9 Surprising Banned Books

1

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury reportedly wrote this novel in the basement of the UCLA library -- on a pay-by-the-hour typewriter. Ironically, the story examines censorship, but unbeknownst to Bradbury, his publisher released a censored edition in 1967, nixing all profanity so the book would be safe for distribution in schools. A school in Mississippi banned the book in 1999 for the use of the very words Bradbury insisted be put back into the book when it was reprinted.
