No matter how many times you read a Bradbury novel, it's always a gas. He's one of the few writers who can start with a big idea and turn it into a crackerjack yarn. So many authors, when they take on a profound concept, become dismal and didactic. Not Bradbury. This novel about a world in which firefighters burn books is written with passion and luminous beauty, and its anti-censorship message is sadly still fresh. — J.K.
