The Golden Apples of the Sun

By Ray Bradbury

Rating: 4 stars

This is a collection of SF and non-genre short stories that Bradbury wrote in the ‘forties and ‘fifties, all with the general theme of characterisation, people and the desires of men and monsters. The tales are told with Bradbury’s trademark flare and style, something that captivates me every time, even when the story itself fails to engage.

As well as containing classic Bradbury shorts like A Sound of Thunder, The Pedestrian, and The Fog Horn, non-SF stories such as The Flying Machine, The Golden Kite, The Silver Wind and The Meadow all leave searing images that linger in the mind.

As with every other Bradbury book I’ve ever read, highly recommended.
