It's time once again for Inner Beauty Friday Bookclub! As always I am linking up with Heather from Blonde...Undercover Blonde
This week I read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury-
Here's the synopsis from Goodreads.com "Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires ...
The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning ... along with the houses in which they were hidden.
Guy Montag enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames ... never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.
Then he met a professor who told him of a future in which people could think ... and Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do!
My thoughts: I try to like "Sic Fi", and I try to read some of the classics every now and then to feed my brain. But I just don't like this kind of literature. I can see how it's thought provoking and probably was really "cool" at the time but... blah. I feel like it's so full of metaphors and symbolism and it just feels overworked to me so that I can't even get an enjoyable read out of it.
Am I the only one?
