review 1: Bradbury is one of my favorite authors and I always love his poetic style. There is just something to reading his stories. They text is almost haunting. This story is no exception. It is strange to read someone who has such an emphasise on style but is still so accessible as a wr...

review 1: This is a set of Bradbury's short stories that swirl around the events in Fahrenheit 451, either taking place in or near the same dystopia where books are illegal and all things that generate excitement or fear are sanitized. It also includes the stories that were the direct mate...

review 1: I read F451 back in sixth grade for ELA class, and I remember being bored and feeling that the apocalyptic perception of the end of whatever-unnamed-country-this-takes-place-in was overwrought to the point of being histrionic. I was also bored. I think that my judgment in 2000 wa...

review 1: A collection of all Bradbury's short stories on the same theme as Fahrenheit 451, as well as the two novellas that are sort of rough drafts to that novel- the same nearly word for word for much of their lengths.I do like Bradbury's short fiction a lot, but this collection in part...

review 1: This is a really beautiful edition of some of Ray Bradbury's finest work.I had not read The Martian Chronicles since high school, and it was great to rediscover it in the context of greater knowledge of Bradbury's work, where one can see the ripples of his recurrent themes spread...

review 1: This book is boring. The plot confused me how a single different in the past could change the whole future. The plot of the story is about rich businessmen wants to hunt dinosaur, so his group travel back in time when dinosaurs were still alive. They get to hunt dinosaur only wit...
Summer Morning, Summer Night (2008)

review 1: Ray Bradbury holds the secret of summer in this treasured little book of short stories. It's a great addition to Dandelion Wine, which I have to say I loved more, probably only because it's longer. Even though I'm not of Bradbury's generation, I can still appreciate the subtle in...

review 1: A dream the other night made it clear that world is ending in 24 hours. Everybody had the same dream; exactly the same. Everybody believed it to be real. Nobody protested or bothered to do anything special in the few remaining hours. As the two main characters in the story explai...
