  5. It s 100 stories so some will be better than others I would describe them as imaginative, thrilling, moving, thought provoking, prescient, nostalgic and extremely well written I love the way he uses language.I will never finish this collection or Volume 2 I have been reading and re reading these...

  6. A rather amazing collection of stories from Bradbury, showcasing his imagination, his ability to shift tone and topics, and his fantastic use of language As a side note I think I deserve a medal for accomplishing the Herculean task of getting through this nearly 1000 page tome.

  8. Great collection of stories This and Volume 2 highly recommended for such a breadth and fun collection to keep near by and dip into whenever.
