This book, once being a mere summer reading assignment, has become one of my favorite novels. The reader is brought into the mind of a depressed man and is able to see his emotional journey from a thoughtless fireman to someone who would risk everything he has in life for the very literature he's paid to destroy. There are layers upon layers of thought-provoking symbolism and each layer, although written beautifully, can easily turns into a confusing jumble of words. This novel challenges and compels the reader to think about society and it's problems and sometimes requires him/her to re-read a sentence twice or three times to understand it's meaning.
The author creates a full set of individually unique characters and an exciting plot set in a dystopian future. The novel, although abstruse at times, is a poetic and engaging classic that everyone should read at least once in their lives. I highly recommend this book! :)  Search for Book
