[PDF / Epub] ☉ Driving Blind By Ray Bradbury – Dolove.info

Driving Blind Driving Blind is such a disappointment I only liked one story in this Fee Fie Foe Fum , the rest were boring and the writing was not nearly up to Ray s usual standards Ray is known for the nostalgic quality of his writing but it was just overwhelming in this plus i found numerous stories to be rather sexist I don t remember thinking this about his other stories that I ve read That isn t even the worst thing about this book though Not one but two stories have incestuous cousin relationships and he portrays this as normal, even good And one was pretty much child molestation the kid is 12 but since it s happening to a boy it s ok and he likes it Barf Driving Blind was published in 1997 and most of the stories were written around then so there can be no excuse of oh it was written a long time ago, the times were different All I can say is I hope Ray got senile in his old age and didn t always think like this. The master at his best These stories are little gems, for the most part A few felt pedestrian and forced, thus the 4 stars Bradbury s writing is infused with unbridled optimism, with the continually renewed joy of discovery The best of the bunch is Someone in the Rain , heart wrenching and nostalgic in the Ray Bradbury style The other favorite of mine was That Bird That Comes Out of the Clock , a story loaded with humor, but rife with a truth that many a henpecking wife should heed.If you like Bradbury, you will like this collection. A fairly balanced later Bradbury collection, with a few clunkers I was happy to have another story from the October family and Heeber Finn s Pub I only wish that the number of stories left to read by Bradbury was not limited by his recent passing I enjoy the nostalgic, pragmatic, and naive nature of the characters he creates It s clear, Bradbury was a responsible child at heart. De repente, me vi apurado almorzando, tratando de no quitarle m s tiempo a la historia que, junto a sus personajes, se hab a quedado pegada en mi mente, con ese frezze tan car cteristico que aparec a en la imagen al poner pausa en ese viejo equipo VHS.As queda uno entusiasmado con los cuentos que trae sta recopilaci n de Bradbury Son veinti n relatos cargados de sorpresa, misterio y muchas gotas de suspenso. Un libro escrito por Bradbury a la edad de 76 a os lleno de nostalgia, melancol a y deseos por el pasado, son cuentos aparentemente sencillos con un final en apariencia sencillo y un desarrollo incluso m s mundano pero con un toque fant stico, son el tipo de cuentos que se digieren tiempo despu s de le dos y dejan una sensaci n agradable.Al menos Bradbury al igual que yo tampoco sabe conducir. I can t remember much of this book as I read is 5 years ago I think it might be time for a re read This was my first Bradbury although I don t remember the contents, I do remember being enamoured by Bradbudy s evocative writing and beautifully crafted characters Courtesy of Jen s mini reviews Sweet and melancholy nostalgia embedded in gorgeous prose That s how I would describe this collection of short stories from Ray Bradbury.They re also quirky, introspective, and surrealistic, and I loved every one 4.5 stars. 451 21 .
