really liked it
bookshelves: 20th-centurylit-late, horror
Read in September, 2009

I found this paperback on my boyfriend's shelf and wanted to throw something at him for not bringing it to my attention sooner as I love all things Bradbury. I was surprised and pleased to find it's actually an illustrated version of some of Bradbury's more popular stories. The graphic novel/comic book approach was old-school and enjoyable, and Bradbury's portrayal of children is both touching and frightening (I'm convinced Bradbury's terrified of children, and rightly so). The Little Assassin has long been a favorite story, and the small illustrated version in this copy didn't detract even an iota from my initial feelings.

It'll be a sad day for me when Bradbury dies.
