I didn't read this in school or study all the meanings behind it so I'm sure I missed a lot. I think I get that it's against book burning and focusing so much on entertaining like tv that we miss the wisdom in life. People often become kind of like sheep and just follow instead of educating themselves. I think it's a super smart book, and I can definitely see why it is so popular. Even though I do think it should be read, it didn't hold my attention so well. I read it just because it's one of those that must be read.
