Ruth Madison (ruthmadison) | 18 comments This is my favorite. The writing is so lyrical and full, it makes me want to quote whole pages out loud. The message is profound and continually relevant, and I find the redemption simple and beautiful. It reminds me that there is always hope, in tiny ways, even in great darkness.

I really enjoyed this book, I especially liked what Faber called three key reasons why books are so critical;
• Quality – providing knowledge and giving understanding to life’s questions.
• Leisure – provides enjoyment and entertainment
• Ability to act on what you learned from the first two

♥Xeni♥ (xeni) | 220 comments I haven't finished this book. Started reading it maybe 6 or 7 times already, but something always distracts me. I'd love to have this one as a book of the month read somewhere just so I can read it and discuss it and learn to love it like you two!

Would you like us to set it as a individual challenge for you Xeni? Everyone else reads one book, but you have to read 451

Probably Bradbury's best book, Fahrenheit 451 will stand the test of time.

Franky This one has to be one of my favorite books ever. I think I read this book at least once every few years and I find something new with each reading experience. Really is a book for our times, relates to today's world.
