Timeless classic read

by kokopelli on Apr 25, 2013

Bradbury's work improves with age, like a good pinot noir. In this age of the ubiquitous tattoo, it's even a more vivid intro.


Classic Sci-Fi

by Musarter on Oct 16, 2009

The first thing you should know about this book is that it was written as individual stories, previously printed in magazines, that were later compiled together and stuck between a Prologue and Epilogue. That said, each story is enjoyable and a few are outstanding. Bradbury writes decently enough but his real strength is his imagination. He has a way of making the fantastic seem common which makes the stories human; even stories about martians. He also plays off psychological themes and the human experience well. He invented convincing space travel experiences prior to actual space travel. Many of the stories are worthy of multiple reads.
