Classic submitted by pixel gamer 3000 on August 13, 2017, 10:54am Fahrenheit 451 is a classic sci-fi novel which follows a fairly standard dystopian/utopian plotline. In a world where books are burned, and mechanical dogs can hunt people from their scent, one man must figure out what is truly right, as he realizes that the world is not as it seems.

Four and a Half Stars submitted by Avliss on July 24, 2018, 5:46pm A very interesting classic, with a message that is especially important to consider today.
