    Magic Realism according to Wikipedia Magical realism, magic realism, or marvelous realism is a genre of narrative fiction and, broadly, art literature, painting, film, theatre, etc that, while encompassing a range of subtly different concepts, expresses a primarily realistic view of the real world while also adding or revealing magical elements It is sometimes called fabulism, in reference to the conventions of fables, myths, and allegory Magical realism , perhaps the most common term, often refers to fiction and literature in particular, with magic or the supernatural presented in an otherwise real world or mundane setting This book is the essence of Magic Realism If you are a fan of other Magic Realism books i.e McCammon s Boy s Life you should definitely check this out The setting is small town America, the main characters are your average young boys, but the things they encounter are far from normal or are they you will question what is real and what is imagination.Nostalgia, young vs old, new ideas vs the status quo are all main themes Learning from past mistakes, respecting the experience of your elders, ...

    Some people turn sad awfully young No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world I know, for I m one of them I re read this after a couple of decades and like most works, I appreciate it better now than then A good night sleep, or a ten minute bawl, or a pint of chocolate ice cream, or all three together, is good medicine It could be that the 40 plus year old is better suited to understand the perspective of the mature writer than the 16 year old reader, or it could just be that this great work speaks on many different levels The first thing you learn in life is you re a fool The last thing you learn in life is you re the same fool Fundamental Bradbury, this work explores many of the themes that are representative of his canon coming of age, spirituality, imagination, and the importance of remaining hum...

    My introduction to the fiction of Ray Bradbury is Dandelion Wine, his much loved ode to small towns, summers and strangeness as only a twelve year old boy could discover it Published in 1957, the book is not a short story collection per se but of the twenty seven vignettes, ten had been published before Season of Disbelief and The Window appeared in Collier s in 1950, A Story About Love in McCall s in 1951, The Lawns of Summer in Nation s Business in 1952, The Swan in Cosmopolitan and The Magical Kitchen in Everywoman s Magazine in 1954, The Trolley in Good Housekeeping in 1955, etc Bradbury s ability to enrapture me is divided between his marvelous curiosities tinkerers, time travel, ghosts, witchcraft, tarot cards, Death and his prose, which is jeweled and beautifully captures the glow of a boy s summer When it comes to a strong narrative or characters I could relate to, the book left me wanting, with most of the chapters or vignettes feeling like what would fill three or four paragraphs of a book as it gears up or takes a break from its central story If there are central characters, they would be Douglas Spaulding, a twelve year old boy and his ten year old brother Tom, who experience the summer of 1928 in their hometown of Green Town, Illinois.From Summer in the Air Well, he felt sorry for boys who lived in California where they wore tennis shoes all year and never knew what it was to get winter off your feet, peel off ...

    Um.ok so I totally hated this book I hope someone out there can tell me why this is a good book It s unique, sure, but it s just a mess of words In reading the introduction, I felt like I got a sense of why that is The author said he forced himself to word dump every single morning just writing as creatively etc as he could Well, I think he just put those creative word dumps toge...

    Recently while moving bookcases, books and furniture around, I came across my copy of Dandelion Wine I had read it once, years ago, during my own personal Golden Age of Science Fiction, ages 8 to 16 Now was a good time as any to revisit this novel Bradbury had been marked, incorrectly, in my mind as a sci fi writer on the same level as Heinlein or Asimov.He s not a hard core, I, Robot type of sci fi writer, really More like a fantasy writer who touched on sci fi themes.And, he s in his own league There haven t been many authors like Bradbury, heart of a poet, imagination as great as any, and a style that is both comfortable and familiar to the reader and yet is still unique.Dandelion Wine is in my opinion the most poetical of anything I ve read by him.It s a pean to childhood joys and fears, a story of the rite of passage from young child to a aware young man The town, fictional, of Green Town is a nod to Bradbury s real home town of Waukegan, Illinois, as seen from the eyes of Douglas Spaulding, a 12 year old boy learning he is alive and mortal all in one summer.The novel is a series of...

    This book is a beloved classic dear to lots of people Thus I have to give a warning before I say anything else This time I am going to be that guy everybody hates I did not like it You may call me grumpy old man I probably read it wrong, quite possible right to left bottom to top English language edition If you love the book stop here and proceed no further Pay no attention to the incoherent ramblings of an old man This would be me by the way Usually I give a brief description of plot, at least its initial development This time I have nothing to say there is no plot This book is about a boy s summer, the summer of 1928 The guy and his brother make some small discoveries while some happenings go on around town These happenings feel like stories with no beginning and almost always no end Take the one about the Happiness Machine It felt too obvious to me and too preachy The inventor s wife came out a stereotypical nagging one The inventor himself felt retarded So no plot and no character development kids remain exactly the same no matter ...

    Sure, it s overly sentimental and largely ignores the social problems of the time depicted, but when you re 12 years old in small town America, there are no social problems There are only problems regarding the new pair of t...
