I got a late assignment for the summer since i registered late for highschool and i need to write a dialectical journal of Fahrenheit 451... I've read the book already, understood it but i forgot one of the most important things of the assignment was to find keep a notepad and jot down some quotes that relate to the topics that i had to write about ... well i dont want to be bothered to reread the book over again to find some quotes so i came here to ask for help. I read some of the topics here asking for quotes and one thread caught my eye about amazon has some tool that you can search for text in books well i went on amazon and i couldnt find out how to access this .. later on i found a website which had quotes but theres one thing i have to have the page number for each quote i took some of the quotes from this page (http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Fahrenheit_451 for thoose who need help ) but i need the page number so what im asking is if someone could help me out with finding some quotes , the quotes have to be related to theese topics ; Individual versus Society, Censorship, Knowledge versus Ignorance, Utopia, and Isolation and/ or alienation. Another thing if you cannot help me with this is if someone could direct the link for the tool to find quotes in the book apparently can be found through amazon.
Thanks in advance, if you want to message me send one to Neonwarrior@hotmail.com ill be on 24/7 working on this.
Who in the world would make an assignment like that for a book like Fahrenheit 451? Maybe I'm just getting old and senile, but that has to be one of the most ponderous exhibits of a bored instructor that I have heard of in a long time. In fact, do you know exactly what a dialectical journal is? I take it it's what it says it is, a journal about dialects. Infuse me with hidden knowledge: just where do you intend to find this dialectical information in Fahrenheit 451?

Here http://www.amazon.com/Fahrenheit-451-Novel-Ray-Bradbury...7007?ie=UTF8&s=books is a searchable copy of a recent edition of "Fahrenheit 451." But you can't just look at a book page by page, you have to type in a certain word or phrase and then it finds it in the book. It won't let you read the whole book online. Then you may have to check every edition on Amazon (some searchable, some not) to see which printing(s) match up to yours as to page numbers. If you have a physical copy of the book it might be quicker to just leaf through it and write down notes the old-fashioned way.

NeonWarrior, I apologise. We get a lot of similar requests, usually from people who never return to the forum. Good luck with the journal!
