Chandler Day 55: Fahrenheit 451

photo2This is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. It was the first book I ever read by him. I read this for the first time early last year and I fell in love with it; I’m reading it again now. I had asked my dad about the book, because I kept hearing about, and he said it was a great book. He went upstairs and gave me old copy of it. The book is at least 35 years old. I blew through the book. I couldn’t put it down. And when I went to give it back he told me to keep it. And now I’ve started devouring Bradury’s other works. He was an amazing writer and a very wise person. And there are so many passages and quotes that he wrote and that I can’t forget. Like this passage above. The movement and rythmn of it is amazing. I actually stopped reading after this passage, sat quietly for a minute and had to go back and read  it out loud because it struck me so much. There are so many things I love about this book and I hope everyone gets to read, and I hope they love it a little bit too.
