Two weeks ago I posted an article on my blog (it is hardly relevant now…a rambling mess) that made some references to the film Fahrenheit 451 and just a moment ago I decided to see if it was in my Book Collector database. Twitter was open on my computer screen. And right there in front of me was a tweet about Ray Bradbury‘s death.
Crazier still, when I thought about looking for the book, I wondered whether Bradbury was still alive. I think that is strangely crazy. Is that Bradburyesque?
I have never read Fahrenheit 451. It is among the many books I buy with right-minded intentions, but don’t read. I am sure it is here somewhere. I think it is time to read it. What am I doing blogging about a movie based on the book without reading the book in the first place!
And my condolences to all the Ray Bradbury fans out there. I am sorry about the news.
