Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

Something Wicked This Way Comes - Ray Bradbury

A dark carnival that holds many secrets, an Illustrated Man, a carousel, two boys on the brink of adolescence. Youth versus old age, summer versus autumn, good versus evil.


This is the second book I've read from Ray Bradbury (the first being Fahrenheit 451). It was a good read, but again I felt there was something in his writing that just didn't click with me. The way he used words struck me as beautiful at times, and completely ridiculous and over the top at others. I can't quite put my finger on why, but there you have it.


All in all, this was an interesting book, but in the end I just didn't love it.
