The answers for the questions are included.
Fireman Guy Montag’s job it is to start fires, and he enjoys it. Now that houses are fireproof, he burns books. That’s because books are filled with confusing and contradictory ideas that undermine the system. No one is allowed to read books, and that’s okay because no one even seems to want to read. Fun, entertainment, and the pursuit of pleasure are what matter now. Montag doesn’t question the status quo.
That is, until he meets his new 17-year-old neighbor girl who tells him of a past when people were not afraid and encounters a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. Montag’s world is turned upside down. And it may cost him his life.
Originally designed to examine the issue of censorship, this novel is especially poignant for Christians who are faced with growing persecution against sharing one’s faith and the validity of God’s Word. What do these issues say to us as a “people of The Book?”
The novel is sold separately.
