What a disappointment for a Bradbury book,

I've been reading and loving Ray Bradbury's books since I was a young teen about 50 years ago, and sad to say, this is the first book of his that I have heartily disliked. This makes me sad. I was looking forward to some time with his usual inventive, futuristic scifi, but no... This is not his typical imaginative fare, this is intensely dark, such as an old married couple trying multiple ways to kill each other, a psychotic German psychiatrist obsessed with submarines who screamed at his patients, haunted graveyard dirt, etc. etc. I think he was going through an Edgar Allen Poe phase or something . There were a couple good stories but not enough. Anyway, I'm returning this book. Sigh.

Another fine Bradbury you've gotten me into.

I adore Ray Bradbury! I thought I had read and reread and reread...etc...every book he ever wrote but I missed this one. SO VERY VERY glad I found it here as an Audible. It is wonderful, a delightful mix of dark and light with all his vivid imagery. And the reader did it justice...we'll read sir. Thanks for making this available.

Most Amazing!

One of my favorite narrators reads one of my favorite authors since childhood!

These stories made me laugh and cry and hope to someday be remembered fondly.

Do yourself a lifelong favor and listen to this!
