I read this book in 7th grade, and it was pretty interesting, especially about the protagonist's wife (watching something that we can safely say is the TV for the whole fucking day). Never finished it though, after dude started to run away from society....WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS BOOK THAT MAKES IT OFFENSIVE?????



BTW

1984 >>>>> Farenheit 451
