I'm pretty sure most schools have had it as required learning at some time or another.

I have, in fact i just finished it. I couldn't put it down for 3 hours. It's one of my favorite books now.

Did anybody else enjoy it as much? It's definitely a breather from Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter that's for sure.

I had to read this last year for english and I honestly hated it, I don't even think I finished it. For some reason I just couldn't seem to stay interested in it.

I absolutely loved this book!
I read it in 8th grade and freshman year and it only got better.

I read this for one of my modules last semester and was quite indifferent to it. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. I liked some of the imagery, but the science fiction stuff (ie. the Mechanical Dog) just put me off.

Love it! I was never required to read it in school, but I wish I was so my classmates would have at least read the cliffnotes :)
I'm definitely a huge fan of Ray Bradbury.

It wasn't my favorite required reading book but I apprecated it and understood it for it's importance. To me reading something like Night which is a true story and by far more sinister in the way the government controlled things, I find more powerful and impactful.

I read this book as part of my Advanced Higher English dissertation work. Read it along with George Orwell's 1984 + A Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. The latter is wonderful. One of my favourite books. If you like a good dystopia (+ if you enjoyed Fahrenheit 451, I'm guessing you do) then give A Handmaid's Tale a read. Another recommendation, whilst we're on the dystopia topic, is Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. =]
