Observations about the Passage

They also notice that society is moving to fast to take time and notice things such as dew on the morning grass or making a billboard loinger so they'll notice it. I think it does relate to our society because everyone is in a big hurry to get places instead of taking there time. - Tony, Brandon, Davona, and a few more.

they've already developed jet cars. The government is a very strict censorship which means they block out anything they don't want their public to hear about such as burning books. It's kinda like Area 51. The setting for the government shows that the people don't have many rights - Taylor

Questions

i really dont get why people are put in jail for going like 3 miles over the speed limit. - Scott & Amanda

We really can't say that we understand what they're talking about. At first they were talking about him being a fireman and the burning houses and then automatically changed subjects. - Chelsey & Alysia

Other observations from the book

people go day by day not questioning the things that are happening around them they get so deep into there jobs that they don't realize the things around like the dew on the grass

One thing i noticed about the setting is that the people dont think.

They don't know as much of the past. It's in the future and much information is lost.

Because the increase of technology, people tend not to think about what's important for society. The setting in the book is very different from our society. Many people don't notice what is happening in their world; they're to worried about themselves.

What makes this book futuristic? What do Bradbury's inventions mean/represent?
