I have read some short stories in my life, and most of them have left me in a strange state of mind. I think that is the whole reason for writing a short story.
But I have to admit that I haven’t read/listened to many stories that top some of the tales in this audio book. Some stories are really weird, I don’t know what to think of them.
With this audiobook it’s not just someone paid for reading the stories, it’s Ray Bradbury himself. It’s not that he is such a good actor, but he knows the most about every story, giving you some hints on how to interpret some passages.
What makes this book really special is that he introduces every story, telling where and when he got inspired, even some techniques he uses. This is very enlightening.
If you aren’t afraid of weird stories, and interested how they were conceived, this book is for you.
