Fahrenheit 451★★★☆☆

Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

Audiobook, Overdrive version. This is a book full of interesting ideas but sadly lacking in worldbuilding, believable characters, or logic. The plot holes are big enough to drive a firetruck through. I enjoyed Stephen Hoye's narrative stylings. The Shatner-worthy melodrama seemed to suit the prose well, with the constant exclamations of "God!", "My God!", and "Oh God!".
