Kurzbeschreibung

26. September 2006 A Leo Waterman mystery
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 classic SOMETHING 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.

Mehr über den Autor

Ray Bradbury gehört zu den großen Science-Fiction-Autoren Amerikas. Geboren 1920 in Waukegan, Illinois, begann Bradbury unmittelbar nach der Highschool mit dem Schreiben fantastischer Geschichten. Seinen Lebensunterhalt verdiente er sich anfangs noch als Zeitungsverkäufer, bald aber konnte er seine Erzählungen in diversen Zeitschriften veröffentlichen. 1953 wurde Bradbury mit seinem Roman "Fahrenheit 451" schlagartig weltberühmt, nicht zuletzt auch dank der Verfilmung durch François Truffaut. Mehr als 600 Geschichten und über 30 Bücher hat der Vater von vier Töchtern seither publiziert. Aber auch außerhalb der Literatur ist Bradbury immer wieder gefragt: U. a. engagierte er sich als Experte für das Fantastische bei Disneyland Paris. Heute lebt Bradbury in Los Angeles.

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

A masterpiece of modern Gothic literature, Something Wicked This Way Comes is the memorable story of two boys, James Nightshade and William Halloway, and the evil that grips their small Midwestern town with the arrival of a "dark carnival" one Autumn midnight. How these two innocents, both age 13, save the souls of the town (as well as their own), makes for compelling reading on timeless themes. What would you do if your secret wishes could be granted by the mysterious ringmaster Mr. Dark? Bradbury excels in revealing the dark side that exists in us all, teaching us ultimately to celebrate the shadows rather than fear them. In many ways, this is a companion piece to his joyful, nostalgia-drenched Dandelion Wine, in which Bradbury presented us with one perfect summer as seen through the eyes of a 12-year-old. In Something Wicked This Way Comes, he deftly explores the fearsome delights of one perfectly terrifying, unforgettable autumn. --Stanley Wiater -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect 23. März 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Bradbury has always been a better short story writer than a novelist but occassionally he comes along with something that makes you wonder why he doesn't write more novels. However most of his best novels read like longer short stories and this one is no exception. Not that I'm complaining, mind you, because this one is so good you don't notice how short it is and really don't even care. His classic seems engrained on our collective conscious and most people probably think the phrase "Something wicked this way comes" comes from the title of this book and not from the Shakespeare play (Macbeth?). The one thing I notice that's different about his writing is that it's far more lyrical than normal, he seems to have a better command of the English language and every sentence and paragraphp seems dense with imagery and metaphors. The story itself ain't too bad either, the tale of a carnival that has come to take the souls of the unsuspecting town, and only two boys and a father who doubts himself can stop them. Mr Dark is one of the best villians ever to grace a novel and he exudes menace and pure evil all at the same time. The entire novel feels like a child's dream turned into nightmare and Bradbury's trademark nostalgia is still there, though less prominent than usual. Everything is beautifully constructed and you'll want to savor the writing over and over. Everyone who thought he had left horror should read this, even though it's not in the same vein as say The October Country it's close enough and just as enjoyable.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fantastic piece of work 3. Mai 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have to start by saying that I am an avid reader, but it usually takes me about a week to read a novel. On rare occasions, though, a book hooks me so thoroughly that I drop everything and read it constantly. This is what happened with Something Wicked... I am not one for heavy, thick, flowering language in my fiction, but I tolerate it fully with Bradbury. He never just says plain in simple terms what something is or what something is doing. He uses metaphors constantly and they work so well. Yeah, I know that's what good writing should be, but I've read lots of books that use lots of metaphors and it just doesn't work for me. I choke on it and can't see it and can't keep up with it. Bradbury does it masterfully in my opinion. As for the story, it is creepy and it is scary and it is wonderful! No, it won't freak you out or give you nightmares, but it will give you a chill if you let it. Let yourself visualize the characters and hear the calliope and you will be immersed and I bet you'll love it!

3.0 von 5 Sternen BRADBURY WROTE THE MOVIE TOO, YOU KNOW & IT'S BETTER 8. Oktober 1999
Von A Writer
Format:Taschenbuch
I love this novel -- its whole is truly greater than its parts -- but some of it's seriously flawed. (I even heard Bradbury himself complain about it.) You get the feeling that Bradbury's a true believer of artistic inspiration, of a kind of unrestrained, no-metaphors-barred kind of poetics; but that he's not too keen on rewriting. He re-wrote this novel, in a sense, when he wrote the screenplay for the movie. It is the movie version, not the novel, in which Bradbury entirely overhauls the story and really polishes things up, i.e. fully fleshes out the characters, gives the plot a kind of emotional complexity and horror that never really exists in the novel, and really focuses in on the book's major theme -- the loss of youth and the acceptance of old age and death. Next to the novel, the movie shines and cuts like a razor. (Bradbury, incidentally, also wrote the screenplay for Moby Dick.) I love Bradbury, he's one of America's greatest national resources, and his works have even influenced such writers as García Márquez. But like I said, it's Bradbury's movie, which he wrote himself, that's the real masterpiece. If anyone doesn't agree with me or doesn't understand, then I would urge him to watch his cinematic adaptation. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An unforgettable fable of good vs. evil 2. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This story is one that I have thought of often in the 15-plus years since I first read it. It is a tale of moral dilemma and tests of loyalty. There is enough of the macabre to keep the reader tightly gripped, yet enough moral fiber to keep the reader thinking for years to come... and isn't that the true test of great literature?

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best American novels ever written! 19. März 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Without doubt, this is one of the best American novels ever written! In this poetic-prose masterpiece, two boys, Jim Nightshade (the dark one--hence the name) and William Halloway (the light one--i.e. Hallow=Holy or Halo) encounter an evil carnival inhabiting their small mid-western town (Waukegan, Illinois). Mr. Dark and his prized possessions--the freaks--succeed in luring and deceiving the townfolk into succumbing to their desires and fantasies, thus fueling and giving life to the evil carnival. Beware of the Autumn People! They feed on the lonely, desperate, and weak-hearted. Along with William's father, the two boys try and defeat the approaching evil and in the process they learn more about themselves and their growing and misunderstanding relationships with each other. This novel not only has a great plot and very interesting and in-depth characters, but it is SOOOOOOOOOOOO well written. Also, from the reading, we learn about Bradbury's philosophy on life--ACCEPTANCE! This book should be considered a classic and every middle school and/or high school should make it a mandatory read. Although it has received great reviews, this novel is still very underrated. In my opinion, Something Wicked This Way Comes is far better than Bradbury's more popular-- Fahrenheit 451. Hollywood--NOT DISNEY--should make a major motion movie about this masterpiece. This book--along with The Martian Chronicles, Dandelion Wine, and Death Is A Lonely Business--are definite must reads. One day, I predict Something Wicked This Way Comes will become an American classic. BEWARE OF THE AUTUMN PEOPLE! Who knows, we could be next.
