Book of the Week - "451* за Фаренгейтом", Рей Бредбері. We start 2016 reading year with Ray Bradbury’s internationally acclaimed novel. Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future, a multimedia age horror story of genius about firemen who are paid to set books ablaze and is more important than ever in our era of 'political correctness' and shallow consumerism. Got an unpleasant reality? Burn it! Does that hurt your self-esteem or make you uncomfortable? Burn it!
