Today its message has grown more relevant than ever before. After graduating from high school, Bradbury's family could not afford for him to attend college so Bradbury began spending time at the Los Angeles Public Library where he essentially educated himself.

    InBradbury published his first major work, The Martian Chronicles, which detailed the conflict between humans colonizing the red planet and the native Martians they encountered there. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression, and we had no money. Due to some property of the Martian soil, the trees grow into a mighty forest overnight.

    When the "imaginary" crew does not disappear as well, Mr. Xxx, a psychiatristdeclares him incurable and kills him. Beatty blames the minority groups, who would take offense to published works that displayed them in an unfavorable light. Is it an implication, or does he state it as fact in the story? They play with a sense of urgency because the Firemen are due to arrive soon, cleaning and disinfecting the ruins and destroying this source of fun.
