What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D Books Covers, Fahrenheit 451, Books Club, Fiction Books, Science Fiction, Fahrenheit451, Favorite Books, Ray Bradburi, High Schools

This book was recommended by one of my students. It's not my typical read, but I did find it difficult to put down. Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel which presents a future American society where books are outlawed and firemen burn any house that contains them. By Elizabeth Perez.

The first book I ever read in my extracurricular reading group in school that really made me think and challenged me as a reader. I've been a Bradbury fan ever since.
Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury "Ray Bradbury’s semi-autobiographical tale of a Midwestern boy’s magical summer."
Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. Robert Frost Stay gold Ponyboy.
Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 Book -1953 - A world with no books.....still one of my favorite reads. Read this in the 3rd grade and it made me sad to think about this possible reality...let the uneducated and extreme religious/ fanatics run our education system and this could become our reality.
