Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

Spread the love

Stars: **1/2

I read this book the last few days of October (I thought I’d already reviewed it) for an online group however I was counting it towards an extra R.I.P. II Challenge book as well.

Lots of people read this book for the RIP challenge but I seem to be the only one who didn’t like it. I didn’t like it for the same reason others liked it. It’s too wordy for me. I don’t like long, detailed descriptions. I like short and concise. For me, the plot got lost in the descriptions. Half the time I had no idea what was going on.

The only other Bradbury I’ve read is The Halloween Tree which I loved and I’ll be trying Fahrenheit 451 in 2008 but if I don’t like that one, I’ll probably steer clear of Bradbury.
