Since classes won’t resume ‘til Monday, I think its only fitting to knock off at least two books from my to-read list.
So I decided to start with the book I wanted to read for so long: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Somehow, the thought of a future where books are banned and burned got me curious and terrified at the same time. Imagine a world of mindless TV chatters without the freedom of fiction and literature. I started reading it this Wednesday and I am halfway done. My reading’s kinda slow compared to usual since I am alternating it with movie breaks. I have to maximize this free time. After all, how many times can we have a week-long suspension of class?
When I’m done with Fahrenheit 451, I am also hoping to start and finish Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. I’ve read the summary of the book and it instantly got my attention hooked. As I’ve said before, I have this thing for weird, intelligent, loner-types of protagonist. And since Christopher John Francis Boone is described as a 15-year old math genius who relates well to animals but not to human emotions, I did what I thought was right: grabbed the book and bought the copy. I am really looking forward to reading this since the main character is also a Sherlock fan (yay, me too!) and is set to investigate the death of their neighboring dog. So, wish me luck guys! :)
