it was amazing

in my junior high library, my name was the only one on the check-out card, and it filled up both sides. i was obsessed with this book as a kid. it's a midwestern boyhood adventure haunted by a mysterious circus. and ray bradbury's prose is so beautiful, especially how he writes about the midwest and it's marvelous possibilities. the sensory descriptions in this book are incredibly powerful - the smells and touch of the eerie wind and the noise of the creaking metal of the circus rides. it is definitely a boy book - certainly not a go girl read, so be aware of that starting out.
