    Ray Bradbury's moving recollection of a vanished golden era remains one of his most enchanting novels. Dandelion Wine stands out in the Bradbury literary canon as the author's most deeply personal work, a semi-autobiographical recollection of a magical small-town summer in 1928.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Dandelion Wine the most enjoyable?

    Ray Bradbury is from green town ( Waukegan Il. ). As I grew up there the story really hit home as I have not lived there for a great many years. As I listened to the story I found myself home again. As he spoke of all the surroundings I remembered them as if I were back there again. Green town has for all of these years as for the most part not grown up, the houses the lawns the streets will all take you back in time as they have never changed. It is to say time does and has stood still there. It to is my home town.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Hoye’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The author grew up and lived here and he presents the story in much of the way he had lived it. I was born and raised there as well. His views of the layout of the city and the goings on in Waukegan are just as he wrote of them. He really knows how to describe the actual surroundings so as to make you feel you are actually there.The book makes you feel right at home.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I found nothing wrong with the narrator. He was able to speak clearly and with passion as if it was a story of his own life. He told the story in such a way it was hard to turn it off for the day.
