I read the book, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. In this book there were many key people and main points to follow along with which made the whole story more complex but in an engaging way. The main plot of the book was about this man named Montag who was a fireman and lived in an economy where no one was allowed to read books or even have in-depth conversations. As the story line continued, Montag met some people and witnessed some events which made him question his stance in life and why were books so bad to read. Montag started to off road the normal pattern of the citizens in this book and faced crucial decisions that would change his perspective of the world forever. This book brought me to the edge of my seat while reading, imagining the book play out in my head.
I would recommend this book to people who really enjoy reading and like thinking of what might happen next. It was interesting to watch Montag’s curiosity over take the set rules by the community. Similar to us in our world we are full of curiosity and that can lead us through our decisions and experience we have in life. Despite the middle of Fahrenheit 451 getting a little long for me I did overall find this to be an educational read and encourage people to read it themselves to find out what Montag’s journey ends up like in the final chapter.
