Book Review - Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury
The part of this book I found most interesting is Bradbury's prophesy that our technology would somehow replace our real relationships. The image Montag's wife, Midred, sitting in the "parlor", between 3 screen walls, talking to ...her "family" - the interactive characters on television, is haunting. I know people who have sacrificed their marriages and their family for their internet community pseudo relationships. I say this as I write on a blog that few people will read.
