What book predicted the future (modern time) the best? I nominate Fahrenheit 451 (1953):

>everyone lives in isolated detached housing with minimal social interaction
>parents uninvolved with their children
>using earbuds while walking outside to isolate yourself from everyone around you
>VR and streaming
>everyone hooked on drugs to sustain the fantasy
>non-technical books are for old people and unavailable to 99% of society
>police using helicopters to track suspects
>abandoned railways and infrastructure in general
