I have that King one.
I listened to it on audio and I just finished. Shocking and appalling, really. Though I did come out of it with a strong, strong love for Mabel-the tenacious reporter, without whom, justice might never have been served. (I'm not sure it was wholly served anyway, but without Mabel the miscarriage of justice would probably have existed to this very day.)
I loves me some Bradbury and Dandilion Wine is one of his best novels, I think.
That's what I've heard! So far I'm enjoying it, but a few of the people reading it with me have set it down, so I guess it doesn't work for everyone. Then again, what does? :)
True - but I am surprised people couldn't even finish it. I'd have guessed it's more accessible than most novels since we've all been kids exploring the world around us at some point...
I think that's the problem. It's a bunch of kids wondering around a tame neighbourhood and nothing much happens. Not when compared to all the rather violent YA books out there currently.
Serial killer, time machine, the recognition of your own mortality - and there's no way Bradbury was aiming the book at teens.
