    The Illustrated Man PDF/EPUB õ The Illustrated MOBI illustrated kindle, The Illustrated download, The Illustrated Man EpubI read a review once that described Robert A Heinlein as a creepy old uncle who drinks too much at parties and who makes embarrassing comments but who everyone likes in spite of his outdated ways – kind of a loveable rogue Ray Bradbury similar but by contrast is like the dotty old professor whom everyone cannot help but love and who overlook his eccentricities His stories are as warm and imaginative as a summer afternoon And all due respect to Fahrenheit 451 which is a fine novel but I submit that Bradbury’s great contribution to literature arises from his short stories he is a master of the medium And just as Heinlein Asimov and Clarke are the “Big Three” and are the masters and founders of modern science fiction Bradbury is an atavist a throwback to Wells and Jul

    The Illustrated Man PDF/EPUB õ The Illustrated MOBI illustrated kindle, The Illustrated download, The Illustrated Man EpubRay Bradbury was an absolute master storyteller whose writing was creative and full of moments of pure bitter irony he was an imaginative genius nothing nothing less Bradbury picks the bones of society clean he gnaws at them until he exposes the reality of the marrow beneath Each story in here has a piece of wisdom to share a resolution or disaster that could have been easily avoided if man was not so corrupt in his ways The I read of his writing the convinced I become that he was a misanthrope Time and time again he creates a situation that is pure and good yet somehow man destroys it with his self obsessed stupidity And this is his point humanity is a cancer “L

    The Illustrated Man PDF/EPUB õ The Illustrated MOBI illustrated kindle, The Illustrated download, The Illustrated Man EpubReading Bradbury a second and third time is like exploring a natural wonder finding and details and interconnections and wondering and about how something like this can be both created and function so well The amazing thing is that while recalling the short stories after getting absorbed by them one realizes that there is often no real violence many outer plots explosions and kidnappings Just the inner worlds of the characters and that magnificent all knowing narrator mixed with this smooth languageI find it fascinating how family trees of authors influencing each other are forming over generations as in this case with HG Wells and Jules Verne who influenced Bradbury who influenced King who influenced I don´t how many authors it might be billions And how similar the voice of an author becomes if he is in his XYauthor phase as for instance the older Stephen King short stories which remind me of Bradbury Read

    The Illustrated Man PDF/EPUB õ The Illustrated MOBI illustrated kindle, The Illustrated download, The Illustrated Man EpubThis is one of Ray Bradbury's earliest collections of short stories and the concept behind is quite brilliant On an early September day in Wisconsin the unnamed narrator meets the eponymous Illustrated Man a wandering carnie with incredible images tattooed across his body They are detailed colorful and mysterious and able to move on their own the narrator counts eighteen different illustrations each depicting what the Illustrated Man claims to be the futureUnfortunately both the concept and character of the Illustrated Man is never expanded upon and the Illustrated Man is nothing than a framing device for eighteen unrelated stories most if not all of which were published previously The stories themselves have nothing to do with the carnival the Illustrated Man and his life all are set in the future and explore universal themes via science fiction In Kaleidoscope a
