Think back to high school for a minute, as painful as it may be for some. Back in English class, if you're living in America, there's bound to be a handful of books that we all had to read due to them being essential books that everyone should read at one point in their life. Romeo & Juliet, Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Glass Castle, and The Great Gatsby just to name a few. All of these stories rank as being some of the most important and best selling books of all time, but Fahrenheit 451 might just be the king of them all.
As such, you've probably read it, but if not, Fahrenheit 451 is a fascinating and enjoyable read that I highly recommend everyone should check out. It's like that one scene from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band where Alice Cooper brainwashes people to sacrifice their free will for contentment and blissful ignorance, only for his plans to be thwarted by a revolution, but not as weird and it doesn't have Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees. And instead of Alice Cooper making people forget and detest music, it's books. And there's a lot of fire here. Like, enough fire to make The Fury sweat.
Sorry, I got off track a little bit. Where was I? Oh yeah, HBO's Fahrenheit 451 is boring as tar and it's a gigantic disappointment.
