Whats your favorite work of ray bradbury?

Asked by Mtl_zack (6756points) May 6th, 2008

i liked his short story The Town That No One Got Off. i never would have read it unless my teacher had assigned it. also, A Sound Of Thunder taught me that everything has its purpose, a rule that i re-tell myself 100 times everyday.

Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles (Zach; why aren’t you doing your homework?}

Martian Chronicles. My dad read it to me when I was a kid as a bedtime story. A chapter a night. I had to recite something for a class in fourth grade, once, and memorized There Will Come Soft Rains, which is my absolute favorite part.

@gailcalled: ill get right on it mom. but seriously, i just read The Town Where No One Got Off for school and i was curious what other people thought.

Zach; just call me “granny”. And read everything that Bradbury wrote; you can’t go wrong.

I think that the story is called “The Veldt” or something like that. It’s from the Illustrated Man.

First story I read of his was A Sound of Thunder. I found it particularly striking. Another one that really effected me was All Summer in a Day.

A list of his works in wikipedia.

I like “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”
Creepy, but cool.

I hated Fahrenheit 451. Huge disappointment.

None really.

I like most of his early stuff. I read nearly all the short stories, and several of the novels. His stories are always just a little off, or sideways from reality.

@Allie – I just finished reading that recently – It Was excellent.
I also like DEATH IS A LONELY BUSINESS – it’s very “Bradbury”
