Fahrenheit 451

Just completed reading Fahrenheit 451.  I could not help,  but to link it up with my owns book progress.  Ray Bradburys book is about a world where,  no books are allowed.  The fire departments only function in this future novel is to destroy the books and home of anyone guilty of hiding them in their confines.  Ray Bradbury has a poignant, strong descriptive talent in pushing his story line through the pages of his novel.

The main Character is Montag,  who through meeting a young girl named Clarisse,  seems to change his concrete outlook on life.  He works for the fire department,  with its salamander and robotic hound,  whose prey it never loses track of.  Never.  As so it appears.  I give it 4 out of 5 stars.  I read a Halloween book in my teenage years,  which always gave me the wonderful feeling of Halloween by Mr. Bradbury.  I forget the title,  but will look for it now...  Love his writing.

Yet,  I find it interesting how it ties in to my books development so far.  I personally feel hauled into Ray Bradburys Fahrenheit 451.  How,  here at home,  it sells very well.  But,  go outside my own boundary,  the my book does not hardly sell at all.  It is buried among the other million or more published books out there.  Just too many books,  too little audience for it to be picked up...  Till then...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
