Review: Fahrenheit 451

   Posted by: Admin  in Path

Fahrenheit 451
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Somehow I made it through school without ever having had to read this book. But, I have been wanting to, so when my book club at work asked me for a recommendation – this one came to mind.

I really had no idea what to expect – except something about fire. I didn’t even know about the theme it had of book burning. SO, in some ways it was appropriate since the book club recently read The Book Thief.

Anyway, I thought it was an interesting book. It was complex like most older literature, so it took me longer to get through than I’d like. However, I did also take the time to read all the Appendix content of reviews and analyses of the book and its impact on the culture of the time. All very interesting.

I don’t know that it is my favorite book ever. Nor did it have a major impact on me. But, I’ve read lots of dystopian lit and I already believe that reading is important.

I did think his “future” was eerily accurate with the large screen TVs, immersive programming, and people who have headphones in ALL THE TIME!
