Fahrenheit 451

In Fahrenheit 451 (which is set in the not-too-distant future), books are deemed dangerous enough that there are firemen whose sole job (now that everything else is made to be fireproof) is to burn books. As Geekend contributor Edmond Woychowsky wrote, "I feel that it's ironic and somewhat recursive to ban a book about banning books."
