Reflection – Article

I also read ‘A Child Called “It” ‘ before when I was in year 9 or 10.  I think it was the first time I ever just picked a book up because of it’s title and actually finished reading it.  The story is very interesting but sometimes, I just had to put the book down and […]

The importance of Books

By reading Fahrenheit I suddenly realised the importance of books since I got to read about a world without them. Without books people are limited to their thinking and acts as a control by the government.

People…..

People choose to see what they want to see. By not knowing the truth, let people live without stress, and everyone can enjoy living day by day senselessly. People only care about them self and decided to look over responsibilities. As people don’t read anymore books and only listen to the news past television etc. […]

How Montag developed througout the book

After reading the book I realised that Montag at the beginning of the book and at the end of the book are like two completely opposite characters. He evolved into another person. In the begining of the book he likes to his jobs and  his determinations are sky high when it comes to burning books. […]
