I'm in the process of reading this novel (no spoilers until I've finished reading it, please). Has anyone else read this novel? What are your thoughts on it? Would you recommend this to someone else?
One of Ray Bradbury’s best-known and most popular novels, Something Wicked This Way Comes, now featuring a new introduction and material about its longstanding influence on culture and genre.
For those who still dream and remember, for those yet to experience the hypnotic power of its dark poetry, step inside. The show is about to begin. Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. The carnival rolls in sometime after midnight, ushering in Halloween a week early. A calliope’s shrill siren song beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. Two boys will discover the secret of its smoke, mazes, and mirrors; two friends who will soon know all too well the heavy cost of wishes…and the stuff of nightmares.
Few novels have endured in the heart and memory as has Ray Bradbury’s unparalleled literary masterpiece Something Wicked This Way Comes. Scary and suspenseful, it is a timeless classic in the American canon.[/i]
You know, I've never read this. I saw the movie based on it years ago, and Bradbury actually wrote the screenplay for it. Been a long time, but I don't think I liked the movie very much. Must not have or I'd have watched it again at some point, lol.
Bradbury is a great author, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
