This is one of the few books I would say made a better movie than a story. The book didn't seem to flow in Bradbury's usual style; instead, the words sounded clunky together. I think the author dwelled a bit too long inside the character's heads and didn't progress the story with enough action. Also, one of the characters was "The Sand Witch." I couldn't take that seriously, as I kept imagining a flying ham on rye.

Recommended for those who love Bradbury anyway. Do yourself a favor and read this before you see the movie, as you'll no doubt want to read the book after watching it on the screen.
