A Love Affair with Books: Ray Bradbury (1920-2012) Justin Taylor Justin Taylor Blog | June 6, 2012 FB Share Tweet Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451 among other books, died yesterday. Here he explains his true love: HT: Chad Smith Comments: AStev June 8, 2012 at 12:12 PM Agreed - I loved that book. Richard June 8, 2012 at 08:31 AM Read his short story--"The Pedestrian." Wow! Lynn Rutledge June 7, 2012 at 01:29 PM Interesting video of a brilliant autodidact. I agree, the last sentence is sad! Roy June 7, 2012 at 01:22 PM A great monolog by a great writer. I will enjoy sharing this with my family. His last sentence is so sad though... "I thank the universe for ... allowing me to come alive here." He evidently believed in God but that He was unknowable (http://www.geneveith.com/2012/06/07/and-now-ray-bradbury/) "Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that he has given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun." - Eccl 9:9 Richard June 6, 2012 at 04:23 PM What a writer! "Something Wicked this Way Comes" is perfect in so many ways.
