Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury Another classical book read. Yay. This was a good one. A story about firemen burning down houses that contains books was just what I needed. It's thought provoking (and gruesom!) why they're doing it, and that helped me to keep reading.

While this book was a good classical novel, I didn't found it to be a good sci-fi novel. It wasn't exactly as much sci-fi as I was expecting, so I guess I was a bit disappointed at that. I did like it as a classical novel though, and the writing wasn't nearly as hard to read as I thought it would be.

The characters were a bit too vague for my liking. I didn't really emphatize with any of them and I kind of missed that. I know there's only so much you can do in 220 pages, but I would've liked it none the less. The beginning of the book was a bit confusing, and it took me a couple of pages to get into the story and get what it was really about.

This is a good book for people who wants to get into classical books.
