Bradbury in Fahrenheit 451 describes a futuristic society, inspired by the changes at the end of World War II. People are disconnected from each other and do not have awareness of the people around them, all thinking is inhibited, and there are daily suicide attempts. Books are burned to stop independent thoughts, and wars are extremely common. This riveting adventure and dystopian novel follows the journey of Montag, a fireman, who recognizes that something is wrong in his society. This book is an absolute must-read for everyone, whether a teenager or an adult. In today’s world of growing addiction to technology, the book is a warning to keep ourselves in check and become aware of how we are becoming similar to and how to make sure we do not reach that height of ignorance as the people in Fahrenheit 451. I would absolutely recommend this book for anyone, especially people who are looking for books that are philosophical but also thrilling.
