really liked it
bookshelves: dystopian-fiction
Recommended for: Anyone, young adult or older
Read from June 27 to July 08, 2011 , read count: Once

What is there to say about Fahrenheit that has not already been said? It is a wonderful and bone-chilling portrayal of the spiraling demise of literature's importance in society. The truly scary aspect of the novel is its continued relevance. The points Bradbury makes are as relevant in the modern era as they were in the era when it was written.

Overall, a fascinating book and a read that I would absolutely deem necessary for any young adult.
