I was posting so much in the community, I figured I better join in and introduce myself. I am an English major at a university, and my senior high school english teacher really jelled my love of literature. I alway liked to read, but it wasn't until then that I realized how to really use literature. Now, I am majoring in English and I love my classes. I just finished reading A Streetcar Named Desire for class and rereading Fahrenheit 451 for pleasure. I am currently reading A Clockwork Orange, I hear it's very different from the movie. I also have a list of books to read soon or finish that is a mile long.

I hear Fahrenheit 451 is awesome. DO you like it?
It was an excellent book. I read it when I was younger, but I don't think I understood it back then. It really has a lot of bearing in current affairs, especially with the war and such. I've read 1984 and Brave New World, but this one seemed more relevant to me, because everything Bradbury talks about seems to be happening in our culture today. It just feels so much more possible and thus more real.
That's very interesting, I didn't even think about that. I read 1984 also, but I agree with you, it wasn't very relevant. Well thank you, I'll have to read Fahrenheit 451 now. :)
im taking a Science FIction class in which we just finished F.451... its a culture that favors the visual over the literate... decadence.. glamour... SPEED, everything is fast, rather than subtle, quiet contemplation
A Streetcar Named Desire was my favorite play in high school :)
I adore Tennessee Williams. =) and A Streetcar Named Desire is still one of my all time favorites.
