Fahrenheit 451

1 Comment
I've just finished to read Fahrenheit 451, written by Ray Bradubury.
It's one of the best book I've ever read!
The novel presents a future American society where reading is outlawed and firefighters start fires to burn books, but a day something happen to one of them...

People don't burn only books, but their society too.

"There was a silly damn bird called a phoenix back before Christ, every few hundred years he built a pyre and burnt himself up.But every time he burnt himself up he sprang out of the ashes, he got himself born all over again. And it looks like we're doing the same thing, over and over, but we've got one damn thing the phoenix never had. We know the damn silly thing we just did. We know all the damn silly things we've done for a thousand years and as long as we know that and always have it around where we can see it, someday we'll stop making the goddamn funeral pyres and jumping in the middle of them."

It was an amazing book... And to think that Bradbury wrote it in one day. I swear!!! My English teacher loved his works and told us that.
