Wishlist Wednesday


119787Summary: 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.

  1. I made a commitment to myself to reread three books from my school days, and this is one of them! I remember really loving it, but it’s been many years and I want to read it again. What a great choice for Wishlist Wednesday! I hope you enjoy!
