This book is a sequel to Dandelion Wine which I absolutely loved. I found Bradbury's prose and descriptions wonderful and the story made you long for simpler times. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy Farewell Summer at all. In fact, I didn't finish it. Somehow the descriptions overwhelmed me. There was a storyline somewhere amidst all the flowers but it was very unappealing to me. Maybe I should have stuck with it but there are just too many other books I want to read. After fifty pages, I gave up. Since this was part of my Catching Up Challenge, I feel good at least knowing it is no longer languishing on the shelf.
