I’m one of the few people that didn’t have to read Fahrenheit in school so the only exposure I had to Ray Bradbury before this was issues of Tales from the Crypt where they adapted his stories. Bradbury’s got a quaint sort of writing style and most of his tales have that bite you in ass ending. He knows how to tell a short story without letting it get too wordy. Not all of them are gems but there are more gems than bits of broken glass in this collection, that’s for sure.

Bradbury on the sea: I’ll make a voice that is like an empty bed beside you all night long, and like an empty house when you open the door, and like the trees in autumn with no leaves. A sound like the birds flying south, crying, and a sound like November wind and the sea on the hard, cold shore. I’ll make a sound Bradbury on the sea: I’ll make a sound that’s so alone that no one can miss it, that whoever hears it will weep in their souls, and to all who hear it in the distant towns.
I’ll make me a sound and an apparatus and they’ll call it a Fog Horn and whoever hears it will know the sadness of eternity and the briefness of life. If everybody in the world had read this story as a child, we’d treat those things with the care and respect they deserve.
I cannot begin to say how wrong the people are who think that Ray Bradbury doesn’t count, that he is for some period where we believed in things that we don’t any more. He makes things important without proseltysing.
It was a story about something that can’t even exist and yet! Bradbury explained his influence on kids like me thus: Do you know why teachers use me? Because I speak in tongues. Every one of my stories is a metaphor you can remember. The great religions are all metaphor.
Golden Apples of the Sun by Ray Bradbury (4 star ratings)
They read about rocket ships and encounters in space, tales of dinosaurs. Today, my stories are in a thousand anthologies. The other writers are quite often dead people who wrote in metaphors: All oeaton people wrote for children.
They may fay pretended not to, but they did. I want to say how amazing he is, again! View all bradbuury comments. Not all of the stories in this collection of Bradbury’s short fiction are great, or even that memorable, but one or two of them will stick with me — I particularly enjoyed ‘Embroidery’, which was well-structured and had a lovely final paragraph. Even if a few of them didn’t really get to me, it’s worth braebury that I received it in the mail just today, and I read it in two sittings.

I’ve been rather wrapped up in video games lately hey, I just got the news that I got a first for my degree, I deserve the time off! Though this book was actually a gift from a friend in celebration of exactly that but this pulled me right out of them and kept me turning pages. View cuentoo 15 comments. So very weird, beautiful, unmatched, magical use of words, sentences, almost a prose poetry! A slow read for me, because I had to process each story or wade through the themes.
Time, age, technology, natural resources, space, family, and so much more. I got bogged down a bit in his school-boy fascination with the space race and rockets which came through strongly in many of the stories. The stories on the surface seem s So very weird, beautiful, unmatched, magical use of words, sentences, almost a prose poetry! The stories on the surface seem so far fetched, yet underneath there are beautiful layers to peel back and think on.
Half of these short stories are fantasy, and half are the kind I love – about outer space, post or pre-apocalyptic life, and Mars.
Two women ready for a move to mars, one makes a very long distant phone call and receives the encouragement she needs to take that step. In the ‘s, Bradbury predicted the state we are in today – instant communication, too much communication brought about by technology that never shuts up.
Highly paid time travel companies take people back in time to hunt a curnto. This one is a classic – a peafon steps on a butterfly in prehistoric times and this changes life in the present. A husband and wife travel by horseback. Work had polished the nails of those hands with a polish you could never buy in a bottle.
The touching of children had made them soft, and the raising of children had made them temperately stern, and the loving of a husband had made them gentle. And now, death made them tremble.
Garbage trucks are outfitted with radio controls to pick up bodies if there is a nuclear war. Every tale in this book has a deeper meaning, something to say about the human condition, soul. The way Bradbury captures human nature so perfectly is what always amazes about his writing. Many of the stories reveal the political ideologies of their time. From the threat of nuclear war to the unknown of interplanetary travel, these themes continue to pop up throughout this book.
Some of the stories are a little abstract, but there are enough solid pieces to make the weaker stories almost negligible. Some of these sci-fi stories give you the sense that he eventually turned the idea into one of his famous books. For more reviews of books and movies like this, please visit www.

I’ve only read Martian Chronicles previously, peatpn I love the way Bradbury’s descriptions and cadence really flow naturally.
Epaton one of the things Stephen King does so well also. All but maybe a couple of these stories are solid little tales. The quality is just so much higher than something like a Richard Matheson collection, which executes interesting ideas in bradbry flat and tiresome manner.

It was actually very refreshing to read something so close to HPL in subject pdaton tone, but not as overwrought even though that is one of the unique pleasures of Lovecraft’s prose. Brradbury to have come across this out-of-print edition, its cover is so superior ep the later editions but not quite as nice as the original.
One of the best collections of American short stories, even if pewton of them are technically science-fiction.
