This was a three star story for me, a third of the way through. It took me awhile to get into the imagination of Mr. Bradbury in this tale. At the beginning, I wasn't sure if I was reading about a dream/nightmare of the young Will & Jim. The two inseparable, best friends since birth. But, the last part and wrap up, Mr. Bradbury's message is clear. The friendships, the fear of loss, can we laugh at Death? And the wonder of how well you know your own father. As Jim's new hero, his dad Charles, says to himself..."Is Death important? No. Everything that happens before Death is what counts." That right there wrapped it up very well for me.
