Great book

I enjoyed this book, but the end can be slightly maddening.


I read this when I was in high school and I didn't realize how profound of a topic it covered. Bradbury has written on a subject matter that will stand the test of time. Phenomenal writing and book that should be read by all.


I was kind of iffy on this book at first, but since my friend recommended it to me I finished reading it and I'm glad I did


This book takes a while to get into, but once your reading, it's great.

A classic

A book about book-burning and universal conformity that has ironically occasionally been banned and even burned. If you loved 1984, you'll love this.
