(Bradbury's notes about the book title. Click for more from The Big Read.)
NaNoWriMos...please write very flammable books. They're the only ones worth reading.
Thanks for the link. I think the Coda to Farenheit 451 was brilliant.
I love the picture of Bradbury's notes...
"Let them eat stale cake dunked in weak tea of their own ungodly manufacture."God, I love that man.Saw this twitpic posting from Neil Gaiman this afternoon, and I decided this is how you know you've made it, and are full of awesome.http://www.twitpic.com/q30my
Bradbury is a genius. I love that man and his stories. In a similar vein, I have a picture essay of Little Black Sambo in my library. It hangs prominently on a wall devoid of other books or pictures.
Alan - The whole book thrills me. I can't believe people censored a book about censorship.Cate - It's nice to know pros do some of the same weird stuff I do.Katey - Thanks for the pic. Wow. Jamie - My wife has a pseudo-censored copy of LBS where they reinvented the story to be in India. Silly.
I haven't read this book but will definitely now put it on my To Buy List. I do love Something Wicked This Way Comes though.
I don't think I can get anything I write burned for it's brutal insights on the human condition, so I'll have to rely on rampant nudity. All that friction is bound to start a fire.
I'M RIGHT! ADMIT IT OR ELSE! haha
Danielle - I loved Something Wicked. Bradbury has such a way with figurative language.Natalie - Sounds like a plan.Buck - Else what?
I probably shouldn't admit that I'm not a Bradbury fan. I think his writing is good, but I've never been able to get into it. I must have tried Something Wicked This Way Comes half a dozen times.We had to read Fahrenheit 451 in tenth grade. I hated it. Maybe it's time to try it again now that I'm a grown-up. :)
K.C. - I can understand. I don't think his schtuff is for everyone. I love his attitude about writing, though. The man is a pure writer.
