If you haven’t read it by now, it’s not too late.
What it’s about: Guy Montag, a firefighter in the future, has one job to do. Start fires. Specifically, set fire to books and the houses that contain them. This book is about what happens when he veers from the path and questions his job, the people he knows, and his life in general.
It’s clear to me why this book is a classic, and it embarrasses me to admit that it took me this long to read it. Bradbury achieves a perfect balance of internal dialogue, external interactions, and overall description, and everything is masterfully written and well-controlled. Fahrenheit is another one of those that seems to slip by you, but has profound aftereffects. 5 stars.
