Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Since I enjoy dystopian novels, but had not read this, I decided to give it a whirl. The book is definitely over 50 years old, and goes on a lot of seemingly random tangents (that still seem random thinking about them right now...). The book centers around Guy Montag, a fireman who sets books aflame. Books are feared since they breed ideas, and society has been set up in such a way that not much thought is used. I found the story odd and difficult to get in to. I don't much recommend it, such there was not much for plot or character development. Everything pretty much centered around the downfall of society and how books are not really evil things and should not be outlawed or burned.
