This week’s book recommendation is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I read this a few years ago. I didn’t expect to like it at first, but I ended up loving it. It’s a great futuristic story about censorship–ironically it is on the Banned Books List every year. A definite classic!

 

Intrigued?

Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires …

The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning … along with the houses in which they were hidden.

Guy Montag enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames … never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.

Then he met a professor who told him of a future in which people could think … and Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do!
