If you're familiar with Bradbury, I doubt you need to read reviews of this book, which is one of his most popular and was also made into a movie featuring several of the stories. If you're somehow ignorant of Ray Bradbury's short stories, this is a great place to start. This is one of my favorite collections of Bradbury short stories. Nearly all of the stories are science fiction or have elements of science fiction, but several of them might also be more accurately defined as horror, and a few would qualify as fantasy. Regardless of how you classify his style, there's no debate that he was truly a wonderful story teller.
