When you read a book in one sitting that has to imply something. For me it said it was just too captivating to put down. More than that it was scary how accurate something written 50 years ago, looking into the future, can be. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury wasn’t what I was expecting. I’m not sure what I was looking for but I’m glad I was taken by surprise and drawn into this novel. Maybe it was the piercing imagery that left my brain full of stunning pictures or the horror of a society that burns books and sits glued in front of a television that has become their “family”. It might possibly have been the sheer beauty of certainly worded passages and the suspense that left me prying my tired eyes open till 2 am. Yet maybe what caught my attention are the questions posed that left me to ponder. This is a book I need to buy for myself and reread. You can be sure that it’s quite quotable. It will make you stop and think and that’s something that in our society is a precious commodity. We do everything we can to avoid this and yet maybe that’s just what we need to do is stop and consider why we’re doing what we are doing. It’s time to read voraciously folks. So what’s on your book list? Might I suggest you start with Fahrenheit 451?
