  Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Review by: Joanna C.
Georgia, Grade 7

One interesting aspect is that Montag had a bland life, until he had met Clarisse. I find this
intriguing because Clarisse was making Montag happy and not his wife. His spouse did not seem
to act like herself because she would always be stolid when listening to her programs. Clarisse
seemed to act like a minstrel that brightens up Montag’s day. Clarisse, a girl from the present
when books were legal to read, is unlike the other people in the book. The society has
conformity; everybody had the same opinion about books.

I like this book because it seemed very interesting, because this is the world that thinks books are useless and should be burnt. Everybody seems to think the same, but Clarisse was the girl who stood out. She thinks differently and wonders a lot. She does not think that books are odious words that are useless. Clarise seems to be curious about them. That is why I think her thoughts are different from others and her thinking is unique. Montag is in a world where society has conformity, but Clarisse is changing his way of thinking by using pantomime.
