After finishing The Alchemist, I was following the signs which led me to re-reading Fahrenheit 451 again. The last (and only other time) I read this book was in 9th grade. I remember hating it because at that age I didn't understand how to get beyond the way it was written. My brain didn't work that way, and still doesn't to be honest, but now I know how to make it work for myself. Anyone who has read this book may understand what I'm talking about.
In any event, I did enjoy the story this time around and it was incredibly relatable. Ironically, I think that because we're moving towards this type of society, it was probably just as relatable back when I first read it. :-) But again, I couldn't understand wtf Ray was talking about!
