Setting: Green Town, Illinois

This is the second of three books in the Green Town series by Ray Bradbury…and a pretty darn good one. Ray Bradbury’s writing style is quite unique and sometimes very complex. I definitely have to find a nice quiet spot and fully focus to get into his stories. There were a few spots where I thought he rambled on a bit too long, and I couldn’t figure out what he was talking about. But, once he got back to the dialogue and action, the story immediately picked up again, and the pages kept turning. Bradbury did great setting up the scene and atmosphere and the feel of excitement with a circus in town. And, I have to say, it is most interesting to read the kind of evil different people can conjure up from their own minds.

Evil only has the power that we give it. (p. 204)

This line pretty much sums up the main point of the story.

A circus train, Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show, rolls into town at 3 o’clock in the morning…the witching hour. Only three people seemed to have heard it arriving. Two 14-year-old friends, Will Halloway and Jim Nightshade, and Will’s father, Charlie. They hear the calliope music playing. The boys sneak out to check it out and begin to see some odd and sinister things taking place. They learn this isn’t your everyday, normal circus. They are discovered snooping around and now see too much and are being hunted down by these evil circus characters.

This circus seemed to attract certain types of people in order to entrap them into a time-lapse on the merry-go-round, bringing them either forward in time, making them older, or back in time, making them younger. People were lured to this evil circus by their greatest fears and wants. Jim had more of a wild, curious and defiant personality and was drawn to the merry-go-round, more than Will. The merry-go-round was magical in giving you your greatest wish, but, with that wish comes also all your greatest fears: past, present and future. The boys learn that turning back time or moving forward in the future never turned out the way one thinks.

As the story moved along, they all seemed to learn more about themselves and the fears that were driving their lives. They eventually would have to come to terms with those fears or be drawn into the world of the dead and the traveling circus.

Man is in love, and loves what vanishes.
W.B. Yeats

They sleep not, except they have done mischief;
And their sleep is taken away,
  unless they cause some to fall.
For they eat the bread of wickedness,
And they drink the wine of violence.
Proverbs 4:16-17

Why love the woman who is your wife? Her nose breathes in the air of a world that I know; therefore I love that nose. Her ears hear music I might sing half the night through; therefore I love her ears. Her eyes delight in seasons of the land; and so I love those eyes. Her tongue knows quince, peach, chokeberry, mint and lime; I love to hear it speaking. Because her flesh knows heat, cold, affliction, I know fire, snow, and pain. Shared and once again shared experience. Billions of prickling textures. Cut one sense away, cut part of life away. Cut two senses; life halves itself on the instant. We love what we know, we love what we are. Common cause, common cause, of mouth, eye, ear, tongue, hand, nose, flesh, heart, and soul.
"Sometimes the man who looks happiest in town, with the biggest smile, is the one carrying the biggest load of sin. There are smiles and smiles; learn to tell the dark variety from the light. The seal-barker, laugh-shouter, half the time he's covering up. He's had his fun and he's guilty. And men do love sin. Will, oh how they love it, never doubt, in all shapes, sizes, colors, and smells. Times come when troughs, not tables, suit our appetites. Hear a man too loudly praising others and look to wonder if he didn't just get up from the sty. On the other hand, that unhappy, pale, put-upon man walking by, who looks all guilt and sin, why, often that's your good man with a capitol G, Will. For being good is a fearful occupation; men strain at it and sometimes break in two. I've known a few. You work twice as hard to be a farmer as his to be his hog. I suppose it's thinking about being good that makes the crack run up the wall one night. A man with high standards, too, the least hair falls on him sometimes wilts his spine. He can't let himself alone, won't lift himself off the hook if he falls just a breath from grace."
And, Will thought, here comes the carnival, Death like a rattle in one hand, Life like candy in the other; shake one to scare you, offer one to make your mouth water. Here comes the side show, both hands full!
