Why are books seen as so dangerous by people like Millie and Captain Beatty? Do people ever fear books today? If so, why? In your response, consider the issues of censorship and book banning.

Millie finds books dangerous because they're illegal. She is afraid of putting her life in danger.

Beatty finds books dangerous because they make people think, afford knowledge, and contradict the laws of the world he lives in. Books give people ideas..... an even worse, they make people as questions.
