One of the more famous books out there, probably one that you had to read in school. It's really pretty sophisticated and thought-provoking. Can act as a metaphor for today's media-oriented world. Bradbury uses sentence structure to almost perfection, which doesn't necessarily mean gramatically correct sentences.
What do you guys think about this book?
I thought it was very good. Haven't read it in a while, but I remember enjoying it quite a bit. May have to re-read it now.
I remember reading it for school and actually enjoying it. Its been a while, but I do remember I liked it.

I can't normally read books more than once, and on the rare occasion where I have to, I normally have to slog through a second time. But with Farenheit 451, there's so much subtlety and detail that I can actually reread it over and over.

Never read it, but it appears it is something I would enjoy.
Will be ordering it soon enough.

:noidea: But I've watched the movie 2 or 3 times and liked it.
Does the movie do the book justice?? If not, I might have to read it.
I read it a year or two ago and though I recall it being very good at the time I read it, there's nothing that stands out in my memory about it now. Perhaps I should re-read.
