Short and good

While cut and much shorter than the original audiobook it is a worthwhile listen.
I used the original audiobook for my extended night watch and this shorter dramatization for my shorter night watch. Both are great and useful for their time of use.
I highly reccomend to listen to both of the audiobooks.
I am happy as I finally know what Fahrenheit 451 is generally about. I was intrigued as the number 451 often occurs in certain video games in the immersive sim genre.
I will be listening again occasionally.

Music was annoying

Whilst I liked the dramatisation I could not get along with the music that kept playing and ended up returning it before I was even 20 minutes in.
I ended up purchasing the normal reading of the book instead.
The sample was a good representation of the reading however I didn’t realise the music that played towards the end of the sample is similar the the kind of music that was played quite a few times and it was quite distracting when played with characters speaking as well

This might be great for some but just not to my taste
