    " Creepy. Read for Halloween. I'm just looking or the carousel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sanja | 1/25/2014

    " I love this book. Bradbury is a master storyteller. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Arseniy Popov | 1/24/2014

    " Nice. I don't always like his style though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brevandy | 1/15/2014

    " I love Ray Bradbury's ecomnomical and intense writing style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 1/3/2014

    " While this was far from a bad book, it did not quite live up to the glowing review that caused me to read it. The great review on NPR. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Lazarus | 12/16/2013

    " Read this while I was in college. Something to get my mind off of my studies. I don't know, maybe it was the fact that it was Fall, but I could smell the autumn leaves and the characters just came to life for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Taylor Porter | 12/11/2013

    " My first Bradbury attempt ends in failure. Stylistically speaking I could not get over the hump. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabriel | 12/3/2013

    " Magical imagery. Flowery prose. Would have been the best book ever for a teenage boy per tv/Internet. Still very entertaining. Reminded me of night circus. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sooziemac McLaughlin | 11/28/2013

    " One of my fave books ever! Must re-read again soon. I was actually just thinking about this book yesterday, and today I get a notice Mark had just read it. Another case of synchronicity? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naomi | 11/21/2013

    " I loved this book. It was suspenseful and scary and I could not put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ian | 11/18/2013

    " This reread was rprfect for October :) Now, on to my next Halloween read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gene Fiebich | 11/10/2013

    " I don't remember much of the storyline.. It was assigned reading for my freshman literature class. I did enjoy it and found it a compelling read. Hard to go wrong with Ray Bradbury. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leonard | 11/6/2013

    " One of my favorite books of all time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacy | 11/2/2013

    " This book is like dark poetry. I plan to re-read at Halloween. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 9/2/2013

    " Horrendously hard to struggle through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Charnock | 3/26/2013

    " I enjoyed this! I wish I had read it when I was in my adolescent/teenage years, as I think I would have been able to relate to it and would have enjoyed it more. Nonetheless, Bradbury's writing is beautiful. The images he evokes are gorgeous; love, love, LOVE his writing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil Mauracher | 5/16/2012

    " I read this when I was a kid and wished this carnival would come to my town. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrienne Kern McClintock | 4/24/2012

    " I was reading this when Bradbury died, and had never read it before. It's a weird one. I might have enjoyed it more if I'd done it all in one sitting, rather than on the bus and at random. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melisa Blankenship | 11/19/2011

    " One of Bradbury's best books. He looks at evil trying to overtake good most succinctly in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erythrina | 7/8/2011

    " The only thing I regret about this book, is that I haven't read it when I was younger. Would have loved this one as a kid. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 5/17/2011

    " Probably my 15th time or more to read this book. It is a staple in my classroom - the only book I taught this year. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meha | 5/17/2011

    " Boring. Too much description. Hated it. Didn't even finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/16/2011

    " My favorite book of all time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caryn | 5/13/2011

    " This book scared the hell out of me as a kid, and I think it's the reason I've never really trusted those carnivals that seem to spring up overnight in the parking lots of shopping malls... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 5/9/2011

    " An eerie carnival rolls into town after midnight, a small town is mesmerised by the stories. Not a book to be read alone on a dark and stormy night. Bradbury is a master of the short story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 5/3/2011

    " Ray Bradbury is a genius. Sometimes I would read a sentence in this book and re-read it five times because it was so well-written. He chooses words so carefully and describes his characters and emotions in the book better than any author I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyn | 4/27/2011

    " I read this in 8th or 9th grade and absolutely LOVED it (I only rate it four stars, because I haven't read it recently). It was one of the first dark stories that captured my attention and held me until the last page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pingdi | 4/24/2011

    " Quite the horrifying gruesome story. Best read around Halloween ;) "
