    "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.

    One of the Best

    This is now one of my favourite books of all time, even though the story was written years ago it still feels fresh and touches on some of the biggest dilemmas that still face humanity today.

    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.

    Essential reading for everyone

    This made me want to hug every one of my books to my chest and never let go. Masterfully written and even more relevant in an era of constant connectedness and media (over)load.
