I had a hard time getting into this one. But once I was in, I was in for the long haul.

Bradbury seems to be hit or miss for me. I either love it or hate it and this one I disliked so much I couldn't even finish it.

A wonderfully creepy, lyrical book. Ray Bradbury's writing is amazing!

A very creepy book! It does take a while to get into it, but it's definitely worth a read.

Still the creepiest carnival I've ever read about. Highlights the strong bonds between father and son and two friends when an old Evil arrives in a small town.

This is a pretty good book. It has many good moments and fantastic writing. Like with all things, it does have its flaws, and some of the things are cliched, like good emotions vs. bad emotions. It's much more of a psychological thriller than an action thriller. Overall, it's a very good book. Read it when you want something a bit scary, but it's not a 100% profound masterpiece.

Didn't get a chance to finish this one although I would like to someday. The concept is intriguing but I find his stuff a little tough to get into sometimes. I'll put in in my 'for later shelf'.

Need, want, desire, we burn those in our fluids, oxidize those in our souls, which jet streams out lips, nostrils, eyes, ears, broadcasts from antennae-fingers, long or short wave, God only knows, but the freak-masters perceive Itches and come crab-clustering to Scratch. It's traveled a long way on an easy map, with people handy by every crossroad to lend it lustful pints of agony to power it on.
