An enchanting novel.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Dandelion Wine (Earthlight) (Paperback)
I first read "Dandelion Wine" when I was a sixteen-year-old schoolgirl. I was heavily into Science Fiction, and had read some of Bradbury's short stories. My favourite English teacher loaned me his copy of the novel.
I was surprised to find that it wasn't Science Fiction. However, I was soon enchanted by Bradbury's depiction of one golden summer in the life of an American boy.
I remember laughing and crying while I read the book. It was wonderful - sheer poetry.
I'm now a middle-aged woman, and Bradbury's words still move me. Read "Dandelion Wine". You won't regret it.
