"The finest American fantasist, Ray Bradbury, has produced another wonderful story ... superbly imagined ... a terrifying yet hopeful plot."
— Gilbert Highet, Harper's Magazine

"His longest sustained work, savage and shockingly prophetic ... filled with intimations of a time to come."
Washington, D.C. Times Herald

"Frightening in its implications ... Mr. Bradbury's account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating."
— Orville Prescott, New York Times
