Dystopia Essay #2
Reading this book was painful but it definitely reminded me of our world. It does relate to the world today in some ways. The people in the book were mostly getting taking over by technology. The people in the book don’t always think for themselves, just like some people in our community. It’s weird how the book is suppose to be a dystopia but people in our world our like that too. Montag was made to think that people burn books and aren’t suppose to read. No one should be told if they can or can not read. One part of the story I tought was completely different from the world today was when Montag asked a woman how her children were. In the world today if the lady didn’t have children she would just say she didn’t have any politely. But instead the lady had a hissyfit and said, "You know I haven't any! No one in his right mind, the good Lord knows wouldn’t have children" (96). I would hate to live in the world of Fahrenheit 451.
