    The carnival rolls in sometime after midnight, ushering in Halloween a week early. The shrill siren song of a calliope beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. In this season of dying, Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. And two boys will discover the secret of its smoke, mazes, and mirrors; two friends who will soon know all too well the heavy cost of wishes. . .and the stuff of nightmare.

    Few American novels written this century have endured in the heart and memory as has Ray Bradbury's unparalleled literary classicSOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. For those who still dream and remember, for those yet to experience the hypnotic power of its dark poetry, step inside. The show is about to begin.The carnival rolls in sometime after midnight, ushering in Halloween a week early.

    • Interesting

      This book was written many years ago, the way the characters speak and how they interact with each other is a bit old fashioned. Still, the book was imaginative.

      I liked it. It's the only other book I've read by him other than fahrenheit 451. I bought it expecting more political censorsip topics, but it ended up speaking more about living life. Parts were inspirational, the rest was good story telling. It was a fun easy read.
