A novel about the centrality of storytelling to the human experience, Engine Summer also boasts the tightest fit between a book's title and its contents that I have ever encountered. Bradbury says that the overall thrust of Fahrenheit 451 was based on a fear of television and how it would eventually disconnect people from reading and it is noteworthy that it is television helicopters, all too present today in car chases, that help pursue Montag in the book.
