30 Day Book Challenge: Day 14

Day 14- Book that should be on HS/college required reading list

I had a lot of ideas for books that I could choose for this. Next to 1984 I would probably pick Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I liked 1984 because it showed (at least to me) the importance of independent thought and the need to keep governments from taking total control over its people.

Yes, there were some parts that dragged on a bit, but for the most part you see a world that is strictly regulated and where the government controls everything and regularly spies on the people. I think that a book used to educate should be a source for topics of conversation and this book has plenty.

What would you recommend? Let me know in the comments!
