One of the great things about high-profile remakes and re-imaginings of old classics is how often they’ll send curious viewers back to the source material. HBO’s series adaptation of Westworld has reinvigorated interest in Michael Crichton’s original 1973 film; Big Little Lies became a bestseller again after HBO’s miniseries adaptation; Hulu’s acclaimed The Handmaid’s Tale has boosted sales of Margaret Atwood’s book (and even the original 1990 film version).
So hopefully this month’s HBO movie adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 will bring some new readers to that classic book – and if so, boy do we have a suggestion for how to read it.
Let us know what you think.
