Reviews of From the Dust Returned (2001)

Review by mrdude (2005-02-22)
From the Dust Returned by Ray Bradbury is a Halloween tale of an enchanted house in Illinois and it's peculiar residents.

I found this book to be slow going at first, almost as though the author wasn't sure where he planned to go with the book. It is actually a compiling of many short stories Bradbury has written over the years and often times I felt that the book lacked the flow it would have if it had been written in one go. The writing style is hard to describe, very embellished and relying more on description than events occurring. Still a good book and a main story line does reveal itself by the time the reader finishes the book. I would suggest some of the authors other works before this one although it was fun and a very quick read.
