Say what you want about Bradbury or about this book, you can call it high school tier if you want, but that doesn't make it any less important or any less delicious to read.
I was assigned to read it in high school but never got past the first page. Still passed the tests we were given on it from listening to class discussion. It was probably shit anyway.
I honestly remember it being pretty dumb. I read it like 5 years ago so I can't really recall much. But robot hunting dogs or some shit. Teenage dream girl. The premise itself doesn't make much sense and is overly dramatic. I couldn't stop thinking how silly the whole thing was.
The only substantial parts were the discussions between the main character and the captain on why the world needs to have the firefighters.
The commercialization of everything personified by the wife was enough to remember.
It was a good read, even if it's not anything spectacular
Shitty doesn't even began to describe it.
He tried writing 451 about the demise of literature, which I agreed to before I even read it. I disagreed with other people saying it was about censorship, even though I had never read it
Then I read it. Clearly the guy failed, because he put way too much emphasis on minorities and how not offend them. Afterall, that's how the dystopian future came to be. Plus, Bradbury always got so butthurt over criticism.
