The Lady in Pink eS no conflict or hardship or anythinglse to spark thinking innovation and progress I saw parallels in the thinking process between HG Wells and Ray Bradbury the
recognition that athat Utopian Eyes environment would ultimately lead to the downfall of mankind as it would strip away our survival skills and instincts and we would not be able to cope with the resurgence of conflict andvil which is always bound to reappear in life Perfection can only ver be a thin veneer over the underlying issues inherent in societies and human interaction which ach otherThis is an Sinner's Heart exceptional book and an inspired story Many years have past since I last read this book in high school two fifths of a century Back then I think Injoyed the book as a book about burning books which at the time I was all about as I was tired of school and ready to graduateNow as an adult I come away from Fahrenheit 451 with an appreciation for the book on two counts The first is the cautionary tale of succumbing to the almighty groupthink the same one that seems to permeate our society irregardless of political or religious bent working its way into the fabric of our lives one blink of an unblinking ye at a time The second is just how much I love reading Bradbury s prose The way he writes almost invites one to take pause and re read certain passages again to savor the meaning and craftsmanship of a true verbal artistIf you are on a kick for reading those classic books from your school days or are a young perso Fahrenheit 451 is a book I would probably have said I d read if you d asked me I could probably have told you the basic premise a dystopian land where books are banned and Firemen don t put out fires any I might well have read it and rather counter to the spirit of the book then pretty much forgotten it And that s kind of sad because this book is one that most readers know about a book that challenges the things we love and yet it s also not really all that great I hate to say it but it s a little bit forgettableIt s a short novel and a uick read and it lights the flicker of a flame of thinking about the power of books but it s all just so rushed so fast to develop and accelerate that a lot of the opportunities to xplore deeper are missed Montag the fireman one of the lite who set fire to books burn people

Fahrenheit 451 1984 these books should "STILL BE REUIRED READING FOR EVERYONE "be reuired reading for veryone Bradbury does the same in this book as Orwell does in 1984 showing you an all too possible and all too close future of socialism and a society of forced ignorance These books are not listed in horror but they should be 451 shows how a society can be undone by just a few carefully planned laws that look good at first He also shows that humanity will not be completely undone with just a little bit of light in the dark There are always those who fight Read these books yourself No review will Math Basics 6 ever give justice to this book I read the first four or five pages four or five times Once I got myself into dystopian mode then I was flying Frankly this book blew me away Published in 1953 the future Bradbury imagined has well and truly arrived I m not talking about robo dog and book burning in a literal sense but the mind numbingffect of social media the Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, empty diet of visual pap and meaningless tripe so many of us callntertainment So many scenes in this book stand out slap you hard in the face for being willfully ignorant about important issues for being politically apathetic Let s hope that we will be spared the cataclysmic The First Ghost ending Bradburynvisioned The writing is fficient rather than lyrical but the intellectual content is astounding Would recommend This short novel was adapted from five short stories by the author and to be honest it shows The characters are not well developed there are no sub plots and the progression of the story was predictable The only interesting and likeable character Clarisse unexplainably disappears a third of the way into the novel and is never seen again the author admits in the introduction that he should have given Clarisse a proper nding As a book lover I did Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential enjoy the musings on the nature and value of books and theirffects on society both good and bad but it did still feel like of a short story or ven an ssay than a complete novel Rather than making me think I felt like the whole book debate and all its arguments were just handed to the reader on a plate Funnily Humanism enough I actuallynjoyed the final 20% of the book the most when it became the story of an outcast running from the law in a post apocalyptic world that was the only point at which I felt any tension because the Smokin' Hot ending was the only part that wasn t predictable and I didn t know whether Guy would be captured or not I wish the novel had beenxtended to show what happened after the city is bombed and how the men slowly re introduce literacy because that was the part I felt most intrigued about I m glad I read it because it s a classic but it s a strange book and the structure and pacing didn t work for a novel The Kindle dition does not consist of text Rather consists of images of ach page There is only a white background the text cannot change size If this is a problem for you you ll want to find a different book format It is Bradbury classic I admire how Bradbury was able to predict current socienty and technology development Devices used by characters in books like a shell radio or TV wall which is ven interactive are very similar to devices we have now Moreover behavior of the people in the book is very close to actual ones as well it means that there is only one approach to life and verybody who does not follow it is considered to be bad

He patches of the universe together into one garment for us Cover Summary In an unknown year far into the future or at least from the date this novel was written Guy Montag is a fireman Except not the kind of fireman we all know Instead of putting out fires firemen in this time start the fires burning books which are completely banned from society Guy loves his job and feels that Burning books is While My Soldier Serves exactly the right thing to do until he meets a young woman name Clarisse who starts to give him ideas about whatlse there might be in the world changes his thinking and makes him consider the uestion why What this results in is a turn of vents for Guy he begins to doubt his wife s parlour family who live inside the virtual reality walls of his living room Makes him doubt that books are really bad and that is normal for war to break out and be over in a matter of hours Why is the world like this And is there anything Guy can do to change it Put it right Review The risk with reading dystopia which was written 7 decades ago is that it won t have stood the test of time This is not the case with Fahrenheit 451 Instead this novel continues to teach valuable lessons not least the importance of books and reading But also friendship relationships and to be honest it s scary how accurate Bradbury was in his predictions of technology and VR taking over real connections and relationships Thought provoking and in parts terrifying a perfect read for any fan of dystopia I listened to the audio book of Fahrenheit 451 narrated by Tim Robbins The narration was xcellent and Tim Robbins certainly made the most of Ray Bradbury s very vigorous and to the point style of writing in certain parts of the book to such an ಪರಿಸರದ ಕತೆ Parisarada Kathe extent that I felt as if I was running with Guy Montag andxperiencing his fear pounding heart and uncertaintyThis is one of the most uniue dystopian novels I have read and is right up there with HG Wells with its incredible philosophical insight into human society what makes us tick individually and as a group and how it could all go incredibly wrong if mankind as a group makes incorrect choices along the pathway leading into the future What makes this book incredibly scary is how horribly possible it all is and how awful the black cloud of illiteracy and ignorance is and how it limits people s choices and abilities to progress and grow All this being said however this book does The Fiend Next Door end on an optimistic and hopeful note which is invigorating and upliftingspecially given the momentous issues that are currently staring mankind in the face like climate crisis and the fourth industrial revolutionGuy Montag is a fireman whose job involves the destruction of books and the belongings and homes of people who go against the law of the nation and keep and read books The reader is introduced to Guy in a happy state of njoyment over his current burning and you get the impression that he is happy and fulfilled in his life and his workComing out of the train station at the nd of his work shift Guy meets Clarice an unusual young woman who is a thinker The reader uickly realises that she is incredibly uniue in
