I Just Can't Believe It!
Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

My daughter just came home from work and asked me where our English copy of Fahrenheit 451 is. After much perusing of bookshelves, both physical and virtual, head-scratching and rummaging-in-disbelief I have come to the conclusion that WE DON'T HAVE A COPY...oh no! German copy? Yes. Kindle copy? Yes. But an actual physical copy in English of the book that got me well and truly hooked on Ray Bradbury? Nope! I am really having trouble believing this but there you have it, I'm a failure.

Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

For me, the novel is a little difficult to comprehend but with some online research it all links and makes sense. It’s a book that’s different from others and I believe that’s why is has a lot of recognition. In the future I will read this once again to understand it more thoroughly. In the future I believe I will find a different meaning. That’s what I like most about this book. No matter how many times you read it. You will find a different meaning each time and you will think about it differently.

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 out with a lot of action but as you go on there is more. Besides those things this is overall a pretty good book

Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury 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. He pens some truly beautiful prose and then mixes it up with super simple structures. I have no idea how he pulls it off. Well, I take it back. He’s a great author. That’s how he does it. No wonder this one is a classic. Way ahead of its time.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

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 I’m not sure everything works in it, but the issues that it explores are interesting: books, censorship, and the general laziness of humankind. Plus the attempts at describing the plots of Mildred’s shows were somewhat amusing (she can’t actually describe what she watches all day). I also liked how enthusiastic Bradbury’s intros were.
