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. I think people should be allowed to access information and they could judge by themselves what’s right and wrong […]

People in Fahrenheit 451

In Fahrenheit 451 books are banned and most people does not take it much into consideration and instead take interests into other forms of media. In my opinion, books provide more imagination which surprised me that people in the book all ignores them and only take interest in televisions and other forms of media which […]

How Montag developed througout the book

Ultimate life goal: Happiness

I figured that the reason firemen do what they do is to make people “happy”. Yes, everyone wants to be happy, it’s the ultimate life goal of all human beings. However, the system within the future world of Farenheit451 just doesn’t work. Books about lung cancer making smokers feel bad? Why not just simply get […]

Being a Human

While reading the book, I feel sorry for the people who don’t get a chance to think on their own because there is absolutely nothing to think about. People who don’t think are doing the “right thing” but the people who do, on the other hand, gets eliminated, Clarrisse for example. Who says happiness comes […]
