Stories from Days Gone By – The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle

Another in my occasional series re-reading books from my childhood…

The Voyages of Doctor DolittleThe Voyages of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting

Review: I remember this book very fondly. It was one of the many Newberry award-winning books I read as a kid. Being written in 1922, some of the language is old-fashioned but I would say that it holds up exceedingly well. It is still well-written and an entertaining adventure. It’s hard for me to read the book without picturing Rex Harrison (from the 1967 film) as Dr. Dolittle but it doesn’t necessarily hinder my enjoyment of the story.

The Martian ChroniclesThe Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

Total Reading Time: 2.5 hours

Review: Ray Bradbury sure had a way with words. The Martian Chronicles is a masterful piece of storytelling. Each standalone short story weaves a piece of a larger tale. The themes and imagery have held up quite well over the years making this a timeless classic.
