Essay on Fahrenheit 451. Why It Should in the List Top 10 Books to Read
The Author of the book Fahrenheit 451 is Ray Bradbury. The book Fahrenheit 451 should be added to the news outlet ¨Top 10 Books to Read Before You Graduate¨ because it makes the readers think, has a great moral and story, and is relevant to the world today.
Fahrenheit 451 shouldn’t be on the Top 10 reading list because it involves fulgar language and gory graphic contents along with violence. All throughout the book it talks about kids killing each other and a place called the Fun Park which is a place they go to break glass run each other over with cars and all sorts of other dangerous things. “"Empty the theatres save for clowns and furnish the rooms with glass walls and pretty colours running up and down the walls like confetti or blood or sherry or sauterne.” This quote talks about how the blood from the clowns limbs being cut off would decorate the parlour walls.
The book ,Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, makes the reader think about what they are reading and fully engages their brain. The book uses lots of figurative language and references that you have to think about the meaning and put those together to understand the moral of the story. “IT was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed. With the brass nozzle in his fists, with this great python spitting its venomous kerosene upon the world, the blood pounded in his head, and his hands were the hands of some amazing conductor playing all the symphonies of blazing and burning to bring down the tatters and charcoal ruins of history. “This shows an example of the elaborate figurative language the author uses in the book. All of this quote came from just the first page of the book, going on throughout the book it only gets more elaborate and descriptive.
Fahrenheit uses morals and references to real life situations and scenarios that teach life lessons and bad outcomes of the world we can prevent. Ray Bradbury says "You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them." This is an example of one of the quotes he uses to show an outcome of life that we can stop and learn from. This quote relates directly to the book because within the book the society is not allowed to read or own any books that aren’t regulated by their government.
Also,the book Fahrenheit 451 is relevant to the world today, because it is based on what the world would be like with technology surrounding everything. This is relevant because in today's world everyone is using technology all the time and everywhere they go. In the book the parlour walls are giant TV’s that talk to you and act like you are in the show or play being displayed. Everyone in the Fahrenheit 451 society is always using their parlour walls never really talking to anyone else or doing anything other than watch TV. This is just like our society today everyone is always sitting down watching TV or playing video games never doing anything else that doesn't involve technology. “Montag reached inside the parlour wall and pulled the main switch. The images drained away, as if the water had been let out from a gigantic crystal bowl of hysterical fish.” This is an example of how advanced their technology is a like how technology is today.
