    I Sing the Body Electric, a collection of short stories by Ray Bradbury gets less ink than the popular collections The Illustrated Man and The Martian Chronicles but perhaps better demonstrates his great range of literary ability and imagination Focusing on a central Bradbury theme of nostalgia, while straying from the science fiction and fantasy genre, I Sing the Body Electric is best illustrated by the title story, which is by far the best and is on a short list of the best o

    It s a good thing I m writing this review months after reading this book because a decent acid test for a short story collection is how many stories stick in your mind after you ve put some time between reading and reviewing or just plain old remembering.The centerpiece of the book is the title story, which was adapted into a Twilight Zone episode and a made for TV movie starring that kid from E.T whose name wasn t Elliot A dad buys a robot grandma to take care of his three children a

    I loved this book I was drawn to it because I was so entranced by The Twilight Zone s adaptation of I Sing The Body Electric this book really brings the wonderfully vibrant story and many others like it to life, and Ray Bradbury presents scenarios where the only limit to imagination is your mind and what you interpret from these fun little stories.

    Normally I find Bradbury a quaint and light read something I can easily fly through and admire his imagination For whatever reason, though, this time around I found him exhausting and tedious.There s a terrible stagnancy in Bradbury s fiction It seems he s always yearning for his past, and his future always seems to be some sort of recreation of the small mid West town ideology that he remembers from his childhood.And while he is conscious of the nuclear standoffs of his Cold War era, he seems deaf to other contem
