Fahrenheit 451

We finished reading the book Fahrenheit 451. This book is about a society that makes fires instead of putting them out. The main character is a man named Montag who believes that his job is shady. He doesn't understand why they burn books. He started wondering this after they went to a house where a lady burned in the house with her books because she loved them so much. I know that I would die in my house because I had books. I would get out!

I believe that what these people were doing was crazy! I don't like to read, I mean it's okay but I wouldn't Burn books so that everyone in the society is the same person. I think that is a crazy idea. Wouldn't you want some people to be smart, or know more things than others? That gives people value. If our society was like this today I don't know what I would do. It would be so boring to live like that. I wish that they would make another book of this because I want to know if they found Montag. I had so many questions at the end of this book. My main question is did they ever let people start reading?
