Ray Bradbury’s “Something Wicked This Way Comes”
I’ve recently been introduced to a new author, well, he’s not new to be, but I’ve never read him, and was recommended by an author friend of mine – Ray Bradbury and his book “Something Wicked This Way Comes”. I’ve since downloaded the book onto my Kindle and have read the first couple of chapters, and so far I really like what I’ve read. The narrative voice for me, takes me back to a time of great youthful story-telling and I can’t wait to see how the story turns out.
In the meantime, read this wonderful write-up by author Jeff Suwak here: Ray Bradbury’s “Something Wicked This Way Comes”.
Mr. Suwak has attached a link to the movie at the end of his review – and I, for one, plan to watch it tonight.
Till next time,
Here’s a little snippet of his post:
“I never understood the appeal of ‘cool,’ and I doubt that Bradbury did, either. In the grave we’ll be damn cold forever, and shivering wish we had time to run again beneath the open sky and be wild and loud and alive. Ray understood that. He knew it and never forgot it and embedded that wisdom in his stories.
See, Uncle Ray wasn’t cool. No, he was full of fire and compassion, venom and love, fits of dancing. He was alive. Even in his later years of life, in interviews he shook the camera glass with the force of his vitality. He always said a writer should love life first. Only after loving life should he or she touch pen to paper. That internal fire is on display in Something Wicked This Way Comes. The book is a gift left behind by crazy old Uncle Ray, for us to return to whenever we need to be reminded of certain things.”
