Hey Cormac, it's annoying when you don't wrap quotation marks around dialogue.

It's really annoying for the first chapter or two, until you get used to it, and only occasionally after that when it's not immediately clear what's dialogue and what isn't.

I don't think his novels would be any worse with quotation marks, and they'd be easier to read. He probably wouldn't be as famous, though. It's distinctive.

If they re-issued all of his books with proper quotation marks, I'd like them a LOT more.

The thing that got to me about this book (and the way it's written) is that when I'd finished it, the whole thing came off like some weird fever dream. I say that in a good way. It stuck with me for months after I read it. I think his punctuation style definitely added to that experience for me with this book.

It doesn't do the same for others of his that I've read though.

The book definitely reads like that. The only other one I've read by him, The Road, less so.

Judging from those two, the guy's pretty bleak.

Bradbury was the first author I fell in love with, and this book, particularly The Veldt were some of my earliest reading memories.

Bradbury has always been hit or miss with me and for every book of his I love there is another that disappoints me, this is particularly true of his short story collections. I loved The Veldt, The Other Foot, The Man and The Exiles but the rest were okay to average.
