I picked this one up in an airport because I finished the book I brought with me sooner than anticipated. The choices were sparse and this one caught my attention because of the iconic Apple commercial based on this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Though accidentally reading it so close to Fahrenheit 451, it served as a complementary study on futuristic theory. The book is well written. The characters are vividly displayed. The point of the book, whatever that might be for you, is worthwhile. In my opinion, this should replace 451 as required school reading.
