The Illustrated Man

The Illustrated Man, Ray Bradbury

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Illustrated Man is comprised of short stories from a variety of subgenres, with heavy emphasis on rocket ships and space travel/extraterrestrial civilization within our solar system which provide a backdrop for his social commentary.

My favorites from this collection are: “The Veldt,” “The Highway,” “The Long Rain,” “The Fox and the Forest,” and “The City.”

An enjoyable read but, while I love Bradbury, this collection is not my favorite of his works.
