I love about Mr. Bradbury's writing - the way he weaves thoughts about everyday human nature into his science fiction stories. Many science fiction novels are not just entertainment, but are commentaries on society, and contain predictions of what the author thinks may ocurr or is already ocurring. Ray Bradbury works his observations of everyday life into his writing as well.
