People were strong when they are "on the earth," looking at reality. However,
the society is holding them up, and the people are perishing, are committing
suicide and killing others. He showed Montag the importanceof knowing the

But just like Huckleberry Finn, the book was just trying to show what life was like during that time.

Before describing the problem, I would like to mention the advantages of reading because if people realize the benefits of reading one book in a month, they begin to develop reading habits. First of all, reading is good for both human psychology and physiology. Psychologist Dr. Kalyoncu and neurologist Dr. Ovak states that reading increases the brain blood flow in addition to speeding up the brain’s metabolism and the electrical activity (64). They also point out that reading delays ageing and diseases such as Alzheimer, which stems from ageing as well. Other major advantages of reading are that our vocabulary gets richer; also we could learn different culturesVIEW DOCUMENT

The Berlin Book Burning had a colossal impact on the Nazis; it allowed their ideas to spread, it increased the awareness andVIEW DOCUMENT

before dying in Larissa. He is known as the founder of holistic
medicine, because he was the first to attribute illness to be one of
the four elements - fire, water, earth, and air - rather than an
affliction given by the gods. However, locals believed Hippocrates was

Montag lives in a dystopian society, which has been taken over by government censorship, overpopulation, and control of the masses by the media.
