What more can be said of “Fahrenheit 451” that hasn’t been said already? This prophetic tale about book burning and socially enforced censorship is a remarkable aphorism.

Ray Bradbury sums it up aptly when he says, “You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”
