Book Review: Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury

February 12, 2021
Fahrenheit 451Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was quite a surprisingly good read. I had expected it may seem a bit aged now, but its parable style message about the tyranny of the present and the convenient forgetfulness of inconvenient past realities is as relevant, if not much more relevant now, than it was when it was written.

The meddling desire to interfere with our history, with our past, with our books, and even with our memories, in order to force it into line with present ideological expectations and present comfortable illusions is one of the most dangerous and insidious desires and common weaknesses that can inflict and infest human beings and human society and culture.
