Bradbury's choice of words are all his own style. Every writer needs something to sepearte themselves from the rest and Ray Bradbury does this by describing things in ways people would not ordinarily think. I personally like his stlye of writing because it paints an image in your mind.


"The current science fiction writers are a bunch of jerks. As for cyberpunk, it's crap -- you can't read it."--Ray Bradbury

I totally agree with chris. If you want another human being that bad then make one the right way. None of this playing God crap.

I like when Charles is forcing Will to dance with him while his best friend is dead on the ground...Bradbury describes Charles expressions like....
As Charles Halloway pulled faces, poppped his eyes, mashed his nose, winked, cavorted like chimpanzee-ape, waltzed with wind, tap-danced the dust...

Bradbury describes all those in such different terms than normal people. Its really fun to read and acknowledge.

Well that takes way to long for the baby to grow up and do the things you needed the clone for. Although I do think cloning is a bad idea.

First off, I think this thread is a good example of how TV has affected thought patterns and attention span. Why do these young people expect/want things to be short/simple?
Second, do they think clones just pop into existence full-grown? (Sounds like they need to do some more difficult reading.)
Also on the subject of cloning- Did anyone else see a news article not too long ago about someone cloning a (gelded) championship racehorse, for breeding purposes? Hmmmm...

I completly agree with you, I read an interview with Bradbury and he said that he has these voices in his head. I think only he can understand them, and he tells others about them by writing.

I agree with you. Can you imagine how Will feels when his Dad is trying to get him to dance and sing with all the commotion, and evil. Bradbury explains the situation so in depth that it is almost as though you are there yourself.

I comletely agree with you, if you want something you have to go get it for yourself. Cloning is dangerous and very risky.
