I read Fahrenheit 451 in high school, that is when you read it when I was in school. Now I imagine you read it in middle school. I'm not sure. Anyhow, the impact to me 35 year old me wasn't as great as it was to 15 year old me. It is still good and the hound is still creepy. I found it hard to read this and not think of the movie the entire time.
