Don't get it...

So what would be Bradbury's must-read works? I've read Martian Chronicles but I can't recall what it's all about...

Recommend you read the Martian Chronicles again ...

Fahrenheit 451 is probably Bradbury's best-known book. It was based upon a short story called The Fireman, which imagined a future world where firemen no longer were needed to put out fires... they are used instead to burn books. 451 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature at which paper burns, so it is called "Fahrenheit Four-Fifty-One", not "Fahrenheit four-five-one".

I would also recommend The Illustrated Man, The October Country, and Dandelion Wine, among others.
