Again a book I would never have known of if not for LibraryThing. The subject matter is quite depressing as this book is about a dystopian future where books are forbidden. If you are found to own books firemen come and burn your house down. But the people don’t care, they don’t even want to read, to feel anything negative. The book follows one firemen who starts to realize what he is actually doing and starts to think for himself. Not very uplifting but despite it’s age still (depressingly) accurate. Five out of five stars.
