Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
Started this book on my flight back from India to the States. It’s not a long read, but it took me awhile to plow through it. I think it’d be a fun book to read for a young kid, but as an adult, it just seemed dated and a bit too “aw shucks” to me (There are a lot of old fifties-ish expressions in the book).
One aspect of this book I enjoyed was that it did paint a nice picture of a time (October/fall/Halloween) and a place (small town).
Definitely no Fahrenheit 451. Get it for your kids (if you have any looking for a fun Halloween-ish book to read).
