As Fahrenheit 451 reminded me, classics become classics for a reason. First off Bradbury's story is unique and amazing. Second of all, It is pretty unreal how relevant the story has remained 60 some years later, and it really hasn't dated at all...if anything i think it may be even more realistic now then back when Bradbury wrote it. Last, I was so surprised with Bradbury's writing. I thought it was going to be all fluff, like a modern thriller. Was I ever wrong. Bradbury writes with some of the most lush imagery ever. Beautiful descriptions kept popping up every page, and yet were still readable and not annoyingly poetic and intangible.
I was afraid of getting into Bradbury because of the way he always manages to make his way into pop-culture, but after reading Fahrenheit 451, i will now be going forth into exploring more of his works.
