Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury

  • Plot- or character-driven? Character

  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Fascinating read. What would happen to a world without books, without debates, without difference of opinions? Montag thought he would be happy, he was not. This is a story where you have an open ending that could take you anywhere, and it doesn't matter, because this is really all about what has happened more than what's going to happen. I really enjoyed reading and thinking about this book.
