Publisher's Summary

Few American novels written this century have endured in the heart and mind as has this one - Ray Bradbury's incomparable masterwork of the dark fantastic.
A carnival rolls in sometime after the midnight hour on a chill Midwestern October eve, ushering in Halloween a week before its time. A calliope's shrill siren song beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. In this season of dying, Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. And two inquisitive boys standing precariously on the brink of adulthood will soon discover the secret of the satanic raree-show's smoke, mazes, and mirrors, as they learn all too well the heavy cost of wishes - and the stuff of nightmare.

more for reading visually than in audio

I found the story too meandering to follow well in this form. The narrator didn't particularly help, but he did suit the story.

Not for me

Any additional comments?

Gave the book a try as it is not the usual book I would listen to. I give up on chapter twenty eight. The book never gripped me and I was disappointed with it.
I would listen to another book by this narrator.
