Bradbury’s story almost has like his own world. He doesn’t want anything like we have today, he wants to tell the story in a different way and make you think differently than if he told us in like futuristic way it would be better and in a way worse. If it would be modern day, i feel like it would make sense more and make it easier for the people who don 't catch on to the book. The book is old, and i feel like modern day people don 't understand the way he is trying to get his point across.
The author of the science fiction book Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury is taken by most readers as pessimistic. The reason for this is because of the plot of the book being that instead of firemen stopping fires they create them. In addition to that, he seems pessimistic because of occurring events that happen throughout the book. The main character of the book is a "fireman" but his job as a fireman is to burn all books and houses with books in them. This seems very pessimistic, but as the book goes on and throughout the book it shows that Bradbury could also be optimistic. I believe Ray Bradbury is mainly pessimistic with some optimism because burning houses down as our future in society is very pessimistic, also through all the "new" mechanical technology that is ruining the world of Fahrenheit 451 which is very pessimistic, yet at the same time Montag 's courageous actions Bradbury is showing his optimism.

Ray Bradbury born in 1920 to a middle class family. Bradbury went on to write and publish over five hundred pieces of literature. One of the novels he wrote was Fahrenheit 451, where he attempted to predict what the United States of America would look like in the future. The novel illustrates the idea of a totalitarian government and society burning books to stop the spread of knowledge, by following the development of the main character Guy Montag. Furthermore, the novel bring up the idea of Plato’s cave, in which Montag attempts to overcome the ideas of the society he grew up around. Plato’s Cave portrays prisoners captive in a cave and forced to look at the shadows projected on the wall in front of them for their entire life, until one of them is set free and allowed he choice of going back to the cave or leaving the cave . Many suggest that the novel Fahrenheit 451 represents the Allegory of the Cave given by the philosopher Plato; from the symbolism of the main character realizing the truth of his society and government, to wanting to know more about the situations around him and how they came to be, and finally making the decision to not go back to the society he grew up in.
