An excellent dystopian story
29 June 2015
I have read two dystopian works: Brave New World (Aldous Huxley) and this one (and sure have watched many-many movies on this theme).
And I must say that contrary to the popular belief on Amazon India, I find 451 to be a far superior story to BNW, and one of the most refreshing takes on totalitarianism.
The concepts in both books are fresh and awesome, but the execution and storyline of 451 is much more captivating.
A world without books, where the world is too commercialised and people are near-dumb - this is what the protagonist Guy has to wade through to make sense of his life and the world around him.
