it was amazing

This was actually my first Ray Bradbury story. It was probably also my first science fiction story. I never remembered the name, but I always remembered the story and the disturbing effect it had on me when I was a kid. That was twenty years ago, and this is the first time I've re-read it.

I might be looking back on this with some nostalgia goggles. I admit, the characters are flat (the wife is especially grating by the end), but it is a story that stuck with me for a long time. The idea behind it is haunting, and the imagery adds to the horror.
