Fahrenheit 451 book Fahrenheit 451

Ray Bradburry
FIC BRADBUR

3 stars.

Describe the book: A novel set in a dystopia revolves around a fireman named Guy Montag.No, he doesn't put out fires rather sets them. All the homes who sneak books in their homes where they aren't welcome because for those who risk it know "[there is] something in books, something we can’t imagine." Guy doesn't care until someone opens his eyes. Eyes to see reality.

What did you think: This book gave me mixed emotions several times throughout the book.As he starting finding an interest in books-- asking Faber to "teach me to understand what I read." Relived yet afraid for Guy because he "Risked Spectacularly" to do what he thought was right in a place where what was right was wrong. An action to help himself as well as society.

Who would you recommend it to: Book addicts and those who enjoy u/dystopia

What did you think: I really like this book for its well developed characters and how it shows the struggles of both the rich and the poor.

Deadpool minibus Deadpool minibus

4 stars.

Describe the book: Deadpool is unique because he knows he's in a book. Until now he's no motive to do anything of it. So sick of being controlled he sets to kill the idea of heros. In this quest he causes many other Deadpools to awaken,one rebels and kills him after he killed the other Deadpools. But soon after he finds out that its all in his head tearing himself apart.

What did you think: This is one of my favorite books because it is different from every other book I have read. Every character in the book is another part of his personality,some are pretty and some not so much. But in the end he sacrifices both the good and the bad to clean his sleight of life and start over. Showing the internal conflict of good and evil. I love it

Who would you recommend it to: critical thinkers and science-fiction lovers
