Wistful and understated, especially in comparison to Dandelion Wine and Something Wicked This Way Comes. Those two books celebrated the exuberance of youth as seen through the eyes of a young boy in fictional Green Town, Illinois. This one combined a coming of age story with the reflections of looking back over a long life near its end, which is all the more poignant when you consider it is Bradbury’s last published novel. ( )

This text revolves around Douglas Spaulding, his brother Tom and his friends raging war (rebellion) against the passing of time ruling over our lives and, therefore; clocks, adulthood, growing up, and everything which represents leaving boyhood behind. In a way, it deals with topics that are already in Dandelion such as Mrs. Bentley and the "time machines". In my own opinion, the first section, "Almost Antietam", named after the bloodiest battle in the American Civil War, fails to get in tune with Dandelion wine. It is in "Shiloh", the body of the novel, and in the closing, "Appomattox", also names of battles in the American Civil War (the main battle and the one in which Confederate General Lee surrenders to Unionist General Grant), where Bradbury manages to make of this novel a worthy sequel to Dandelion wine.

A coming-of-age story filled with Bradbury’s beautiful language, but missing some of the heart of its predecessor Dandelion Wine.

“He got up and went to the mirror to see what sadness looked like and there it was.”

“Every time you take a step, even when you don't want to... When it hurts, when it means you rub chins with death, or even if it means dying, that's good. Anything that moves ahead, wins. No chess game was ever won by the player who sat for a lifetime thinking over his next move.” ( )

This is a sequel to Dandelion Wine. In an afterword, Bradbury says that originally Dandelion Wine was longer but the material that went beyond the end of the book as printed was cut in response to his editor. He carried on working on the novel...for fifty years! Is it worth the wait? Oh yes...yes it most definitely is. Tree-men-dous. (Not bush-woman-doesn't.)
