"Bradbury is a hack?" Yes. A

"Bradbury is a hack?"

Yes. A Bradbury novel reminds me of something I might have written when I was twelve years old. It consists of meaningless, flowery prose. In fact, you could easily condense any of Bradbury's works to a fraction of their size, and they would flow much more naturally. Bradbury = Filler, filler, and more filler. Ugh.

I agree that Heinlein's writing can be a bit stilted at times, but at least it is direct and purposeful. Bradbury couldn't get a point across if he had a bow and arrow.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
