Few American novels written this century have endured in th heart and mind as has this one-Ray Bradbury's incomparable masterwork of the dark fantastic. A carnival rolls in sometime after the midnight hour on a chill Midwestern October eve, ushering in Halloween a week before its time. A calliope's shrill siren song beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. In this season of dying, Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. And two inquisitive boys standing precariously on the brink of adulthood will soon discover the secret of the satanic raree-show's smoke, mazes, and mirrors, as they learn all too well the heavy cost of wishes -- and the stuff of nightmare.… (meer)

Bradbury es una de mis asignaturas pendientes del mundo de la fantasía y la ciencia ficción, aunque en realidad tengo tantas que no terminaría nunca la lista. De hecho, hasta ahora solo había leído de él [b:Fahrenheit 451|17470674|Fahrenheit 451|Ray Bradbury|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1366411587s/17470674.jpg|1272463] y [b:Zen in the Art of Writing|103761|Zen in the Art of Writing|Ray Bradbury|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1385688086s/103761.jpg|2183601], ello a pesar de que durante mucho tiempo fue el típico autor que siempre encontrabas en las estanterías de los centros comerciales en los que comprábamos nuestros libros porque no había sitios mejores donde hacerlo.

Sobre este libro puedo decir que me ha sorprendido porque no era lo que esperaba. Si dicha sorpresa es buena o mala lo habré de decidir cuando lo rumie bien, pero hay una clave muy importante para mí en ello: me ha parecido literatura infantil o, si acaso, juvenil, no algo dirigido a un público más adulto. Quizá sea porque los protagonistas son jovencitos y los adultos que salen son bastante inmaduros (en el buen sentido de la palabra), pero me ha parecido una historia casi perfecta para iniciar a los púberes y adolescentes tempranos en este tipo de literatura.

Sobre las influencias que esta novela dejó para el futuro, me ha recordado bastante a [a:Stephen King|3389|Stephen King|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1362814142p2/3389.jpg] y también un poco a [b:Little, Big|90619|Little, Big|John Crowley|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1347231418s/90619.jpg|518635], aunque esta última es tan ramita y poco lineal que podríamos citar casi cualquier influencia para ella.

Heillandi hryllingssaga. Tveir strákar átta sig á því að eitthvað er meira en lítið bogið við komu sirkuss til smábæjarins þar sem þeir búa. Svo virðist sem að ætlun sirkussfólksins sé önnur og verri en bara að skemmta bæjarbúum. Bradbury byggir upp hrylling og spennu á áhrifaríkan máta í sögu sem er barátta milli góðs og ills. ( )

This is a full cast play that takes all the narrative out and leaves a bit too much to the listener to interpret with the help of the Foley operator and amazingly sparse dialogue. Even radio plays have more to offer than this version of the story. I plan to listen to the full book next. ( )

Two boys have their friendship and their courage tested when a sinister carnival comes to their small, late-October town. I suspect Bradbury himself may have made a dark deal with a demonic side show hustler at some point in his career, because his way with words and the stories he wields them to tell is so good it must be supernatural. Everything about this book is gorgeous: the plot is perfectly creepy without staining the comforting and nostalgic small-town setting, and the characters are perfectly drawn. The bad guys are instilled with just the right amount of pure wickedness without feeling like caricatures, and the heroes are so wonderfully human that you can feel your heart breaking for both wanting to cry for them and the happiness they cause in you. Will's father in particular now has a place high in the ranks of Best Fictional Fathers of All Time, right up there with Danny the Champion of the World's dad. I feel I'm gushing, but this book is worth it, as are all the Bradbury books I've read. I'm telling you folks, he really must have met a carnival of his own at some crossroads or other and given in to the temptations he has his own characters face, and so help me I'm glad he did. ( )

I had a great time listening to this! It contains a full cast and music. Honestly I felt as though I could be sitting in a theatre watching a play. I know this will be an audiobook I listen to again and again. This version, which is only 2 hours in length, is perfect for a spooky Halloween read. Pop some popcorn and dim the lights! ( )

Man is in love, and loves what vanishes.
W.B. Yeats

They sleep not, except they have done mischief;
And their sleep is taken away,
  unless they cause some to fall.
For they eat the bread of wickedness,
And they drink the wine of violence.
Proverbs 4:16-17

Informatie afkomstig uit de Engelse Algemene Kennis. Bewerk om naar jouw taal over te brengen.
Why love the woman who is your wife? Her nose breathes in the air of a world that I know; therefore I love that nose. Her ears hear music I might sing half the night through; therefore I love her ears. Her eyes delight in seasons of the land; and so I love those eyes. Her tongue knows quince, peach, chokeberry, mint and lime; I love to hear it speaking. Because her flesh knows heat, cold, affliction, I know fire, snow, and pain. Shared and once again shared experience. Billions of prickling textures. Cut one sense away, cut part of life away. Cut two senses; life halves itself on the instant. We love what we know, we love what we are. Common cause, common cause, of mouth, eye, ear, tongue, hand, nose, flesh, heart, and soul.
"Sometimes the man who looks happiest in town, with the biggest smile, is the one carrying the biggest load of sin. There are smiles and smiles; learn to tell the dark variety from the light. The seal-barker, laugh-shouter, half the time he's covering up. He's had his fun and he's guilty. And men do love sin. Will, oh how they love it, never doubt, in all shapes, sizes, colors, and smells. Times come when troughs, not tables, suit our appetites. Hear a man too loudly praising others and look to wonder if he didn't just get up from the sty. On the other hand, that unhappy, pale, put-upon man walking by, who looks all guilt and sin, why, often that's your good man with a capitol G, Will. For being good is a fearful occupation; men strain at it and sometimes break in two. I've known a few. You work twice as hard to be a farmer as his to be his hog. I suppose it's thinking about being good that makes the crack run up the wall one night. A man with high standards, too, the least hair falls on him sometimes wilts his spine. He can't let himself alone, won't lift himself off the hook if he falls just a breath from grace."
And, Will thought, here comes the carnival, Death like a rattle in one hand, Life like candy in the other; shake one to scare you, offer one to make your mouth water. Here comes the side show, both hands full!
