Look at me! This is the third Thursday in a row that I’ve released a video! And this comes after going a month without releasing a single one. What the heck has gotten into me? Ha!
Anyway, today’s video discusses Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and I really think you’re going to want to hear what I have to say about it. First, because this book was one y’all really wanted me to read when I ran my poll a little while back. Second, because giving me six minutes of your day isn’t so bad.
I don’t have anything to add here because I think I said all I wanted to say in the video. Now watch! And subscribe if you haven’t. Cause why not?
On this day in 2014 I published Knowing Your Audience.
So what happens when you set up a YouTube channel to talk about books when you haven’t read a single page since January? You put the pedal to the metal. When I uploaded my first video I’d read something like 60 pages of 1984. Now I’m finished and have a new video for y’all.
I want to say a couple of things before you watch. First, this is my first REAL video, so I anticipate that I’ll get a little better as I go along. Second, I didn’t talk about any of the terms from the book like Big Brother or thoughtcrime or doublethink or any others. So I’ll just talk about them a little bit here. I actually didn’t like them, any of them. I think Orwell was the first use Big Brother, perhaps? And obviously we all have an idea as to what it means now, but I wasn’t really in love with any of the terms that were used in the book.
I think that’s it! Now watch and tell me what you thought of this book.
PS: I’m playing around with editors and I couldn’t figure out how to edit out the very end of the video. *sad face*
