I needed to read this again when I heard that Ray Bradbury had died. The story is timeless as far as I see. Great read everyone should go back to it.

Fantastic!

by lunafish on Sep 23, 2009

I absolutely adored this book! It was fascinating because Bradbury wrote it in the 1950s, yet the issues it brings up are even more relevant today. It's a little bit scary the way some of the things Bradbury criticizes were just beginning when he wrote about them, yet they have evolved as though they are moving toward his predictions. This book gave me a lot to think about. And besides the fascinating plot, Bradbury's writing style is a pleasure to read, rich with imagery. I could go on about this book forever, but I don't want to give away what happens. Read it for yourself!

Dozens of pages too long

by Teal99 on Jun 24, 2009

This book was created after Bradbury wrote a short story for a magazine. He then expanded the article to create this book. Unfortunately I feel as though it was better left as a magazine article. Bradbury goes on and on in some areas boring me to death. I did not enjoy the book except for the first couple chapters. The best character is the female in the beginning who unfortunately does not last very long!

Great writing

Ray Bradbury is a class act. I loved this book. He has own signature on Science Fiction, or better yet, futuristic material. One of my favorites in this category.

This book will take you into a future society when books are censored and people are kept happy by a means of substance lacking entertainment. People live for shows of different colors and tv shows that focus on keeping the audience comfortable and to ensure they don't think too complexly. See a man begin to question his society as a whole and then his part in it himself. Is there a way to escape the ignorance?
