I have been reading this book off and on for probably almost 15 years (I definitely prefer novels to short stories). That being said, Bradbury's stories are interesting and offer a lot of interesting social commentary that is still applicable today, even though the book was originally published in 1951. Many of the stories have somewhat depressing endings, but the last full story was more upbeat, which was nice.

An excellent collection of short stories. They transport the reader immediately into each world, and leave you with the mood lingering. I suppose this is just what short stories should do.

Some of the science fiction feels quaint now, but so well written, who could complain?

I love the way Bradbury tells a story. His work is deceptively complex and I enjoyed this Spooky Season exploration of friendship, adventure, imagination, grief and death. I might not make it an annual tradition, but I would consider reading it again.

"'Like to go to the pictures?'
'No.'
'Aw, come on,' she said. 'Everyone else is.'
'No,' he said. 'Is that all you do in this world?'
'All? Ain't that enough?' He blue eyes widened suspiciously. 'What you want me to do -- sit at home, read a book? Ha, ha! That's rich.'"

This was another one where I just couldn‘t concentrate on the audio, but adored it once I switched to the print version. Also Mugnani is such a talented artist, I‘m psyched this library version is illustrated by him. #Scarathlon2022 #TeamMonsterMash @StayCurious #Spookoween2022 @TheSpineView #31by31 @Catsandbooks #PointsAThon @dieareader @GHABI4ROSES #OutstandingOctober @andrew65 #witchathon @mdm139

Ann_Reads I had problems with the audio, too. The narrator was fine but I kept zoning out for some reason. 1mo
