5.0 von 5 Sternen AN AMAZING BOOK!!!!
I have just finished this book, I think it is the most fabulously written book I have ever read. I am a 17 year old high school student and read this book for my Reading class, I couldn't put the book down, I was pulled into every story. The stories in this book are so twisted and thought provoking. In the story "The Fox and the Forest", this couple...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Inever knew what was coming next.
I have never been more bewildered or sadened or even happy all in one sitting of reading this great novel. You are put on a journey to Mars and then through the mind until the only other place to go is the heart. Bradbury keeps you guessing as to what the next story could possibly be and how could it end. Unbelievable!

5.0 von 5 Sternen AN AMAZING BOOK!!!!, 23. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I have just finished this book, I think it is the most fabulously written book I have ever read. I am a 17 year old high school student and read this book for my Reading class, I couldn't put the book down, I was pulled into every story. The stories in this book are so twisted and thought provoking. In the story "The Fox and the Forest", this couple decidedthey wanted to travel back in time for a vacation in 1933 Mexico. The way the author wrote that scene was amazing, I could vividly see what he was thinking. This book definetly left me with this indescribable feeling in my stomach. I have been recommending this book to everyone I know. I am now encouraged to go out and buy more Ray Bradbury books.

4.0 von 5 Sternen interessante aufmachung von kurzgeschichten, 25. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Illustrated Man (Gebundene Ausgabe)
dieses buch ist eigentlich ein buch mit kurzgeschichten, die aber von ray bradbury auf eine eigene art in eine wietere kurzgeschichte verpackt sind. man rutscht also automatisch in die nächste kurzgeschichte, was das aufhören und buch beiseite legen sehr erschwert. ich kann das buch nur empfehlen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "Skin illustrations, the sign of an artist", 18. Juli 2005
"Eighteen illustrations, eighteen tales." "The illustrations came to life..."
A man is encountered who has skin Illustrations all over his body. Each illustration represents a tale from the future. The illustrations come to life and tell a tale of doom or impending doom. In this way ray Bradbury can tell related but different tales in this book. Its Bradbury's writing style and dialogue that holds you as much as the storyline.
At first they are intriguing and fresh. Later they don't as much repeat but are similar in form and function.
One of the best "The Veldt" is first. Of course everyone will have a different favorite.
I suggest that you make your cats leave the room if you read out loud.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic collection, 11. März 1999
This is one of those "must own" books that you always hear about, in a hundred years this and a handful of other Bradbury books will be considering classics of American literature. Basically a collection of about a guy who has all this illustrations on his body that shows the stories to an unnamed observer. Personally I have no idea why he bothered with the Illustrated Man concept, the stories stand on their own just fine, though it does give him the opportunity to give a great sucker punch ending. And the concept is basically ignored after the second story but hey when the stuff is this good who am I to complain? The stories themselves, like I said are all excellent, some more than others but it's mostly the distinction between "real good" and "really really really good". The highlights are the opening "The Veldt" which is classic Bradbury and some story about some guys on Venus who are going crazy from getting rained on and a few others. Most of his stories are science-fictional, often revolving in one way or another around rockets but Bradbury deals less with actual science and more about fantasy and dreams, leading to some real good touching moments, above all his stories are about people, they just happened to be set in the future on Mars. Some are sentimental, some are creepy, some are funny but all are good. And it's quick reading, so you have no excuse. Get it today

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dated concepts, Timeless writing, 3. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Illustrated Man (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Some people I know have had real trouble 'getting' Bradbury's work. The bulk of his best work was written in the 50's and 60's. Some concepts in this book are simply outdated. However, in every story is study of a concept that never has and never will be out-dated, The Human Condition. 'The Man', 'Kaliedascope' and 'The Long Rain' are my personal favorites. Potential readers must also understand that Bradbury is not a science fiction writer. A lot of his stories have science fiction themes and backgrounds, but Fantasy is a better way to describe his work. From hard core fantasy, such as what you will find in this book, to subtle fantasy, such as 'Dandelion Wine' you will find the most important element of Bradbury's work is EMOTION. This man is a true one of a kind Artist. I also recommend: Something Wicked this Way Comes, Dandelion Wine, The October Country, Fahrenheit 451 and any of his other earlier short story collections. Bradbury truly is a GrandMaster. PS- You Kids should keep your opinions to your self. You are only making yourselves look bad.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Illustrated Man By:Ray Bradbury, 27. März 2000
Von 
Josh Macy (Bloomington, Indiana) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
The Illustrated Man is an exciting science fovction book, filled with many short stories, one of my favorite stories in the book is the "Rocket Man," a young boy named James finds out what it's like to be an astonaunt. A boy who never gets the chanced to see his father, but James heard about his fathers conflicts with his job and his family. Another story I have enjoyed is "Kaleidiscope," this is where Applegate, a young farm boy, is looking through a kaleidiscope. He eventually finds a shipgoing down in space. You have lto pay very close attention to the book because it does get a little confusing. I would just recommend this book to serious readers and who are atleast 13 years old. This book klis filled kwith conflicts, such as "Vedle," a daycare center goes bad, bytaking the lives of young babies, find out what happens yourself. I gave this book a four and a half stars, because it was very confusing, but fun. So if you get the chance to read a good book, read this book.I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Bradbury Strikes Again!, 8. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
The book I am reviewing is The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury. Before I start summarizing the book, I have to say that this book was an ingenius idea for a collection of short stories. The book is about a man who meets the Illustrated man, a former circus freak who claims that his tattoos,covering him from shoulder to toe, were drawn by a woman who came from the future. He also claims that she said that each tattoo tells a story about the future. The man soon finds that this is true, seeing stories about space travel and the end of the world. This plot serves as a great way to tell the stories, with the man describing what he sees on the illustrated man1s back. The stories themselves are a great amount of fun to read and are very descriptive, in the Bradbury tradition.The stories are about everything from spaceships to Mars colonies. All in all, this is a great book

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really does earn all five stars, 1. April 2000
This was an extremely good one-day read. It's short, entertaining, and completely worth devoting a few aimless hours to. This was my first exposure to Bradbury, and it did not disappoint in the least. Though probably classified as sci-fi due to the overall themes and the author's writing history, this book belongs, in my opinion, in the horror genre. Not all of the stories are particularly frightening, but many of them convey such a sense of dread and terror, much appealing to the psychological aspect, that it left me a bit less prepared to sleep in a dark room that night. One in particular that stands out is 'the Veldt', in which future-modern home technology turns devastatingly bad on some of its owners' intended victims. This book is worth a look, for certain, but can be picked up in most decent used book stores for much less than the new list price.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Illustrated Man, 22. Januar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
This book is another stunning masterpiece from one of America's
greatest living writers. Even the background story of The Illustrated
Man is spellbinding. The stories herein contained are some of
the best works of this. The masterful writing contained within
the stories - The Veldt, The Exiles, Marionettes, Inc. are only
a few of the wonderful works... Bradbury weaves a tapestry
of wonder and fantasy, delving deep into the inner minds of
people. Some of the stories are warnings, some foreshadowings...
This is a wondeful book.
Also, I would like to make a revision to my previous review
of "The Martian Chronicles"-the rating should be 10 rather
than 9.
