Summer Book List


Fahrenheit 451 is the first book of my reading list. The blurb says that it is a dystopian "post-literate future", which "stands alongside Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World and a prophetic account of Western civilization's enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity".

Kudos from The Times - "A disturbing tale that explores the maxim "Ignorance is Bliss" to its fullest; and the Sunday Telegraph - "No other writer uses language with greater originality and zest."

Looks like it is right up my street :-)
