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.
Happy Halloween, everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderfully spooky season 🎃👻🎃

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

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
