suspense build up seemed to go on for chapters until I got to the climactic part of thatsection. There is also a lot of irony because I knew when someone was at the door, or if someone was following Montag paragraphs before he did, every time. For example onthe first page you know that Clarisse is up ahead of Montag and that she is planning tofollow him home long before he even gets remotely near her. Suspense, action, and ironycreated a great setting and mood for the book, which made it very interesting to read.If I learned one thing from the book that I can apply to my daily life it would be,never give up on something you believe in if you know what you’re doing is right.Montag knew that books were amazing things that could take you to different places andteach you much wisdom from a little leather bound book. When he discovered the magicof books he never gave up and always read and learned as much as he possibly couldeven though he knew the consequences could be extreme.
The book had a big connectionto my emotions and I felt a lot of the same things I thought Montag was ‘feeling’ atcertain times. There were many places in the story where I felt that I needed to help himout and show him that he wasn’t doing anything wrong, and that his ‘friends’ were lyingto him. I think maybe the story does have a hidden meaning. I think it was trying to showus that there are many ways to view something and none of them may be right, but if you push others to believe what you believe in nothing good can come from it. This book hadnumerous themes that were displayed throughout the story. The one, most universaltheme I found dealt with the concept of censorship. For example everyone was told that books were bad and dangerous because one person thought so. The citizens didn’t evenknow why books were forbidden. They just trusted the fact that someone had a badexperience with books and banned them forever. How were they to find out bythemselves whether books were bad or not if they weren’t given the chance to haveexperiences of their own with them? Plus, there was no other source of informationexcept for books. You can’t learn from others mistakes, especially if you are totally blindto the nature of their mistake and the consequences of it. This is why I believe the themeto be, “Censorship of anyone or anything will only lead to question and interest in doingor seeing what is censored.” I would definitely recommend this book to people who wanta good adventure and really like mystery. In absolute conclusion, alone, the characters,
