Put your books into my ears!!!
I never read Fahrenheit 451 in school like most people, so this was my first time. The story was tragic, inspiring, and thought-provoking. And in a way, terrifying, like most dystopian future novels tend to be when we notice the similarities to present day society.
Tim Robbins was amazing. He shouts when he needs to, he gets excited, he gets flustered and embarrassed. So far Robbins has been the best to listen to.
This book was captivating and unnerving. Initially I was concerned that I stumbled into an adolescent novel, however once the subtext came blaring through the intense descriptions that I expect from Bradbury, I was put at ease.
Overall a captivating novel with an amazing performance by Rummel.
I read and watched To Kill A Mockingbird when I was in school, but in anticipation of Go Set A Watchman and current events, I decided that it deserved another listen.
The book is a classic with characters that you adore. Sissy Spacek is an amazing narrator, and I was completely floored by how much I loved to listen to this book.
The part of the book that really hits the moral home is the juxtaposition of national racism and the holocaust. How can one person be so against the persecution of Jewish people and turn around and persecute black people at home?
