Four. Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury and Tim Hamilton

One could say about this book โ€œin the house of the wooden spoon blacksmithโ€, because precisely in the argument a world in which the letter is prohibited and everything that is read are illustrations is criticized.

In addition, it is interesting to immerse yourself in it to have a stylistic and visual contrast with what was the film that was shot on the Truffaut novel.
