Beautifully written.When it comes to dystopian fiction, I will say I still prefer 1984 by George Orwell, but this is a review for this book.

A great book from a great mind...Ray Bradbury's short stories are some of the best I have ever read. They are creepy but are a great way to look into the evolution of the classical american short story form that has revolutionised literature as we know it today. It took me a while to get around to reading it but I finally gave Farenheit 451 a shot and by the time I completed it I was glad I had done so.

WonderfulOne of the best dystopian novels of all time. As you flip through the pages, you will realise that Mr. Bradbury was prescient , and many of the gadgets he has described have come into existence in the 21st Century. Apart from the gadgets, what is really scary is that some of the situations that he has described are not very far from today's reality ....

WOWThere are dystopian novels and then there are books like this, wow! I never thought anything could better 1984 but this one did!

The Book Quality is BadWhen I say quality, I don't mean the contents of the book. The page quality and the overall build is less than satisfying. I brought Brave New World for the same price (appropriately) which was published by Vintage and it had a decent quality.

XenophobicXenophobic with utterly poor world building. This book does NOT deserve to be called a Science Fiction classic, and to do so is a grave insult to the exciting and groundbreaking genre. This is nothing but an old man whining.

Fast paced storylineRay Bradbury certainly captivates one with his wordplay. I read the book in one go. Once you start reading you just can't put it down.

Book ReviewNot really satisfied. The paper quality did not meet expectations.I think in the details even that should have been mentioned. One tends to think that there might be a few misprints as well (though there might not be one) but the feel of the paper might make somebody feel so.
