That they are full of useless things. And since there is nothing in them of importance, what's the point of reading them? Reading books is against the law. Page Number 51- “Books leveled down to a sort of past pudding norm”. The people in the book believe that books are pointless and just take up space.
Some movies are better than others when it comes to portraying the book in the same light as it was written and this movie does a good job of making the book come to life except three keys important details.

Montag has been stealing books, and Faber has been teaching him about them. He learns that books reveal the bad parts of life, which is why many people hate them and decide not to read.

It involves putting books into firemen’s homes so that they would get burnt along with all the firehouses.
We all know that satirical stories are written to attract readers; we, as readers, somehow relate to them as we compare and contrast them to our own lives, looking unto both sympathetic and unsympathetic characters, and questioning which are we most like. Raymond Carver, who is noted for his “minimalistic type of prose,” proves what we know of the typical satire. In his short story, “Cathedral,” we realize the difference between looking and seeing. The sympathetic character of the story is Robert, a blind man who sees the world not with sight but with insight. He meets a man whose vision is intact but fails to see the world at its best.
Throughout the story Sonny’s Blue, there are many different symbols that represent different things, with the disparate functions. Light and darkness are the two universal symbols of Sonny’s Blues.

“It fascinates me, but as someone who abhors materialism and its impact, I would not call it my favorite. Hedonism and industrialization predominated that glorious epoch, and people squandered their money and Wall Street inhaled the masses. This poor earth had to suffer the material demands of consumerist people and no one appreciated the abstract anymore.

Using color as a description in books can really help the reader better understand what the author is trying to get across. Color can mean so much more than shades and tints, it can show true meaning and emotion. It's proven that warm colors trigger thoughts of happiness, energy, and optimism.
In the short story "Cathedral" by Raymond Carver his choice of narrative point of view is a glance into a cruel, non filtered mans first-person outlook on life. It provides a more depth view into the emotions, and stray of the narrator. When the narrator “speaks,” his mood and inner traits are revealed by his tone of “voice.” This adds to the powerfulness of the story because we hear things he doesn't directly or intentionally reveal; as a result, we know him at a deeper level. For instance, the narrator’s sulkiness of others’, close relationships with his wife (who is never named) is apparent from comments he makes.

In Fahrenheit 451, information is restricted, and people are given so many useless “‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information”(pg 58). So they’ll be ‘happy’, but it is a fake happiness. Because of this people think they are happy, but commit suicide because they are not. There are also a small few who still read books, but they must keep it a secret, or the books
