Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I know that many consider Ray Bradbury a brilliant author but this is the second of his books that I just didn't like. There are 30 short stories and 2 of the first 15 had a sci-fi twist that I found interesting. The rest were simply boring and didn't make much sense. I couldn't finish the book and probably never will. The nook edition had numerous typos which also added to the overall low star rating. If you're a Ray Bradbury fan, you may enjoy this. It simply wasn't for me.
This is one of my all time favorite Bradbury collections.
