Anyone who has read the original text of Fahrenheit 451 is familiar with the central themes of censorship, governmental manipulation, blind faith, and betrayal. Anyone who hasn’t and doesn’t have time can benefit by reading Hamilton’s adaptation. In the 2009 introduction, written by Ray Bradbury himself, he challenges readers to “take the time to name the one book that he or she would most want to memorize and protect from any censors or “firemen.” And not only name the book, but give the reasons why they would wish to memorize it and why it would be a valuable asset to be recited and remembered in the future”.

Who wants to go first?
