Ray Bradbury's style is better suited to short stories. His novel dragged on too much.

What is it about?

I like the sequel better, Fahrenheit 452.

Its a story about love, deception, greed, lust and unbridled enthusiasm. I won't give away the plot, but its a story about a kid named Billy who was a simple country boy.

I enjoyed it but not as much as The Martian Chronicles
>>
Something Wicked This Way Comes is Bradbury's best book BTW.
>>
To me it's one of those "ruined by an insufferable high school teacher" books

The only good part about that book was that one troubled kids mom.

The rest was absolute trash.

Do you agree that it was Billy Mumphrey's unbridled enthusiasm that led to his downfall?

Billy won the games in his small country town. The highs and lows of town folks, he dealt with aplomb, but when he got himself mixed up in the high stakes game of world diplomacy and international intrigue, his downfall began.

think for yourself

it's one of my favorite books but I don't even try to discuss it on /lit/ cuz I'm sure all the responses would be "hurrr go read REAL books like Internet Jets ;)"
