    "A book is a loaded gun in the house next door... Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man?" Stumbling upon this quote got me to read Fahrenheit 451. Everything in this book spoke to me - I was blown away. It challenged me. It made me think. Originally published in the early 50s, it is amazing that the warning or message is more relevant today that it has ever been. Truly a great book and in my top 5.

    Eerily prophetic

    Fahrenheit 451 is eerily prophetic in how society has become particularly in the states. The emphasis on not thinking or having an opinion which is valued in the novel is almost too close for comfort. The mark of a truly great author is the the ability to see and create a possibile scenario but with the hope that the scenario might neve become a reality. Bradbury has envisioned a world gone mad with education and knowledge devalued and books becoming forbidden objects. Neighbours are encouraged to snitch on other neighbours if they know that books exist in a household. After each page, I found myself constantly shaking my head in wonderment at how close society is mirroring this work of science fiction. It is a more relevant book now than ever before.

    A good book

    This book was interesting and gave me a lot to think about, though it did have some spelling issues I easily over looked them for such an amazing book.

    Anti-intellectualism

    The anti-intellectualism cycle and how people go into it on their own. A metaphor for our sad reality.

    A must read!

    I enjoyed this book when I read it many many years ago, but reading it again now, as an adult, I got even more out of it. If you have not read this book yet, I highly recommend you do. If you have, it is totally worth reading once again.
