I'm familiar with both of those stories. The one with the playroom is on one of my books on tapes of his... Doesn't strike me as something that'd grab Z, but I could be wrong. The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit Zoe has a prejudice against - she is sick of hearing her grandmother talk about how much she likes the movie version of it.

i really want to see the movie... i saw it reviewed on the Unknown Movies site

it may be a cliche, but if you take away the twist ending, 'A Sound of Thunder' is about people hunting dinosaurs. i don't know Zoe, but i know that when i was that age, and when my sibs were that age, we all loved dinosaurs. so maybe you could do something with that...

i'm so jealous... i've never met Bradbury, and he's one of my creative heroes


i'm thinking some of his more abstract stuff could work like when i read 'Jabberwocky' to my little bro-- dosen't need to make sense, but the langauge is good

Hooray! I just bought a Ray Bradbury comic adaptation they do 5 stories in comic book form. I'd only read one of them too... so it was pretty cool.

And I would also like to say, since I am just now posting in this Ray Bradbury thread, my fav Bradbury book is the Martian Chronicles! Yay!

Dang, I haven't posted in thsi thread yet? I just bought 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea again, and it's a good book, but mostly I bought it for Bradbury's magnificent essay, "The Ardent Blasphemers," where he compares Nemo to Ahab.

You could do a Bradbury year:

Spring: Green Shadows, White Whale
Summer: Fahrenheit 451
Autumn: The October Country or Something Wicked This Way Comes
Winter: ??

You could switch it up and do Green Shadows, White Whale in the winter and Dandelion Wine in the spring.

Anyone wanting to discuss Ray Bradbury, his message board is badly in need of traffic.

Also, does anyone read this board? I made a couple of posts recently with no responses. Thanks.

No, not really. There's a few active discords, and Facebook groups, though.

Thanks. Facebook is not very good for discussing literature because you need to have a thread on a topic and be able to find it again.
