As much as this sounds like Montag is a crazy character he was hoping to search for the answer to the consequences of being different. For example, Montag was brave by keeping the books he found which were books that he had to burn, and even would show them to his friends in order to spread the fact that books weren’t harmful.

Despite these facts about Montag he was courageous as a fact he had dedication when he decided to seek for what he was looking for.
Characters such as Kristen and Clark seem to be lost when trying to reach a state of happiness before the pandemic. Mandel leaves characters to find their inner fulfillment after the collapse, despite their surroundings being far worse than previous.

The truth is that most of us would be willing to accept that idea that man is going to be able to pull ourselves from the deepest tragedy we are through. In Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 the novel has a more optimistic view to what we believed would happen if the world was to be brought down to it's knees. This book shows us that this is possible we don’t always have to have a pessimistic view of humans.
