Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradbury How plausible is the future envisioned in this novel The large screen televisions are believable - in fact technology is currently leaning towards 48 56 TVs that nearly fill up the whole wall When this book was written it seemed like an obscure possibility that TVs would ever be that big The Seashell earphones are like CD players People can be listening to them in one ear and having a somewhat normal interaction with the half of their brain thats not listening to the music In the futuristic setting people are constantly being bombarded with what seems to be a normal radio customized to use their name Moreover people listen to their seashells and watch TV at the same time They need to be constantly stimulated from more than one source to keep them constantly entertained and that way they have no time to think People in our society today multitask much much more than in the 50s People today talk on their cell phones and drive at the same time They always have access to MP3 players Discmans 24-hour television broadcasting even TVs and DVD players in their automobiles and in the plane In the 50s these appliances seemed futuristic way-out so to speak but in the 21st century we find them coming all too true The cars are capable of going about two hundred miles per hour and people are arrested for driving too slowly It seems that the people are always going so fast that they dont have time to think Theyre arrested for driving too slowly - the government doesnt want to give its people any leisure time to ponder If you showed a driver a green blur oh yes Hed say thats grass A pink blur A rose garden White blurs are houses Brown blurs are cows My uncle drove slowly on a highway once He drove forty miles an hour and they jailed him
