Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury.

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

NO SPOILERS in this review.

This is a great book. And the spooky thing about it, is that you can actually see how it could happen.
It is painful to see that the premises of this book actually (and specially) apply to us today.
Stupidity seems to be in fashion. We spend countless hours in front of the TV set, engaging more in the lives of perfect strangers than in the lives of the people around us, or even our own. We look for more and more ways to numb our brains, and then we wonder why things go wrong. We might as well be burning our books.
This book should be mandatory for school. And I recommend it for anyone who likes a book that will make you think.
