Farenheight 451 by Ray Bradbury
Reviewed by Leila
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury wasn't one of my favorite books but it was one that was worth reading. Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature that paper books burn. This story is set in the future where a fireman's job is to burn books. The hero is a fireman who realizes that books are important and he.......... oops. You'll have to read the book to find out what happens.
The best things about Fahrenheit 451 are the whole concept of the importance of books and the fact that it is set in the future. The worst things are that it was hard to understand and it took a long time for me to read it. People who like stories that are set in different times would like this book.
Ray Bradbury has written about five hundred different types of stories, from plays to novels. He has written for Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Twilight Zone. He has coauthored the screenplay of Moby Dick and adapted stories for his own show. Bradbury is a very talented writer so I hope you read his books.Posted by at March 19, 2010 02:19 PM
