Short Story #38. The Veldt (Ray Bradbury)

Deal Me In Reading Challenge: I drew the nine of hearts.

Story: The Veldt, by Ray Bradbury (available online here)

Comments: A masterly story from a master story-teller.  It’s hard to believe it was written over 50 years ago, in 1950.  It’s about the role of technology, supposed to make our life easier and smoother, being used for evil in the wrong hands.  And those hands are not found in some totalitarian state, but in our own offspring, who use the technology against us… A wonderful read.
