    For imagination, wonderful characters and humour – I recommend the Discworld novels!

    I read that book in HS. I decided I was all against book burning cus I sure as heck didn’t to spend my time memorizing The Great Gatsby (which would have been near the top of my list of books to burn).

    Had to read it in HS. But I re-read it 2 years ago, after 30+ years of RL, and it reverberated more in my heart and head.

    The fear was that ignorance would be enforced from the top. I guess they never figured that the people themselves would prefer ignorance.

    So true. Nothing scarier to most people than realizing how little they actually know. The less they know, the less they know they don’t know.

    As a Canadian, I was not forced to read that book.
    However, a movie I was forced to watch (and wish I could find…) was Voyage of the Mimi. Le Sigh

    Odd that so many folks say they were “forced” to read it in H.S. I was a fan of Bradbury since Junior High and had read F451 when I was 13 or 14. Read it again about a decade later.

    Agreed Larry.

    One of many things I love about Mr. Pratchett is his sympathetic, character, DEATH. I retired from a National Lab and know for certain he understood The Auditors from personal experience.

    A few years ago there was a Ray Bradbury collection that came out (I think it was one more for the Road) and the cover of the collection showed a hitch-hiking skeloten and in the background was a highway sign that said 451.
