I honestly almost gave up on reading this novel as it started off really bizarre to my liking. I kept rereading the same passages over and over again and it just wasn’t making any sense. The language felt weird and what was transpiring, I couldn’t grasp. I felt that this novel jumped right in on the...

Rating: 2.5 StarsPlease note, I had to read this for school. This is NOT a book I would normally read on my own time. I felt this book was rather complicated all throughout the story. The whole concept of book banning was very foreign to me. I guess I have a small mind because I have no idea why...

I liked this book for some reasons but I didn't like it for other reasons. first, i liked the messages you can interpret out of this book and everyone's interpretation will be different.For me, i felt like it was a little hard to understand at times but that could be just me. This book doesn't start...

Wow. What a great story. I put off reading this one for a long time because I assumed it was going to be too Sci-Fi for me. Man, am I dumb. I loved everything about this one. I can’t even imagine a world where books are illegal. I would get torched for sure. Bradbury has some serious writing chops. ...

This was a reread but I read it about fifteen years ago so I didn’t remember all that much. I didn’t like the dream-like quality of the prose, but I have been in a sufficiently black mood to appreciate the feelings of despair throughout. The two kind of balanced out. It does meander somewhat and...

When a book is compared to a great classic, it’s unavoidable that the reader would have high expectations. In many reviews Fahrenheit 451 is compared to George Orwell’s masterpiece 1984. Sadly, Fahrenheit 451, is not even a little brother to 1984. So, my review is in this comparison. In 1984 Geo...

Wow, just wow... This is quite the prophetic read. In a world where ignorance is indeed bliss; fast cars, inane chattering and 'the family' are all everyone needs. The threat of war is treated with such blasé disregard that no one even thinks twice about how it will affect them, because bad thin...

Even so, Montag is unhappy; there is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house? The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hy...
Philosophical Musings of a Book Nerd
This is one of those books that I have known about for quite a while but never got around to reading it until quite recently. In fact it wasn't until I was browsing a bookshop in Sydney that I came across a copy of it, and it didn't take me all that long (in fact it was instantaneous) to add this bo...
