Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A dark fantasy set in a small town, its people are brought to life so expertly readers feel very much like citizens...even when their adopted hometown is menaced by outside forces against which it is helpless. Bradbury’s prose is musical and hypnotic, fully engaging the senses and emotions. This is a book, once opened, that truly makes the real world disappear.” Science Fiction Magazine
“If rational beings had created the 100 best books of the century list, this one would surely have been on it.” Denver Rocky Mountain News
“Spectacular.” Phil Nichols, Bradbury Media, United Kingdom
“One of the great classics of fantasy…A nightmarishly gripping page-turner.” SFSite.com

A good family listen

I downloaded this audiobook because I’d heard really good things about it. And while I acknowledge the talent contained in this dramatization, it was a bit too cheesy for me. Quite over the top in many places. However, having said that, the story is engaging. It’s an interesting concept, and I will most likely read the novel to see if I enjoy it more that way. If you enjoy audio theater and are used to listening to a wide assortment of voices, you will probably enjoy this audiobook. I tend to gravitate toward more mature voices, and there are several children voice actors in this one. But, if you’re looking for something to do with the family around Halloween for a couple of hours, this would be a good diversion. It’s spooky and clever and I can see it appealing to both children and their parents. Just not my particular cup of tea.
