"A book that's feisty and that charges full-speed ahead, a book that practically levitates out of your hands as you turn the pages — there is that much energy in it, that much love for life and for books and for the people who make and read them."
—Julia Keller, The Chicago Tribune
"Sam Weller knows more about my life than I do."
“Weller…organized the interviews into sections such as ‘Childhood,’ ‘Hollywood,’ ‘Faith,’ ‘Politics,’ and ‘Sexuality.’ He offers an insightful introduction to each. (Another diehard fan, Black Francis of the Pixies, penned the forward). Overall, this is a book that brims over with inspiration and imagination found in the words of a 90-year-old man who’s never lost his passion.”
“The book is impressively packed with illuminating details about the rise of such an iconic writer’s career. Casual admirer or super-fan, in Listen to the Echoes Ray Bradbury’s remarkable spirit will break your heart at least once.”
“Weller is the quintessential interviewer who asks probing questions, then gets out of the way so that readers will have the feeling that Bradbury is talking to them. Bradbury comes across as honest, opinionated, passionate, and childlike. This book will please ardent Bradbury fans and those just looking into his work. Recommended.”
Praise for The Bradbury Chronicles

—The New York Times Book Review
"If The Bradbury Chronicles is exhaustive, it is never exhausting, and each anecdote adds light and color to the portrait [Weller] has painted of a writer of real accomplishment."
—The Los Angeles Times

This was one of the best books I've read this year. It convinced me the world is better off because we once had an author like Ray Bradbury.
