    One thought on “The Golden Apples of the Sun”

    1. Golden Apples of the Sun by Ray Bradbury is a collection of short stories first published in 1953 with 22 short stories Published again in 1997, this later edition contains the original stories as well as 10 previously released stories by the Grand Master These stories serve as a representative sample of Bradbury s unique and far ranging talent, blending elements of several genres into a cohesive universe of speculative fiction, as well as a demonstration of his mastery of the short fiction veh [...]

    2. Goodbye Ray Bradbury He was the first author I loved, he was a natural for me with his heart on his sleeve and his absolute belief in the power of words and the religion of wonder His brilliant restless short stories set off puffballs of astonishment in my brain, I slept on Mars and woke up in Green Town, I grew giant mushrooms for fun and profit and I was the illuminated boy, Ray Bradbury illuminated me with death, calliopes, mechanical houses, ice cream suits, towns where no one got off, dwarv [...]

    3. How does one review a book of tiny short stories Do I describe the stories individually Or do I just mention a couple favorites, like the one about the last dinosaur and the lighthouse, or the pedestrian, or The Sound of Thunder, the time travel story that everyone knows even if they don t know the name of I m one of the few people that didn t have to read Fahrenheit 451 in school so the only exposure I had to Ray Bradbury before this was issues of Tales from the Crypt where they adapted his sto [...]

    4. Muy buena recopilaci n de cuentos sobre temas variados Mis recomendados son El peat n , La fruta en el fondo del taz n , El asesino , El mundo all lejos y La f brica Bradbury siempre recomendado

    5. Loved it Bradbury got the title from last line of this poem THE SONG OF WANDERING AENGUSby W.B Yeats WENT out to the hazel wood,Because a fire was in my head,And cut and peeled a hazel wand,And hooked a berry to a thread And when white moths were on the wing,And moth like stars were flickering out,I dropped the berry in a streamAnd caught a little silver trout When I had laid it on the floorI went to blow the fire a flame,But something rustled on the floor,And some one called me by my name It ha [...]

    6. Hay cuentos muy buenos en esta colecci n, otros no tanto.Mi favoritos son el primero y el ltimo La sirena y Las doradas manzanas del sol Ambos, por s solos, merecer an un 5 rotundo Est n muy bien construidos, y son de una belleza l rica que da gusto leerla y regodearse en ella.Menci n especial para El basurero, pienso que se merece un 4.5, quiz s un poco m s.Otros que me parecieron buenos, a los que les pondr a un 4 El asesino, El ruido de un trueno y El prado.El resto de las historias no me cau [...]

    7. Bradbury on the sea One day many years ago a man walked along and stood in the sound of the ocean on a cold sunless shore and said We need a voice to call across the water, to warn ships I ll make one I ll make a voice that is like an empty bed beside you all night long, and like an empty house when you open the door, and like the trees in autumn with no leaves A sound like the birds flying south, crying, and a sound like November wind and the sea on the hard, cold shore I ll make a sound that s [...]

    8. Cuando uno recuerda toda una vida, parece que recordase m s las caras que las manos y lo que ellas hicieron Siempre me da terror hablar de cl sicos, siento que voy a decir cualquier cosa, que mis palabras se quedan cortas para describir al libro Por eso me cuesta escribir esta rese a Las doradas manzanas del sol son veintid s cuentos, algunos cortos y otros bastantes largos No disfrut de todas las historias, algunas me encantaron como El asesino o La fruta del fondo del taz n y otras me disgusta [...]

    9. The Golden Apples of the Sun is a collection of Ray Bradbury s short stories, first published in hardback and then republished for mass consumption in a lovely series of paperbacks distributed by Bantam Books in the early 1970 s There were a number of these collections floating around, and I have many, many fond memories of these Bantam editions For starters, they had catchy cover art that captured my imagination as a young reader The paperbacks also kept the beautiful story header line drawings [...]

    10. Not all of the stories in this collection of Bradbury s short fiction are great, or even that memorable, but one or two of them will stick with me I particularly enjoyed Embroidery , which was well structured and had a lovely final paragraph Perfect, even, almost.Even if a few of them didn t really get to me, it s worth noting that I received it in the mail just today, and I read it in two sittings I ve been rather wrapped up in video games lately hey, I just got the news that I got a first for [...]

    11. One of the nice things about working in a school is that I can nick books from the English cupboard, bring them home for a day, or a week, or most of the year, and quietly return them without anyone complaining It s a perk that almost makes those times you accidentally stand under the bell worth it Anyway, earlier this year I was reaching for short stories to show my sixth form students, and it occurred to me that A Sound of Thunder is a damn fine short story, both in a technical and a literary [...]

    12. 22 enjoyable stories in Bradbury s wistful and nostalgic style some science fiction, some fantasy, some just plain fiction The most famous is probably A Sound of Thunder, in which a hunter travels back time to shoot dinosaur and makes a critical error I especially got a kick out of The Murderer, which is about a man who has declared war on nuisance technology I often feel like doing that myself This story was written sixty years ago I wonder how the character would have reacted to twits and twee [...]

    13. S lo me ha gustado el relato que da nombre al libro, el resto yo he paseado por encima de las palabras mis ojos, pero no me han trasmitido nada NOTA MENTAL Empezar a plantearme si de verdad me gustan los libros de relatos.

