Chewing my way through classics. So, just finished reading Fahrenheit 451.
Here is my review:
Written in a language like no other, a kind of a thinking out loud, "This is what will happen if we don't change our ways," at times philosophical, at times speculative, at times a poetical meditation on burning books, this story is a vision of the future, of what could be. And though today it might be hard to perceive without cringing at the male supremacy of the 1950s, at the women characters who are dumb or pure or self-sacrificial, look beyond it. It's a love story, of a man falling in love with books.
