In Paris, the weird traveler Mr. Koberman stays in a small pension nearby the Seine River owned by the grandmother of the boy Douglas.

This takes the story to its surprising conclusion. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I Actually Felt Sorry for the Guy at First
24 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Ray Bradbury must have been fascinated with the name Douglas, since he used it frequently. Here his Douglas is an American boy living temporarily in Paris. His aunt runs a boarding house. One day after helping to stuff a turkey (an event that will become significant later), a man, Mr. Koberman, comes to the door. Douglas takes an immediate dislike to him, telling him there are no rooms. His aunt, a business woman, hears this and intervenes. The man goes upstairs and Douglas begins to harass him, suspecting he is up to no good. In any other setting, he would be seen as the consummate brat. The news is filled with the deaths of young women, their blood completely drained from their bodies. A pretty young female student lives at the boarding house. She's rather set in her ways and is ignoring the obvious dangers around her. One day, Douglas, who owns some infrared binoculars, looks at Kolberman and sees a weird image on his chest (or inside it). Douglas goes into the man's room and sees a picture of Kolberman at the site of the building of the Eiffel Tower as well as a picture of the beautiful young woman (who has disappeared). Douglas eventually gets an opportunity to put his turkey stuffing skills to good use. Some pretty big plot holes but then we are talking about vampires aren't we?
