Book Club

book cover imageOur first Kirkwood ReadTogether was Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury.

Did you read it?  What did you think?

We still have copies available at the reference desk!

Jen’s comments: Ray Bradbury has a very distinct style that seems, at first, to get in the way of the story.  I mean, I just wanted it to get to the action! But, all that descriptive narrative really does serve a purpose- when the odd, horrible things start happening in the story, I felt I was part of the characters’ brains- I was calm, sunny Will who looked away from the dark things; I was frenetic, buzzing Jim who ran toward all the dark things. I loved it! It was creepy, it was disturbing, it was is a classic horror story!
