Words: 455

Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel that has a controlling government. In

this book, books are illegal and are being burned so everyone has an equal

In conclusion F451 and WWII were very similar even though the time

periods were different they both did what they did for the idea of a perfect

society, which they will both come/came to find out cant
