Dandelion Wine

Dandelion Wine - Ray Bradbury Before today, I had read 3 Ray Bradbury novels. Based on those books, I decided to divide his works into 2 camps: Best Shit I Have Ever Read and Martian Chronicles Redux.

Fahrenheit 451 and Something Wicked This Way Comes both fall into Best Shit I Have Ever Read. The Martian Chronicles make me wonder how that boring book came from the same mind as the other 2 books.

Today, I finished Dandelion Wine. And before I got to end, I knew what camp it was going in - Martian Chronicles Redux. It didn't enthrall me. It didn't wow me. It didn't transport me to a wonderful place. It was just there. I am amazed the man who churned out Dandelion Wine also wrote Fahrenheit and Something Wicked.

However, my love of Ray Bradbury is unchanged. So please enjoy this tribute to his greatness...
