Publisher's Summary

Ray Bradbury is a modern cultural treasure. His disarming simplicity of style underlies a towering body of work unmatched in metaphorical power by any other American storyteller. And here are 32 of his most famous tales - prime examples of the poignant and mysterious poetry that Bradbury uniquely uncovers in the depths of the human soul, the otherwordly portraits that spring from the canvas of one of the century's great men of imagination.
From a lonely coastal lighthouse to a 60-million-year-old safari, from the pouring rain of Venus to the ominous silence of a murder scene, Ray Bradbury is our sure-handed guide not only to surprising and outrageous manifestations of the future but also to the wonders of the present that we could never have imagined on our own.

Like a warm bath

I loved this book. Each short story had fascinating ideas while being incredibly touching and humane.

My one reservation is to do with the production. There is very little to mark the end of one tale and the start of the next. As a result I often found myself lost when I was listening to a new scenario while still imagining the previous one.

That aside, I enjoyed it very much and I expect to listen to this book several more times.
