Something wicked this way comes- Book Review


Something wicked this way comes -Ray Bradbury

Published by Gollancz

By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes – Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Will Halloway and Jim Nightshade are the best friends, they run everywhere side by side. Then Cooger and Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show, the carnival comes to town.

What follows is a nightmare of freakish dust witches, balloons and a dark carousel with a calliope calling the town promising youth, age and dreams. Ray Bradbury’s writing is just so expressive, almost poetic at times and it draws such a terrible, scary but exciting atmosphere of this carnival. Mr Dark is so menacing it gives you goosebumps. The tension builds and those cool dark nights make you want to pull the curtains and put the lights on….The ending is so good and you are left wondering, would I visit the hall or mirrors ?……I loved this book

Do not despair, just smile and laugh a little !
