Something Wicked This Way Comes

Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury is the story of two boys, James Nightshade and William Halloway. It is the story of the evil that grips their small Midwestern town with the arrival of one Autumn midnight. It tells how the boys save the town. It is great reading.

Ray Bradbury excels in revealing the dark side in us all, teaching us ultimately to celebrate the shadows and not fear them. In many ways, this is a companion piece to his joyful, nostalgia-drenched Dandelion Wine, in which Bradbury presented us with one perfect summer as seen through the eyes of a 12-year-old. In Something Wicked This Way Comes, he deftly explores the fearsome delights of one perfectly terrifying, unforgettable autumn.
