NEW YORK, NY,
I'm pretty sure most schools have had it as required learning at some time or another.I have, in fact i just finished it. I couldn't put it down for 3 hours. It's one of my favorite books now.Did anybody else enjoy it as much? It's definitely a breather from Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter that's for sure.

I had to read this last year for english and I honestly hated it, I don't even think I finished it. For some reason I just couldn't seem to stay interested in it.

Ok didn't finish that. I didn't really understand I when I was twelve but I really want to read it again. But it's still not back in the library yet
Really interesting and very good book, that make you think about the importance of culture.
I read this for one of my modules last semester and was quite indifferent to it. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. I liked some of the imagery, but the science fiction stuff (ie. the Mechanical Dog) just put me off.

one of my favourite books in the whole world, i love and it also freaks me out how Bradbury was right in many things, it's creepy...anyway have u seen the movie? it makes great justice to the story, plus Bradbury approves, that means i approve n____noh! there is another book by Bradbury that u might enjoy: Martian Chronicles...

Love it! I was never required to read it in school, but I wish I was so my classmates would have at least read the cliffnotes :)I'm definitely a huge fan of Ray Bradbury.

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE,
It wasn't my favorite required reading book but I apprecated it and understood it for it's importance. To me reading something like Night which is a true story and by far more sinister in the way the government controlled things, I find more powerful and impactful.
I read this book as part of my Advanced Higher English dissertation work. Read it along with George Orwell's 1984 + A Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. The latter is wonderful. One of my favourite books. If you like a good dystopia (+ if you enjoyed Fahrenheit 451, I'm guessing you do) then give A Handmaid's Tale a read. Another recommendation, whilst we're on the dystopia topic, is Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. =]
