“There must be something in books, something we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing.”
A great example of a classic novel which has been on my to-read shelf for ages and when I finally got around to reading it, I questioned why on earth it took me so long.
It’s not a huge book, so in parts, I wish I knew more, but only because I enjoyed it so much that I was thirsty for the story. I loved particularly the emphasis that it’s not about the physical books, it’s about the knowledge and the ideas being passed down to inform future generations.
Any book lover should give Fahrenheit 451 a go. It spoke to my inner bibliophile.
