This is a collection of short stories and poems varying in length from only one page to twenty five. At the beginning of the book Bradbury makes it clear that many were written very quickly after an idea came to him, consequently many of the stories are (or at least feel) unfinished and incomplete. This is unusual for Bradbury and I found it rather unsettling.
All in all there were some gems in the book but also some that went too wide of the mark. Some of the stories could have been first class if more work had gone into them.
A bit of a disappointment and there are many better books written by Bradbury which should be read first.
The twenty-two offerings in this book generally run the gamut from amateurish ("Ma Perkins Comes to Stay") to incomprehensible ("Doubles" and "Miss Appletree and I") to just plain stupid ("Pater Caninus"). For me, most of them fell into the Why Bother? category. The one stab at science fiction, "Fly Away Home", while containing a good concept at its core, is hopelessly outdated. Only one, "Arrival and Departure", is passably intriguing (3 stars). In it, an aged couple discovers that the monotonous comfort and familiarity that derive from forty-five years of marriage are not easily displaced.
Famous and accomplished authors should resist the pressure from publishers to trot-out old jottings for the purpose of milking the reading public for a few more dollars.
You know those bins at the used-book stores marked "3 for $1"? WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS is best lumped there with the other bookshelf residue.
