Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury I don't understand the hype about this book. The writing is horribly disjointed and strange. It's like a stream of consciousness with no purpose. Montag is a one dimensional idiot and everyone else is worse than cardboard cutouts. WTF? I made the mistake of listening to this in the car and wanted to find the nearest cliff to drive off. Damn this was boring. Though I will admit that Part 3 had some action but Montag was still an ass. I understand the message of the book but there had to have been a better way to present it. Ray Bradbury just wasn't the way.
