I adore watching film adaptations of novels because I find it particularly interesting to compare the novel to the film. Therefore, I had my Fahrenheit 451 novel out whilst watching the film. This made it easier for me to catch all the differences between the novel and the movie. I was disappointed that the film adaptation cut out so many important things from the novel.

However, he was completely cut out from the entire film.

However, Montag realizes that Faber should not be changing the world, and instead should change himself and his cowardly ways.

A popular sub-genre commonly mentioned when one thinks of a dystopia is the ever so terrifying rogue technological future society that we one day might become. What is it that makes this idea so popular and so scary? It is the fear hidden within the unknown, the question of, what if we become too advanced.
