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!
While I enjoyed this thought-provoking classic, it was not one of my favorites. I just felt so cut off at the end. The story just stopped with no notice. The plot just ended. I’m someone who needs a complete ending to be satisfied, this story left me wanting so much more. Besides the ending, this story only received three out of five stars from me because of how slow the story progressed. I had initially started reading this book last summer, it failed to keep me captivated so much so that I neglected it for a year. The only reason I picked it up again was that I had borrowed it from a friend, thankfully he hadn’t been missing it.
