Bradbury knows how to reach the soul
This is the first new Bradbury collection that I have read in a few years. Bradbury's style of narrative plays with the emotions to transport the reader to another time and place - one that is both strange and familiar. He has the ability connect the reader to the wistful, haunting and sometimes frighteningly desperate souls of his characters. Overall, a very satisfying read.Was this review helpful?

with at least a few enjoyable tales...
Quicker than the Eye is a short story collection by Ray Bradbury. Some of these twenty one stories bored me but a few I really enjoyed. There is a story, Another Fine Mess, about a man who sees the ghosts of Laurel and Hardy. My favorite story in this book is called The Very Gentle Murders and follows an aged married couple as they spend their last years lovingly trying to assassinate each other. Another good story in this collection is called The Witch Door. It's about a secret door under the stairs in an old farm house that links two separate centuries. Overall, Quicker Than the Eye is an interesting collection with at least a few very enjoyable tales.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
