Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury The more I read, the more I liked. Did you ever wonder what the hell the title means? Let me rescue you, FAHRENHEIT 451: the temperature at which book-paper catches fire and burns. Now you don't have to read the book if that was the only reason for your curiosity!

At first, I thought it was going to be another horribly boring, weird "classic" of the ilk- well, you know which ones I'm talking about...Slaughterhouse Five, Catcher in the Rye, etc. It was nonsensical quite a bit of the way through, but you could tell there was an interesting story just under the surface. If you stick with it, most of the fuzziness goes away and the moral of the story is pretty much laid open to you. I liked that.
