Having a bookreport due the next day and this lying around in the open, I figured it was a great way to get an easy A. However, I was mistaken in thinking it'd take only an hour or so in reading. I didn't account for how bored I'd get. I'm sure it was something great back then and I'm not saying it's not great now, it just seemed rather too long. And if this book came out now, it wouldn't be as gr... read more

For a story about banning books, there's a certain perverse satisfaction that Fahrenheit 451 is now available as an e-book!

"Ironically considering the content, it has been banned for socialist ideas and profanity."

The Best Books You've Never Read (9 books items)

"If you like 1984, then this is definitly something you should read! It is about a future where firemen BURN houses with books, instead of putting out fires. Guy Montag is a fireman who didn't question his actions until he meets seventeen year-old Clarisse, who tells him about a past where people thought and read. "

"Suorastaan pelottavan ajankohtainen teos ja samalla sekä huikea ylistyslaulu taiteelle ylipäänsä et epäilemättä kovimpia ja kiehtovimpia dystopiatarinoita tähän asti."

Banned, Burned, Censored (94 books items)

"Ironically, students at the Venado Middle School in Irvine, Calif. received copies of the book with scores of words--mostly "hells" and "damns"--blacked out (the novel is about book burning and censorship). After receiving complaints from parents and being contacted by reporters, school officials said the censored copies would no longer be used (1992). "

“Having a bookreport due the next day and this lying around in the open, I figured it was a great way to get an easy A. However, I was mistaken in thinking it'd take only an hour or so in reading. I didn't account for how bored I'd get. I'm sure it was something great back then and I'm not saying it's not great now, it just seemed rather too long. And if this book came out now, it wouldn't be as groundbreaking it was back then. These days there have been better books about censorship and whatnot. Maybe I'm just more used to reading Bradbury's shorter stories and that this particular one was longer than few pages gave me quite a shock. Or maybe it wasn't a good idea to start reading it seven hours before a project is due. Whatever the case, I still find it funny that firefighters START fires” read more
