Ray Bradbury takes the listener to a most wondrous and unexpected destination: the heart of the Eternal Family.

A gala homecoming will reunite this odd and remarkable family: Father, arisen from the Earth; Mother, who never sleeps but dreams; Cecy, the fairest and most special daughter; and Timothy, the sad foundling son who must share it all.

Always ambitious, From the Dust Returned is the long awaited novel by peerless storyteller Ray Bradbury, an audiobook that sears with image and a quiet poetry that will surely be numbered among his most enduring masterworks.

    " Now, I have a facination with 'Monster Families' to begin with, so when I had read one of the stories from this collection by itself, I was immediatly curious as to the nature of the tale. So I tracked it down and came across this book. Those who are not used to the sometimes lyrical writing nature of Bradbury may not enjoy this collection. It goes from the beginning of the existance of the house, to the end when it gets swept away due to the changing nature of the world. All in all, I found it to be an enjoyable read, and one that I managed to get done in a fairly quick amount of time. It never disapointed me, though as far as a lot of the tension in the stories went, I found that it was never too intense, but rather, more of a gentle read for nights where you were curled up on your couch with a glass of whine and perhaps some cheese. This book was a pleasure to read, and to me shows that Bradbury is truly one of the best writers of our time. I will definatly be reading this book again. "

    " If you've seen my other reviews (in all their conciseness), you'll know that i tend to lavish praise on almost all of my literary conquests. this is one of several instances where lavish praise is in fact due. much like "Something Wicked This Way Comes", Bradbury's prose has the vague, dreamy quality of an elderly master story-teller who sits in front of his campfire, with phrases and parables that crawl into the bottom back of your brain and lodge themselves there, much like Cecy Elliot from this book would do if she were real. and whatsmore, this book is slightly autobiographical, since Bradbury states that the characters are based on some of his real family members (I guess that makes little Timothy the historian little Ray). and its sad, i think that now Bradbury himself has returned to the dust, but these tales will live on, bat wings, mists, papyrus, and all. and i think its time you, the reader of this review, owed it to Ray Bradbury to read this book five decades in the making. and it will enchant you from your attic place to the dust from whence you came.

    " This is easily one of my favorite novels, it made me decide to be a monster. "
