5.0 out of 5 stars Scary, 25 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Something Wicked This Way Comes (Paperback)
The first time (and admitedly I was quite young) I had this book read to me, I was terrified, awed and inspired by it. The characters are remarcably easy to relate to, are complex yet archytypal. The second time, I read it myself this time, it blew me away yet again. I was often moved to tears. The theme of age is a major one in this book, and it must be know its no mere childrens book, nor "young adult fiction" it's complex and fascinating when read at any age. The story is based on a carnival that comes to town, where all is not quite what it seems, the attraction that draws the characters into the plot is "the most beautiful woman in the world". The smell of candy floss is on the air and a lightning rod salesman warns of dire things to come.
