    I found Farenheit 451 scary in how relevant this book is in 2016! I love Ray Bradbury's gift for juxtaposed and unique descriptions, especially of emotions. I appreciate how tight he writes. His characters are 3-dimensional and stand alone. An articulate, disturbing read.

    Okay, I only read Fahrenheit 451 because that's all I had to read. BUT I thought it was terrible. I mean, the fact that I had to read it for school was already bad, but the book itself made no sense to me. I think it was because of the way Bradbury wrote the book, his style of writing and the ideas he illustrated in it that made barely any sense to me. It was written in the 1950's right? And it was talking about a year past 2050 where books are being burnt because they are banned. Because I have Okay, I only read Fahrenheit 451 because that's all I had to read.

Because I have to analyze this book for school, I can actually say a lot about it, but the thing that really connects to it the most for me (what makes it make sense to me) is this quote by Lucien Carr: "To be reborn, you have to die first." That quote right there relates to the book in the way that society has to collapse completely so that the hidden population of book lovers can start over and build a proper society from scratch. I don't know, other than that the book barely made sense to me.

    Guy Montag is a fireman. His job isn't to put out fires though, it's to start fires and throw books into them. Books are a source of unhappiness, but Guy is still unhappy. If books are hidden in your house, a mechanical hound flanked by helicopters is ready to track down everyone who tries to keep books and defy the law. This book has many levels to it, filled with vivid emotions of Guy's hiding of books behind a wall, to failing to love his wife. I loved it and I would recommend it.

    Overall, I was very unimpressed and disappointed by this book. As a lover of dystopian type books I was really looking forward to reading it but by the first chapter I was already dreading the next. The main reason for disliking the book is purely the creativity of the story. Very linear and almost boring. For a book that was wrote in three days though I say well done!

    Very well written book, with happenings that are now happening today. My high school students enjoyed it immensely. (I did not like the language, but we tried to ignore it)

The book contained a lot of foreshadowing. An example is when the first time, the sensory hound starts barking at Montag. This was foreshadowing because the hound is supposed to find people who have books, and since Montag has books, it shows how he will get caught. I also thought it was really neat how Montag's wife ratted him out. The book also has a lot of col scenes where Montag is trying to hide from people becau I thought the book was very good.

It is also interesting how a 17 yr old like Clarrise changes Montag's point of view on the world, making him want to go against his previous beliefs to the point where he doesn't want to be a firefighter anymore. In my opinion, this novel is worthy of 4 out of 5 stars and is definitely worth reading. I would want to see a prequel to this book to talk about the past since the book takes place in the future so it would work really well. It can talk about the process behind the changes in the world, seen in this novel.

    Fahrenheit 451 was an exceptional book. It featured a dystopian society similar to some in other countries today. There are parallels between North Korea and this society. There is a lack of thinking for yourself. Without these books, you must stay uneducated other than what the government wants you to see. By doing this, a society of mindless sheep is created. Similar to North Korea, the citizens must abide by their government because that is all they know. Overall, this novel used easy to unde Fahrenheit 451 was an exceptional book.

I dreaded reading this book and feel it was a waste of my time. I do not see why it is supposed to be such a great book. I've been able to distinguish what the consequences of books being banned would be. However, the plot wasn't too terribly bad. Go ahead and read if you must.

There's more bad language than I'd like to see in a required book for 8th graders, but it brings up many thought-provoking questions. Emphasizes the value of education, literacy, thinking for one's self, freedom of thought. Genuine relationships that involve conversation are novel in a society where people spend leisure time engaging in virtual relationships (being "part" of a TV family).

    I rated this book a three because even though it is an excellent book it was very hard for me to follow along with being a sophomore in high school when I read the book. You could tie this book into current events by having the students explain how modern day media could possibly "censor" information to its viewers. This book is definitely intended for middle school aged children.

    This book is one of the books that you want to keep around. Sure, it's pretty short, but I personally like it that way, because if the book was continued, it would probably got old really fast and pretty boring. This book is an excellent read if you have some time to kill and want something somewhat dystopian. I really recommend it.

    Un futuro que no parece estar lejos de la realidad en la que vivimos, si bien Farenheit 451 nos teletrasporta a un mundo muy cercano a nosotros. Más que una novela parece darnos una advertencia de lo que nos podemos llegar a convertir

    I read this book because I'm in a theather reading club and was going to be represented in the theater of my city. I enjoyed a lot because for me it was very surprising discovering some similarities between the period of the book and nowadays.

    Strangely more oppressive than the far more famous and brutal 1984. The firemen’s relentless destruction of knowledge and art makes this a genuinely terrifying dystopia.

    Reread this for High School English. It is still a powerful tale, gritty and makes one ponder.

    Very boring book the only good part about the book is when the sucking machine sucks the drug out of the main character wife I don't remember the name of the character.
