Review:
This short story was written in the 50's. Back then technology was evolving rapidly and the most important year in the 50's was the year of hope. This was the year 1958, a very prestigious year. The world exposition in Brussels was one among the things that took place. Technology was so important that people even thought world peace would come because of it. 

I believe the importance of technology to people made Bradbury want to write this story. This short story was astonishing. I can even say that this was one of the most interesting stories I had to read last semester for college. It has a rather strong message in my opinion. One of the things that happened in the story was that when entering a room, the room was lit. At my house, I have this system already. How long will it take before the other examples from the story will take place? I don’t think a room could be filled with real lions just by thinking about it, but the other things, things that make us lazy, will surely appear soon. 

Just like stated in the story, technology will take over the role of the parents and that’s what I’m most afraid of. 

I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to read a short, but very inspirational real.

Rating: 5/5
