Driving Blind Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Driving Blind

This 1997 collection is uneven and at times weak. There is less fantasy or science fiction than in many of Bradbury's earlier works; themes include meeting a familiar face in a distant place ("Remember Me?"), children's storytelling and kissing games ("House Divided"), looking up an old flame ("I Wonder What's Become of Sally?"), and the revenge of the nerd everybody picked on ("The Highest Branch on the Tree"). But the book has some terrific moments: Bradbury recalls a tiny, dusty, moth-eaten Mexican circus, tells the hilarious story of Irish drinking buddies looking for a safe place in the bogs to take a woman, and yet another tale of perfect love squandered ("Madame et Monsieur Shill"). If you're new to Bradbury, this will do nicely, but for veteran readers it's a bit of same old same old.
