Dandelion Wine
Dandelion Wine | Ray D Bradbury
The summer of '28 was a vintag season for a growing boy. A summer of green apple trees, mowed lawns, and new sneakers. Of half-burnt firecrackers, of gathering dandelions, of Grandma's belly-busting dinner. It was a summer of sorrows and marvels and gold-fuzzed bees. A magical, timeless summer in the life of a twelve-year-old boy named Douglas Spaulding--remembered forever by the incomparable Ray Bradbury. "Bradbury is an authentic original." -- "Time"

I didn‘t really know what to expect, but I really enjoyed this. I‘m not a huge Bradbury fan, but so far I‘ve liked what I‘ve read. This is a vignette-centered story of the summer of 1928 in Green Town, Illinois. There‘s life, death, love, adventure, and some creepiness thrown in, too. I got this copy from my parents when they moved from OH to ID years ago. It‘s from 1969 and neither of them remember buying or reading it, but someone obviously did.

LibrarianRyan I love this cover. SO much darker then the covers usually are for this book. 3mo

This is a masterwork in the art of connected stories or vignettes. In the hands of Ray Bradbury, small-town America in the summer of 1928 comes alive. Kids run free and adults sip glasses of dandelion wine on their porches. But there‘s also an unsettling undercurrent of both evil and the inevitable passage of time.

I do this thing (up until now unintentionally) whereby is a name, or a concept, or a book comes up a few times in things I have read in relative succession, I figure it must be for a reason and I seek it out. A few books ago, Hilarie Burton-Morgan mentioned that Dandelion Wine is her favourite book, and now Joe Hill mentioned it as influential in the intro to Full Throttle. So I guess I have to buy this?

Unfortunately these two books just weren't for me, they sounded so interesting but couldn't get into them. Dandelion Wine is my own book so will maybe try again another time.

blurb
mobill76

No one has ever walked the fine line between poetry and prose any better. The similarities I have with the hero are now painful reminders that fictional characters don't have to age but I do and I have. But there is still a hope suggested by Bradbury that the memories of my own life can be pressed and bottled, to be enjoyed again when they've been forgotten as my own Dandelion Wine.

Day 6 of #12booksof2020 I'm not a seasonal reader, but if I had to choose a favorite author to read at certain moments of the year it'd be Bradbury. I read two Bradbury books in '20 & both were seasonal reads. Most recently I read The Halloween Tree in October, & on Labor Day I read Dandelion Wine, his emotional & moving linked story collection about childhood & long summers. Dandelion Wine now ranks as one of my favorite Bradbury books. @andrew65

It has been about 25 years since I read this, and wow it is different from my memories. I adored Bradbury as a teen, but this was a bit if a slog to get through. Slow and languid, the children are mean and each chapter is different to the point of disjointedness. I can see though why I liked it at the time, I was probably just getting onto magical realism (which I still love) and the pacing and style remind me of LuGuin and Kings Stand by Me

Definitely not my favorite Bradbury, but the way he sets up the life of the town is very interesting. There were just too many characters, and I didn‘t care about many of them at all. I was hoping to get to the second this month, Something Wicked This Way Comes, but it‘s still on hold from the library. #authoramonth

I‘m not sure what to say about this book. Now that I‘ve finished it, I can‘t really tell you what it was about. Needless to say it did not make a lasting impression on me. I didn‘t hate, but I didn‘t love it, I‘m not even sure if I really liked it or not since I didn‘t seem to absorb any of the story. Maybe I‘ll try it again another time. This is my last Bradbury for the month, total 5 read. #AuthorAMonth #AAMRB

BarbaraJean I loved Dandelion Wine, but I think you do have to be in the right mood for it. It‘s very episodic and a bit slow—which I found perfect for leisurely reading, outside on summertime lunch hours. 2y

“And then, quite suddenly, summer was over.“
As I mentioned in my previous post this book has been on my TBR for years. I always planned on reading it during summer for maximum effect, & since I consider Labor Day to be the final day of summer, it worked out quite well that I had today off from work & was able to spend the day with Bradbury's book. Published four years after Fahrenheit 451, it's hard to imagine a book more different from his👇

vivastory famous portrayal of censorship & book burning than his first autobiographical fantasy. Set in Green Town Illinois, we follow siblings Douglas & Thomas Spaulding over the course of their summer vacation through a series of vignettes. The book begins in lush prose, a languid atmosphere permeates the first couple of chapters. This is dispelled when Douglas has an awakening of himself as individual outside of the family unit. An individual who will (edited) 2y
vivastory one day inevitably die. It is this awareness of his own mortality, & his subsequent experiences with the adult world, that helps keep Bradbury's book from becoming saccharine. Bradbury walks a very fine line in how he portrays the sincerity & emotions of his characters & unfortunately I think that some contemporary readers have become too jaded to appreciate it. For some readers the sentiments expressed in Dandelion Wine will simply be too mawkish 2y
vivastory I adored this book. I think I still slightly prefer Something Wicked This Way Comes or Fahrenheit (tied as my fave Bradbury), but this will resonate with me for awhile. (edited) 2y

I‘m not sure whether to call this nostalgia tinged with magical realism or magical realism tinged with nostalgia. Bradbury effortlessly blends the two to create a warm and earnest remembrance of a long ago Midwestern summer through the eyes of a 12-year old boy. 4⭐️

This book was just so lovely. The writing is beautiful.
It is about a 12 year old boy who lives in an American town over the summer holidays of 1928.
The ordinary becomes magical and extraordinary through his eyes. If only we all still looked at the world through child's eyes. Everyday an adventure, a puzzle, a warm hug with ourselves.
I'm looking forward to its sequel, 'Something wicked this way comes'.

#FallIsBooked Day 24: #FavoriteFallBeverage must be Bradbury‘s dandelion wine, tasted in books. What I would give right now to have a taste from that bottle. But perhaps another air from another time gathered lovingly by another man‘s hands would be the one that would work best, who knows really with these things? Ray Bradbury is a gift.
