The master of plot twists and character development, Ray Bradbury wrote several short stories that became an entire book. This is an excellent example of serial story telling and how different kinds of writing are developed. The content is exciting but sterile enough for most readers to enjoy. It’s a short book and a fast read but very interesting. This is a great link to science, creative writing, cultural studies and history as it was first published in the 1940’s and so many of the ideas have come to fruition.
