Trisha I read this book a long time ago and remember thinking that it was a pretty deep novel. To think that it was the job of "firefighters" to set the fires instead of put them out, and that people are trying to memorize books because they are all being burned, pretty scary thought.
Why was this one banned?

Yes,I've heard that the Bible being burned in this book has really pissed off some conservative Christians in the past.
