Bradbury

I've read various short stories by Bradbury over the years and he wrote two of my favorites: Something Wicked This Way Comes and Fahrenheit 451.  I picked up The Martian Chronicles and read it over the last couple days as it was the only one I had in the house.  I also read "The Sound of Thunder", one of Bradbury's short stories.  

 I liked The Martian Chronicles but it seemed a bit disjointed.  Some of the chapters were previous short stories and those chapters were actually the very best.  "And The Moon Be Still As Bright" and "The Night Meeting"  were both very good; "Usher II" was a wonderful creepy story, both for the censorship it details and the house on Mars.  On a whole the book has that very dreamy feeling that all old sci-fi seems to have.  a 5 from me.


Think I will try to pick up Dandelion Wine or The Halloween Tree
