Your first question is thematic in nature. There are quite a few themes that you can consider. Censorship is certainly a big theme. Members of society focus only on entertainment, immediate gratification and speeding through life. If books are found, they are burned and their owner is arrested. If the owner refuses to abandon the books, as is the case with the Old Woman, he or she often dies, burning along with them. People with interests outside of technology and entertainment are viewed as strange, and possible threats.You can check out more at the link below.
