Summary: Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires …
The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning … along with the houses in which they were hidden.
Guy Montag enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames … never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid.
Then he met a professor who told him of a future in which people could think … and Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do
I want to read this one because it was my favorite English teacher’s favorite book.
