by Ray Bradbury

Fahrenheit 451 is about a future in America where books are burned by firemen along with the houses that are hiding books. Montag, the main character, has been a firefighter for 10 years. He has never questioned why they burn the books until he meets a 17 year old girl who tells him about the past and how no one was afraid of thinking.

I liked the book because I enjoy reading books about the future. It makes you think about how the future can be if people were to stop thinking. I like how the book had a young girl who was questioning why the future was so different from the past. It makes you think about how our present is different and sometimes worse than the past of many.

I would recommend this book to people who has ever questioned why we do things the way we do them today. Anyone who thinks about how different the future will be should read this book. Also the book is a great example of how there will always be people who will not settle for what everyone is doing and will always try to change things for the better.
