I would like to mention the book “Fahrenheit 451” that I read this year. It is a dystopian novel which was published in 1953.

Do you know the name of the book comes from the temperature at which paper catches fire? Bradbury said it is 451 Fahrenheit that is 233 Centigrade degree. This information is the book’s tagline and it got my attention.

I do not want to give any spoiler but I would like to share general known analysis. It can be said that this book has a timeless fashion. I mean form 1953 to now, it never lost its value, moreover, it gains value day by day. The meaning, people, metaphors, poetics are never getting old. It is a cult classic. If it is needed to summarize this book with some words: censorship, books, fire, house, fireman, fear, burning, support, forest, and memorization.

This is one of the best books ever written and there is no doubt that it is an extraordinary novel. It was a pleasure to read and I highly recommend this novel.

People don’t talk about anything… No, not anything. They name a lot of cars or clothes or swimming pools mostly and say how swell! But they all say the same things and nobody says anything different from anyone else.
