Read in April, 1997

Just reviewed Something Wicked This Way Comes, and felt like I should add this, too. First read it in English class as a junior in high school, taught by Mrs. Simmons, a wonderful English teacher who adored it. I share her opinion. Some might say this book is short on plot, and they'd be right. There isn't really any to speak of - the book is mostly a collection of short summer-archetypal vignettes. But the moments Bradbury describes manage to capture that innocent, sparkly, nostalgic quality belonging to my memories of summer as a kid, and he adds a depth, vibrancy, and humor that I really love. That first pair of new shoes, summer in the woods, the crazy neighbors, ice cream, Helen and Bill...sigh. Good stuff.

Don Incognito If Dandelion Wine has some of the same qualities of Something Wicked, I'm all the more interested in reading it.
