Book Review ⋯ Fahrenheit 541

So, this isn't exactly paranormal YA, but it's the first review I've written in a while.
Fahrenheit 451Title: Fahrenheit 451
Series: None
Author: Ray Bradbury
Pages: 147
Stars: ★★★★

Summary: The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden. 

Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires. And he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for ten years, and he had never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs or the joy of watching pages consumed by flames, never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid. Then Guy met a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. And Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do...

Review: This book was good. The writing style and wording was something that I had to get used to, and there were only 3 'chapters', so I had to find times when I could read for while without being interrupted. One thing that bugged me was how Montag's thoughts were written, he seemed to repeat himself a lot, and he also seemed to shout at himself a lot, which while he was on the run didn't seem very smart. I did like the ending though, the book felt finished.
