Spoiler-ific review

Short review for a short story.

This story, written by the luminary Ray Bradbury, is the story of an old American woman who struggles with her inability to read- until for a few brief weeks she gains the ability. It reminded me a lot of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin.

As always, LeVar Burton does an excellent job of bringing this story to life with excellent narration and music and sound effects.

Stay Sunny!
