I don't read many short stories but I'm glad that I made an exception. It was one of the more fortunate christmas surprises I get from my parents for Christmas not just because I read some Bradbury's novels before but the stories themselves are worth reading.
They are scary and creepy, dreamy and sad, suspenseful and thought-provoking. They are about worlds far away in the future but also about the worlds near us. These short stories combine traveling to different planets with human emotions and

Kaleidoskop alebo smrť na 70 spôsobov.

Väčšina tých dobrých dielov Aktov X musela byť tak či onak inšpirovaná Bradburym, len poéziu nahradili bizarnosťou.

Certes, lire en anglais nécessite plus de concentration que mes lectures habituelles mais j'ai aimé cet exercice et tenterai de le réitérer.
Les nouvelles de ce recueil sont très intéressantes et pour la plupart encore follement actuelles.
Il faudra que je les relise en français pour être sûre de ne rien avoir laissé de côté.

Kaleidoscope by Ray Bradbury
Where to Find It: The Illustrated Man, The Stories of Ray Bradbury
First Published: Thrilling Wonder Stories, October 1949
Plot Synopsis: A rocket crew experiences a catastrophic explosion onboard their ship, finding themselves cast out into space, going off in separate directions, yet still able to communicate to one another over helmet radios as they each come to terms with their inevitable fates.

Lielai daļai grāmatas stāstu noskaņojums ir diezgan nomācoši depresīvs un tikai daži beidzas ar cerību par labāku nākotni. Jāņem vērā, ka stāsti sarakstīti laikā, kad kosmosa iekarošana, marsieši, spīdīgas raķetes bija jauns un ļoti aktuāls motīvs, šobrīd lasot tas var kļūt nedaudz apnīkoši.

Izcelt varētu stāstu - "Viņi bija tumšu ādu, zelta acīm".

familiar to his Best of or Illustated Woman digest, many stories are fine with charm and skills of writing of author.

5 stars are : The Coffin,The Lake,Marionetts Inc.,Sound of Thunder
4,5 stars : Punishment Without Crime,The City

Most of others are among 3 and 4 stars.

This is the acting edition of the play version of the Ray Bradbury story "Kaleidoscope." I have read this story in several versions now, and I have always thought it is a good one. However, I think I have read it too much now and I have grown a bit weary of it.

Lielisks Bredberija stāstu krājums, kuru ik pa brīdim caurvij "Marsiešu hroniku" tēma, kas būs īpaši interesanti, ja šis darbs ir jau izlasīts. Bredberijs marsam piešķir īpašu vietu atomkara(vai gara nolemtības) priekšvakarā, kas būtībā ir aktuāli vēl joprojām.Smeldzīgi,mistiski un mazliet nolemti.

3 1/2 stars. Seven astronauts are lost in space, but can still communicate via the headsets in their helmets. I read the one act script of this story. This could be really cool to stage with interesting lighting.

This might be my favorite Bradbury story. I always enjoy stories about the fear and confusion associated with death. This drew that fear out into something to be rationalized and dealt with.

Asi nejlepší výběr Bradburyho povídek, co u nás kdy vyšel.

Spíše 3,5. Četla jsem jen několik povídek, a ty byly vcelku dobré :)
