What would you say if I could show you a person similar to God.

It is also important to note that the novel is set around the time that the author was born; therefore, it describes the setting of the time as close as possible. John Grisham was born in 1955, in Jonesboro, Arkansas, and spent there his early years (Pringle 1-2, 65).

Ray Douglas Bradbury was the third son born to Spaulding and Esther Bradbury on August 22, 1920 in Waukegan, Illinois. As a child he was a fan of magicians, and was an insatiable reader of action and fantasy―especially those written by L. Frank Baum, Jules Verne, and Edgar Rice. He never lived up to his family 's reputation of high sea adventure. Instead, his adventures took place behind a typewriter, and around the age of twelve, he decided he would become an author. He later made the comment that he made that decision hoping to emulate his heroes and to "live forever" through his fictional works.
