Really sad to hear this. Loved Fahrenheit 451.
Thanks so much for all you've done, Mr. Bradbury. You will be sorely missed. Sad

R.I.P. Something Wicked This Way Comes is one of my favorite books of all time.

...I would have sworn he was already dead.

Anyway, sad to see him gone.

It is sad to see him go. He wrote some screenplays for the Twilight Zone if I recall.

Sad news. Not unexpected, but a blow nonetheless. Dandelion Wine was my introduction to Bradbury. Thank you, sir, for every word.

Very sad.

I loved Fahrenheit 451 and plan to read Something Wicked This Way Comes in the future. He was an excellent author.

This is really sad to hear. I like Farenheit 451 and some of his other Sci-fi novels. I am aware of his contribution to Little Nemo.

RIP Ray Bradbury!!! Crying or Very sad

I'm embarrassed to admit I've not read any of his books. I have a copy of Fahrenheit 451, so I'll amend that tonight.

I grew up watching the Halloween Tree cartoon, narrated by Bradbury himself.

I haven't read nearly as many of his books as I would like to, but I did a report on The Martian Chronicles for an English class in school, and have read many of his short stories, a modern fantasy that I enjoyed and cannot remember the name of, and, of course, Farenheit 451, which I think should be required reading! (That is a book that is desperately in need of adaptation to a movie again. The one that was done felt really stiff to me...)

It is always sad to see one of the Grand Masters leave us, but at least he left us with plenty to remember him by! I think I have some reading to do now ...

Never read any of his works, but I knew this would be impacting, RIP.
