Six books everyone got wrong

Including your English teacher.

Take Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 (the temporature at which books warm), for example.

What probably pissed Bradbury off more than anything was that people completely disregarded his interpretation of his own book. In fact, when Bradbury was a guest lecturer in a class at UCLA, students flat-out told him to his face that he was mistaken and that his book is really about censorship. He walked out.
