Comment: Another 7th grade read (not required)...

(See in situ)


Another 7th grade read (not required)...

I remember in 7th grade having to choose and do a book report, and I chose Fahrenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury had his own half hour show in the eighties, akin to Tales from the Darkside, Monsters, Amazing Stories, and revamped Twilight Zone, which were all shown on "Saturday Nightmares" on USA network(actually Spielburg's Amazing Stories was on NBC) , hosted by "Grandpa" of the Munsters...you know, fun stuff for kids having sleep-overs...sadly the late night horror genre is a thing a thing of the past, supplanted by TMZ and other mind-numbing "reality"... ) Anyway, would love to see a remake of "451" considering it's prophetic message of a totalitarian future that we in some ways are living today.
