This book is, of course considered a classic. The trouble for me is I don't seem to understand it, it seems to move in to metaphor very often but I never know when. Since it's so well regarded I feel like there's something I'm missing. Does anybody have any insight they could open my mind to?

GuitarGirl I completely agree with everything you are saying! Consider rereading when your older, that's what I'm going to do. I have done this with other books and find it eye opening! I would think about the big picture: Why would the government keep information from the people? Why is Montag so distant from his wife? Why did Montag change throughout the book?
I hope this helps!
