Book Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Yes, I have never read this classic before - not sure why, but better late than never. And in my biased opinion, we seem to be getting closer to fulfilling Bradbury’s dystopian future. As Bradbury says in his coda to the Del Ray Ballantine edition shown above, “There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches;” particularly people who are offended by the content of a book (just take a look and the “Banned & Challenged List”).
At this time, I would like to again thank my parents for allowing to read anything I wanted to and could get my hands on. If only all parents were so open minded.
