Review of 'One More for the Road'

One More for the Road by Ray Bradbury

I really wanted to like this one, honestly. Bradbury is one of my favourite authors but this is definitely not anywhere near “The Illustrated Man” or any of his other collections of short stories. There are sparks of brilliance in stories such as Quid Pro Quo and Tangerine but I could just not get into the others. This is Bradbury's latest collection of short stories containing 18 new stories and 7 stories never collected previously. Perhaps there is a reason. Honestly, the writing is, of course, excellent, it is just I could get into it the stories were, at best, mildly interesting but nothing more. I wish I could recommend this book to other Bradbury fans, but I cannot.
