Fahrenheit 451

I haven't given you guys a good novel to read in a while, so here is an old, old fave of mine, the brilliant Ray Bradbury's brilliant statement on censorship and the like.......wonderful book, very timely TODAY as well, despite being written in, I think, the 1940's........this book can really creep you out, envisioning a future where books are illegal and must be burned. Doncha worry chilluns, in Donald Trump's America, this is a perfectly logical scenario to be played out.......I may post some more dystopian novels in th
e near future as they are so "timely"......btw, DON'T watch the movie "Fahrenheit 451", it fucking sucks, sorry.......

Greatest opening line for a novel in literary history: "It was a pleasure to burn"..........

A very timely book by a brilliant writer (check also "The martian Chronicles" and "The Illustrated Man", the guy was a genius, but never could he (or anyone else) match the brilliance of "Fahrenheit 451".......welcome to your future.

This ain't no disco.
