Fahrenheit 451 review

Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury takes place in a dystopian, futuristic United States, in which all books are illegal. The main character, Guy Montag is a fireman. However, in this society firemen don't put out fires, they burn books. When Guy realizes that books are not harmful and that they are full of knowledge, he steals some that are about to be burned and he starts to read and love them. Guy's quest to hide his secret passion for reading from antagonistic authorities is the main storyline of this adventurous book. Personally, I liked that throughout the story, the characters portray their emotions through their actions. It adds a lot of life to the story along with showing the true mindset of the characters. I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys dystopian literature. One flaw about this book is that it is somewhat difficult for the reader to make a personal connection to the text because it is set in the future in a very unrealistic society. However, this book still gets four out of five stars overall.
