And the voices wailed Fire, fire, run, run, like a tragic nursery rhyme, a dozen voices, high, low, like children dying in a forest, alone, alone.

Hrm. This story had ideas that could've been teased into something interesting, but contrary to, well, EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE BOOK, it went for easy, mean 1950s jokes.

In the days before cell phones. Except, of course, this part is set in 2005. But it's really the 1950s all the time in this book, and that's OK.

That's that good 50s sexism. Sigh.

Is this canonical with Farenheit 451? Or did Bradbury write two different, unconnected futures in which book burning played a big part?

That was unexpected, and an amazing short story by any metric. Could've been Flannery O'Connor with rockets. Also, I love that Bradbury doesn't even try to guess at future Earth culture. 2003 may as well be 1950, and it works best that way.

I don't know that I've ever read anything so crazy, trippy, and mindfuck-y that was written in such clear, straightforward prose.

This is actually reminding me a surprisingly large amount of Gatsby. Huh.

Aaaand I'm 99% sure this is where I left off when I read this as a kid. I didn't have much follow-through, did I?
