Following from the LOLbooks thread:

Oh, check the archives, there's priceless stuff in there.

I love this one on FAHRENHEIT 451:

"Please dont read this book for the good of humanity. If you read this, you will not only fall asleep but you will also just slap yourself in the head when you are finished. The idea behind society "dumbifying" (yes I understand that isn't a word)will never happen because a plethora of people still read books and buildings will NEVER become fire proff due to their being WOOD WHICH IS FLAMMABLE in houses. So then firemen would still have their same old job. BBBBBBBBBOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRIIIIIINNNNNNNNNGGGGGG"

Cheers,
Luís

This is without a doubt why that person should be strapped down and that book read to him or her over and over again.

Tangentially related to the books reviews... Ok, maybe not, but they reference Lovecraft so I'm going to say it's related:

Check out these lyrics:
THE THING THAT SHOULD NOT LET IT BE

When I find myself in times of trouble
Hybrid children come to me
Pray for father roaming—roaming free
And in my hour of darkness
It is standing right in front of me
He is the thing that should not let it be
Let it be, let it be
Hybrid children watch the sea
He is the thing that should not let it be
Crawling chaos underground people
Living in the world agree
The wretch is fearless with insanity
And though he has been sleeping
There is still a chance that he will see
That this thing should not let it be
Not dead which eternal lie
With stranger eons death may die
These are words of wisdom—let it be
I wake up to the sound of music
Let the metal come to me
Death to the one that will not let it be

and

HEY DUDE

Hey, dude-it'z true not sad
Take a thrash song and make it better
Remembah! That metal iz in your heart
Then you can start to be a fretter

Hey, dude-don't be fuckin' 'fraid
You were made to go be a shreader
The minute you let us under your skin
Then you'll begin to be a fretter

So crank your amp and deal the pain
Hey, dude-you're fuckin' insane!
The riverz run red with blood of poseurs
And don't you know that he'z the fool
Who playz it cool
But needz for hiz beer to be much colder

Hey, dude-nevah turn it down!
You must pound her, I mean Kip Winger
New wave of British heavy metal iz in your heart
And you can start with Diamond Headerz

So let it out! Let it in!
Hey, dude, begin
Don't wait for the Eye of the Beholder
You'll never know when bellz toll for you
Hey, dude, you'll do
Just sling that flying-V 'cross your shoulder

Hey, dude-it'z true not sad
Take a thrash song and make it better
Admit it! Beatallica'z under your skin!
So now begin to be a shreader
----
I'm downloading one of the songs now. It's taking a while over my slow-assed dial-up connection.

Luis - that is terrifying. Irony as nightmare. Whoever has the rights to F451 should stick the review in as a postscript for the next reprinting:

be afraid, be VERY afraid......
