This dystopian novel about America sometime in the future, where books are illegal and “firemen” burn them whenever they are found. The story revolves around fireman Guy Montag who realizes his will to protect literature and knowledge. Faber, a former English professor agrees to work with him to achieve his goals. However, when his secret book collection is exposed to his wife and her friends, he has to burn down his house. He then finds himself running outside the city to avoid arrest until he meets a secret community who share the same goal as him: to preserve knowledge through books. Despite being written decades ago, this book still holds the ability to remind readers of the significance and power of knowledge. I loved the theme, characters, and words of this novel and this book is for you if you are ready for a thought-provoking and captivating novel, a timeless classic by Ray Bradbury.
