Probably not one of my favorite Bradbury novels, but still full of the poetry and thoughtfulness I love so much. And there were some scenes and some lines of dialogue that hit me right in the heart.

If you haven't read Dandelion Wine, stop what you are doing and go get a copy. Dandelion Wine is a beautiful full bodied, well-aged reminiscences of the life as a young boy in the late 1920’s in small town America (but no matter who you are, you should enjoy it). Now, after you’ve read Dandelion Wine, Farewell Summer is a little less magical but still a beautiful look at the desire to hold on to youth. Ray Bradbury is true to form, quietly wise and deeply poetic and always with a touch of magic. While the story does not take the side steps to visit other characters like the first novel, it is an engaging journey none-the-less. If you are fan of the original, you should not miss this chance to visit the old haunts again which will leave with a less bittersweet flavor in the end.

Not as magical as the original story Dandelion Wine, but a satisfying sequel nonetheless from an older, wiser author.
