The Significance of the Salamander: Discuss

Speaking of Ray Bradbury, the Guardian's online book club has chosen Fahrenheit 451 for their first read. If you've never read it, or never had the chance to discuss it with others, now would be a good time to pick it up. The club will reconvene on September 5 to start discussing Montag, the seashell, and how little has changed in the half-century since the book was published.
