Something Wicked This Way Comes

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Few American novels written this century have endured in th heart and mind as has this one-Ray Bradbury's incomparable masterwork of the dark fantastic. A carnival rolls in sometime after the midnight hour on a chill Midwestern October eve, ushering in Halloween a week before its time. A calliope's shrill siren song beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. In this season of dying, Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. And two inquisitive boys standing precariously on the brink of adulthood will soon discover the secret of the satanic raree-show's smoke, mazes, and mirrors, as they learn all too well the heavy cost of wishes -- and the stuff of nightmare.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

The first part of this book really got me wondering if I had made a mistake in choosing to read it. After a fine introduction to the characters and setting, the story morphed into some type of hallucinogen induced, nightmarish, disjointed and wacky situation that I thought I would never comprehend. It seemed like when one awakes from a dream, and only remembers snippets of a dream that ultimately made no sense anyway...I was no less than 90% confused-but only until the end of part one. Then, magically, Mr. Bradbury brought all the loose ends together, in a fantastic manner, which made putting the book down next to impossible! This book is for everybody, it's well worth reading.
