My name is Clarisse McClellan and I was 17 years old when I was struck by a car, ejected from a world where I never belonged. In fact, my whole family never really belonged; we were too set in our traditional ways. The fireman watched us for years, making us feel like criminals for thinking and discussing in our own home. But the moment I met a fireman named Guy Montag, I knew that all hope had not been lost. I look forward to seeing what he does, and how his new perspective of the world could change everything.
In regards to all matters literary, I welcome open and healthy discussion about the influence of books on our lives, and how they are far from being considered “obsolete technology”.
