This month’s book is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

Called “the book for our social media age” by the New York Times, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is a gripping story that is at once disturbing and poetic. Bradbury takes the materials of pulp fiction and transforms them into a visionary parable of a society gone awry, in which firemen burn books and the state suppresses learning. Fahrenheit 451 is a “masterpiece … everyone should read” (Boston Globe). “Brilliant … startling and ingenious. Mr. Bradbury’s account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating” (New York Times). Bradbury is “one of this country’s most beloved writers” (Washington Post).

 

The IH book club meets once a month to discuss a different work of literature. Discussions are wide ranging and and often demonstrate an interesting variety of interpretations and opinions. So far, we have read books by a wide variety of authors including George Orwell, John Steinbeck, Truman Capote and Graham Greene.

As well as the great enjoyment of reading and discussion, our members regularly comment on the benefit that they have noticed to their English studies. Getting into the habit of reading regularly in English helps greatly as it builds vocabularly and grammar and exposes us to a range of styles and registers.
