  Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Review by: Andy K.
Georgia, Grade 7

An interesting aspect of the book, Fahrenheit 451, is that the mechanical hound replaced the
guards or police. The Hounds are there to track and catch victims. The Hound can also track someone by
scent, it can also be controlled remotely to switch its victim. It switched its victim when they chased Guy
Montag when he was a fugitive and crossed the lake, they just found a random man and paralyzed him for
their pride because of the tyranny of a government.

I liked the book Fahrenheit 451 because of its censorship. In the book, they censor anything that
people don’t like or agree with, and most topics have at least one book about them, making books the
main thing to be destroyed. Which makes a nice and homely house into a horridly, charcoal ruin, when a
book is found within the house. Censorship is both a good and bad thing. The censorship is a problem for
those who are older or know of the past, it Is also good for those who don’t like the ideas of the past, for
example, the Bible, the Christians who worship God, and the atheist who don’t believe in God.
