marvelous realism is a genre of narrative fiction and,broadly, art literature, painting, film, theatre, etc that, while encompassing a range of subtly different concepts, expresses a primarily realistic view of the real world while also adding or revealing magical elements It is sometimes called fabulism, in reference to the conventions of fables, myths, and allegory Magical realism , perhaps the most common term, often refers to fiction and literature in particular, with magic or the supernatural presented in an otherwise real world or mundane setting This book is the essence of Magic Realism If you are a fan of other Magic Realism books i.e McCammon s Boy s Life you should definitely check this out The setting is small town America, the main characters are your average young boys, but the things they encounter are far from normal or are they you will question what is real and what is imagination.Nostalgia, young vs old, new ideas vs the status quo are all main themes Learning from past mistakes, respecting the experience of your elders, and history repeating itself all make appearances There is no life or death just sunrises sunsets, new beginnings, strong tradition, and acceptance of your place in all of it.This book is deeply poetic and rightly so A fantastically written story that should be read by anyone that appreciates great literature I am looking forward to the sequel, Something Wicked This Way Comes Some people turn sad awfully young No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world I know, for I m one of them I re read this after a couple of decades and like most works, I appreciate it better now than then A good night sleep, or a ten minute bawl, or a pint of chocolate ice cream, or all three together, is good medicine It could be that Some people turn sad awfully young No special

work speaks on many different levels The first thing you learn in life is you re a fool The last thing you learn in life is you re the same fool Fundamental Bradbury, this work explores many of the themes that are representative of his canon coming of age, spirituality, imagination, and the importance of remaining human amidst an ever increasingly dehumanizing world of technology Sandwich
