Fahrenheit 451 teaches its readers of the importance of intellectual and critical thinking. It's set in a society that has banned books as they are believed to brainwash its subjects. The book rejects superficial thinking and advocates for gaining knowledge. Fahrenheit 451 is heavy on figurative language which allows the reader to ponder and interpret the text in their own way.