    15. Half of these short stories are fantasy, and half are the kind I love about outer space, post or pre apocalyptic life, and Mars.My favorites The Wilderness Two women ready for a move to mars, one makes a very long distant phone call and receives the encouragement she needs to take that step.The Murderer In the 1950 s, Bradbury predicted the state we are in today instant communication, too much communication brought about by technology that never shuts up There sat all the tired commuterswith the [...]

    16. Warning The following review contains public display of shameless fangirleryThese collected short stories confirmed something I have long suspected Ray Bradbury is a living breathing writing celestial entity and to me R will always be for Rocket The Murderer , which was published in 1953, uncannily portrays the impact of information overload before there was Facebook or even the internet Really spooky stuff My favorite stories are The Great Wide World Over There and the absolutely mind blowing F [...]

    17. I enjoyed most of the stories in this book, particularly The Murderer, which I found to be so appropriate to life today This is one of few stories that hasn t got an initial publication date noted, but I guess it would be early 1950 Even though the technology that drives the main character to murder is not exactly as Bradbury imagined it would be, it is close enough to make me go Wow Sun and Shadow, which made me feel guilty about the times I ve found life that is on the verge of abject poverty [...]

    18. Bell sima recopilaci n de cuentos de f cil lectura que van desde las risas y la ternura hasta el llanto y la angustia Este libro me acompa en una hermosa tarde de sol con mis padres en el bosque, y si bien yo no estaba muy feliz, Bradbury como siempre me dio una alegr a enorme y me coloc a la belleza m s pura a mi alcance con sus narraciones.

    19. While I know Ray Bradbury is a great science fiction writer, before I read this book I only knew of Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles, both of which I ve read In this collection of short stories, Bradbury shows he s not just a writer of sci fi, but of other genres and ideas as well That being said, his strength certainly lies in science fiction, even if these stories are a bit dated from their original, 1950 s publications Either way, most of the stories contained in this collection were [...]

    20. The Golden Apples of the Sun showcases the broad range of Bradbury s literary ability While some might argue that topical breadth is a rather commonplace characteristic of books of this format, I contend that it goes beyond the typical collection of short stories Bradbury is a stylistic chameleon utterly transformative yet wonderfully convincing in the span of only a few pages These stories range from mundane The Great Wide World Over There to utterly fantastical A Sound of Thunder Imaginative a [...]

    21. I m somewhat disgusted with myself for having only given this book 3 stars.Ray Bradbury wasn t just a brilliant writer of Speculative Fiction he was a great writer, full stop I ve always found a certain calming quality in Bradbury s style quiet and considered, yet utterly deliberate always encouraging you to think beyond the limits of the words printed on the page.Reading Bradbury always makes me feel like I m six years old again, sat cross legged on the floor while my grandfather reads me a sto [...]

    22. I was, of course, familiar with Ray Bradbury s most known work Fahrenheit 451 and appreciated him for his contribution to sci fi, but then I read this collection of short stories and was blown way.The title comes from a line of Yeats And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.For that I have to thank Bradbury doubly, once for writing such a wonderful collection of short stories, and again for introducing me to Yeats, a poet whom I unexcusa [...]

    23. I once said that Bradbury was trash, but exquisite trash Like the pizza boxes and soda cans of the gods Is it okay to quote one s self I m okay with it I stand by the statement He s good not great, although I think back to Something Wicked This Way Comes and some of the stories in The Illustrated Man and I want to argue with myself He s got a great, flexible sort of an imagination, which is kind of humanist and romantic and childish all at once That being said, this collection isn t his best I d [...]

    24. Para un servidor, los relatos de Ray Bradbury est n a a os luz de sus novelas A pesar de ello, en Las doradas manzanas del sol aparecen tres textos con un contenido altamente atractivo Esta recopilaci n de cuentos se abre con La sirena , seg n muchos cr ticos el mejor relato del autor Y no es para menos El ambiente opresivo te atrapa desde las primera l neas, teniendo como escenario un viejo faro cuya sirena atrae a una extra a criatura de las profundidades marinas.En orden de importancia, qued [...]

    25. The general consensus seems to be that Bradbury was at his best with three works the novel Fahrenheit 451, and the short story collections The Martian Chronicles, and The Invisible Man I am fully in line with the consensus Being so prolific, it s not surprising that not all of his work can measure up to the standards of his best stuff The Golden Apples of the Sun is an example of the hit or miss nature of some of his stories I m giving this four stars based on the high quality of three stories i [...]

    26. Thoroughly enjoyable read I ve only read Martian Chronicles previously, and I love the way Bradbury s descriptions and cadence really flow naturally That s one of the things Stephen King does so well also All but maybe a couple of these stories are solid little tales The quality is just so much higher than something like a Richard Matheson collection, which executes interesting ideas in a flat and tiresome manner It also helps that this collection starts off with a very Lovecraftian story titled [...]

    27. Sometimes you come across a book that remains on your mind for months, or even longer, after reading I think this is one of those books.The Golden Apples of the Sun is a collection of 22 short stories, each exploring a different idea Although a couple of the ideas have been covered quite a lot in literature or films the butterfly effect, for example , Bradbury s work I would suggest is amongst the best I read this book through in one sitting because I was on the train, but I almost feel like I d [...]
