Product description

Review

''Frightening in its implications . . . Mr. Bradbury's account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating.'' --New York Times

''[A] great science-fiction classic . . . (Audiobook narrator) Christopher Hurt reads this provocative story with the natural and compelling grace that it deserves.'' --Land Line (five-star review)

Review

'Another indispensible classic.' (The Times)

'Ray Bradbury has a powerful and mysterious imagination which would undoubtedly earn the respect of Edgar Allen Poe.' (The Guardian)

'As a science fiction writer, Ray Bradbury has long been streets ahead of anyone else.' (The Daily Telegraph)

'It is impossible not to admire the vigour of his prose, similes and metaphors constantly cascading from his imagination.' (The Spectator)

'No other writer uses language with greater originality and zest. he seems to be a American Dylan Thomas – with dsicipline.' (The Sunday Telegraph)
