Ray Bradbury’s A Medicine For Melancholy collection was a pleasant surprise after reading several horrible books in a row. This collection is full of stories that are sometimes scary, sometimes sad, and sometimes puzzling to the emotions. Most of the stories in this volume impressed me, even the ones that talked about rockets and Mars, which seemed to be every other one. A few of them are incredibly memorable like The Wonderful Ice-Cream Suit because of its erie but comical quality. I also loved All Summer In A Day which is an imaginative and impossible story about a small girl’s huge disappointment on the planet Venus. The Town Where No One Got Off is yet another memorable story that made me wonder what would happen if I just got off the train at a town in the middle of no where without telling anyone. Great collection with very few duds in the mix.
