    Farenheit 451 has been analyzed and reinterpreted by every successive generation to change its meaning This is chiefly because the book is full of assumptions and vague symbolism which can be taken many ways, and rarely does anyone come away from the book with the conclusion the author intended, which would suggest that it is a failed attempt.There are grounds to contend that even the title is inaccurate, since contemporary sources suggest paper combusts at 450 degrees Celsius, which

    I am in 6th grade My Language Arts teacher assigns us a book report tells us we can choose the book but that our grade will be based on the maturity of the novel the report is based upon.My mother and I are in K mart I ve mentioned to her about this book report to be done, and so before we leave with a basket filled with clothes I know I will be embarrassed to wear, we stop by the rack of books She selects a few pulp paperback titles, throws them into the cart.A few days later she hands me Fahr

    Somehow, I have gotten through life as an English major, book geek, and a science fiction nerd without ever having read this book I vaguely remember picking it up in high school and not getting very far with it It was an interesting premise, but far too depressing for my tastes at the time.Fast forward 15 years later I just bought a copy the other day to register at BookCrossing for their Banned Books Month release challenge The ALA celebrates Banned Books Week in September, so one BXer challenge

    There must be something in books, something we can t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house there must be something there You don t stay for nothing The burning of books is such an effective tool for controlling the population, so the message of Ray Bradbury s Fahrenheit 451 is scarily real If society s wisdom could be taken away, then so could their freedom If knowledge was burnt, then the people would be left in a complete state of utter innocent ignorance There would be no room f

    As I write this review, the year is 2012 We do not live in a perfect world in fact, in many ways we don t even live in a good world But one thing I believe with all my heart is that we live in a world which, on the whole, is better than it was fifty years ago Now, I know I m writing with limited perspective and that progression and development hasn t been the same all over the globe and even the definition of those words can change depending on what part of the world you live in But here s what I do know the averag

    We are living in a time when flowers are trying to live on flowers, instead of growing on good rain black loam 111 What outstanding prose prophetic, which is by far the most rare and inspiring of attributes a work of literature can ever possess Ray I Don t Talk Things, Sir I Talk The Meaning Of Things Bradbury is here at his absolute best I cannot decide whether this or Martian Chronicles is my favorite they are definitely my favorite of his, the best possible possibly in ANY sci fi adventure.This is The Giver for adults Here,

    Few appreciate irony as much as I do, so understand that I understand this review The message of this book is decent knowledge should not be censored However, the rest of the book is utter shit I found myself actually screaming at several points as Bradbury spent minutes and dozens of metaphors and allusions referring to one insignificant detail of the plot It is too damn flowery to be understandable by anyone In other words, an English teacher s dream In addition, the story was about the message not the story in and of itself Those

    Bradbury s Fahrenheit 451 is a novel that transcends it s dystopian theme and delivers its cautionary message in a timeless fashion, what made this story compelling in 1953 remains provocative It is a strident call to arms, a warning siren of darkness always on the perimeter.Critics have tried to make of this, and certainly it is an archetypal work, but I think its simplicity is its great strength it is fundamentally about book burning, literally and metaphorically A powerful allegory that also works well as a prima facie argument agains

    The good writers touch life often The mediocre ones run a quick hand over her The bad ones rape her and leave her for the flies That is a very unpleasant metaphor, and Fahrenheit 451 is an unpleasant book It feels like it was written by a teenager, and if I were his teacher I d give it a B and not let my daughter date the weird little kid who wrote it.Its protagonist, Montag, lacks any character he changes as Bradbury s shitty story requires him to, from the dumbest kid on the world his cousin once offered to pay him a dime to fill a sieve with
