This book should be required reading for all children past 8th grade (or younger if they can comprehend it) and for anyone who never read it in school. It is an amazing work that illustrates the consequences of taking away freedom of speech, and of the control possible by governments. At just over 150 pages, it is a very fast read. Also, look at the original publishing date. It is scary to see that the many things that Mr. Bradbury predicted over 50 years ago have almost all come to fruition today. I read this book simply because I grew up on science fiction, I had no idea it would hit so close to home.

this is a futuristic work of fiction, looking to the future to create a book about repression, suspicion, and tension. it's so wonderfully written, and the story is easily beliveable. really makes you think.
