Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

The idea that a fireman was burning the books was a very interesting concept. Fireman are seen as volunteers in the real world but in this world they only destroy. We loves the concept of a book dying with a person that one person could remember an entire book and if they died a book died with them. Is the world  better without books if media ( the walls ) take over your whole being with the example of Mildred referring to the walls as her family. The idea that the crazy people are those who read books when actually the book readers are more aware of reality than the media obsessed race. We found this book very gripping every moment  has a different plot twist. The idea of modern society was quite absurd the mechanical hound the staged death of Montag the idea that those who believe in reality and that tragedy is out there and war is coming are the outcasts the brief war because of the advanced nuclear war. An altogether inspiring book we really loved this novel.
