For this assignment I decided to read, The Veldt, by Ray Bradbury. And I must say that this was certainly one of the most…interesting…things that I’ve ever read. The story starts off with the parents checking on the nursery, a virtual reality room that creates images and stories based on what the child wants to see. The parents had been concerned about the nursery lately because it had only been creating one scene for a matter of months, an African Veldt. Everytime the parents went in there, there was a dark nature to what seemed to be happening. The parents, George and Lydia, had a talk with their children, Peter and Wendy, about the repetitive appearance of the African veldt. The children seemed to act suspicious about it, and this concerned the parents even more. They locked up the nursery out of fear and to help thier children not be as attached to it as they were, but this upset the children. And they had a sinister plan to get it back…

This story was a bit disturbing to me. There were clues and hints to what finally happened in the room throughout the story, but it was so disturbing when my suspicions had been confirmed. I liked the usual technology in the world but the technology of the nursery certainly convinced and frightened me. I certainly recommend this story to people, just be prepared for a dark ending…
