4. http://youtu.be/RYLIaD7PZb0 This link is a audio voice reading of the book that helped me go over the novel and let me be able to have it to go over and hear it from another person's voice. Also, the author uses imagery, setting, and characterization to help his main themes of the novel and make them more clear. -Mia Hernandez

14. This story foreshadows the events to come in different ways. At the beginning of the story Montag looks at the ventilator grille and mentions a cluster of something behind it. We would later lear that there were books in there. We also see another even foreshadowed when Montag arrives in the firestation andthe mechanical hound doesn't like him and it gets Montag nervous. It shows that later on, he wouldbe chaced by one because he'd get involed in books. -Malik Pope

15. Fahrenheit 451 had many many strange events but not only did this book teach me lots of school related subjects, but it also taught me how to respect an author and his hard work.
