What I Read - Fahrenheit 451

I have been trying to scratch off a few more books from my classic novels list lately.  I have wanted to read Fahrenheit 451 since like the 9th grade and I am really not sure why I have never picked it up, but I finally got around to reading it last week.  I am a big fan of the dystopian future world novels but honestly, this one took me a little bit to get in to.  I struggled a little bit at first figuring out what was going on and picturing the setting but once I finally got it all straightened out, I really enjoyed it.  It's a pretty short story about a world where books have been banned because they make people sad or feel too powerful and firemen's jobs are to burn any banned books as well as the whole home where they find them.  

Guy Montag is a fireman who begins questioning the whole book burning idea and wants out of it.  The story follows him as he decides what to do and where to go about the whole mess he gets himself in.  I don't want to say too much and give away the whole story but I will say that it's a "different" kind of book with an interesting and suspenseful story.  I don't think I could say it was the best book I ever read, but I did enjoy it for the most part and am glad to mark it off my reading list.
