Ice breaking question

  1. Are there any similarities between banning and burning books? Or their end goal is the same?

Into the deep of the novel

  1. At the beginning of the novel, Clarisse says “17 and insane, they go together.“. Does Clarisse mean that the younger ones are usually the ones that fight back, the ones that questioned the status QUO? 
  2.  Clarrise also says “You never stop to think what I have asked you.” How many people are living under indoctrination and don’t question what goes about or life itself?
  3. In the novel, they mentioned that the cases of suicides have gone up, why?
  4. Why is happiness a trigger of action in the novel?
  5. Manipulation is a strong theme in the novel, what makes people so manipulative?
  6.  The captain says “Make them feel that they are thinking by overwhelming them and giving them no important information.” Isn’t this what people are doing right now with social media.? 

Literary questions

  1. What does the phrase “A book is a loaded gun in the house next door…Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man?” mean?
  2. Why is Mildred building walls in the house? 
  3. Why is the fire engine described as a dragon?
  4. What does fire symbolize in the novel?
  5. The firemen are symbols of what?
