Something Wicked this Way Comes
By Ray Bradbury-Hardcover-289 pages

Any reader fond of the Harry Potter series, or even the works of Stephen King will undoubtedly enjoy the intricate yet convoluted tale that is Something Wicked This Way Comes. Set in the sleepy town of Greentown, Illinois, best friends William Halloway and Jim Nightshade are shocked by the arrival of an ominous carnival in the middle of October; and they quickly learn that there is more to the Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show than meets the eye...

Bradbury triumphs in creating a cryptic, unbelievably detailed plot that will keep the reader guessing from beginning to end. Jim and William are believable protagonists that contrast poetically against the backdrop of surreal, supernatural antagonists.
