Ray Bradbury died

Post by Natalie 9 » Thu Jun 07, 2012 9:48 pm

Yesterday in news on TV told, Ray Bradbury died. This is the writer on which books I grew. At the time of my youth in Russia "Fahrenheit 451" was one of those books which any person considering oneself educated shall was read. I think, in many respects thanks to him the world did not become such by what it is described in this book.

May he rest in peace!

I pray for the repose of his soul.
I have read some of his works in Japanese.

This is sad news indeed. I truly love his writing. :cry:

Ray Bradbury's tales are pure storytelling at it's finest. His stories are full of wondrous imagination, but more than anything, they are beautifully human. His writing is lyrical, and full of imagery that captivates the imagination.

Even when the setting is something fantasical or futuristic, his tales are very personal stories, which are still primarily about people.

While the obvious ones to note may be "Fahrenheit 451" and "The Martian Chronicles", there is also "The Illustrated Man", "Something Wicked This Way Comes", and so many others.

He will be missed.

SFG :(

I've read Farenheit 451 when I was a teenager - it seems a century ago now. Time goes so fast!
I was surprised to learn of his death. I had always thought he had died long ago.
