    Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man is a kaleidoscopic blending of magic, imagination, and truth, widely believed to be one of the grand master's premier accomplishments. Collected here are eighteen tales, startling visions of humankind's destiny, unfolding across a canvas of decorated skin, visions as keen as the tattooist's needle and as colorful as the inks that indelibly stain the body.

    Overall

    The narration is quite good. This is a classic from the genre. It is well written and entertaining. 3-stars are as a result of the depressing nature of this collection of short stories. At first I really enjoyed hearing the stories, but I was ready to jump off a building after listening to a dozen of them. It is the most depressing look at the future that I could imagine. Of all the stories, only a couple would I consider as containing hope or a positive outlook from the characters.
