Review: Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This Sci-Fi/Dystopian book imagines a world which is very terrifying because it's very probable one. But people like me and countless others are trying to not bring this version of future true. The future where people are lost in visual media converting entire walls to the TV covering the entire wall (reminds me of Barney's TV from HIMYM - Maybe show got the idea from this book). The most horrible thing is that the houses are fireproof so there are no fires so firemen are tasked with a new task to burn things specifically books.

Man I would be first of the people to burn with my books if something like this happened but maybe I would be like a professor or writer quietly waiting to bring the books back to the world. The most wonderful thing about the book is that despite starting at a low point and travelling towards even a bleaker point it ends with a message of positivity and hope. I loved the book and hated the version of future hated the people to turned their backs on the books and lost themselves in the giant size TV screens and the non-stop videos. Youtube on steroids anyone :P.

So yeah this was one classic which I wanted to read for longest of times and had even read the graphic novel adaptation of it but reading the original work is something else. So now after finding myself on a journey of classics and Goodreads top 100 books I am going back to Dresden Files Book 8 here I come.

So yeah it's a no-brainer pick this up if you haven't read it yet. If you have read it, read it again. and then Keep on Reading.
