The October Country by Ray Bradbury

The October Country - Ray Bradbury

 

Finally! Finally, I've read this classic collection of short stories by Ray Bradbury. I'm so glad that I did. 

 

What can I say about this that hasn' t already been said? It's beautifully written. Some of the stories were so haunting,  I know that some of them will stick with me for the rest of my life: Ones like "The Scythe" and "The Dwarf", "Jack in the Box" and "Homecoming." 

 

Bradbury's style is sparse; he packs so much meaning into so few words. His prose is  so beautiful that, at times, the reader has to pause for a moment and savor it. Seriously, it's amazing.

 

I highly recommend this collection of short stories written by one of the masters of the form!
