Highly Recommend - i thought the ending was disappointing (though others might love the twist), but i really enjoyed the fearful world the author created and the piecemeal manner in which the reader comes to understand it.

What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D
