Fahrenheit 451 is an exceptional novel written by Ray Bradbury. It's a science fiction novel with it taking place sometime jn the twenty-fourth century. Three atomic wars have taken place since 1990 and the main character is Montag. I believe that this novel follows the narrative structure really well.
