22. I'm not amazed ...

My daughter also had a teacher in a non-related subject that said during casual conversation post-parent-teacher discussion that his favorite novel was _Fahrenheit 451_. Since this is one of my favorites as well, I struck up a conversation and quickly realized he'd never even read it, or if he had, didn't remember it.

I don't know if you seen the movie, but the movie changes some things from the book, things that are rather glaring to those who know the book. In short, what he described was the movie, not the book.
