Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

I read this book once as a teenager and enjoyed it then. Surprisingly, it stood the test of time and I enjoy it as much now. I found the issues it covered to be even more relevant today.

 

For such a short book, there is an incredible amount of material to think about, discuss and analyze. While it is unlikely that books will be banned in the near future, "political correctness" and censorship is alive and well and will only get worse as media increasingly represents the interests of the corporate elite and literature is simplified and edited of anything that may be considered "offensive."
