Would we want to spend time there? We kind of think no. The house may have a personality, but it 's not a very nice one. It has an almost "mechanical paranoia," and it continues on "senselessly, uselessly" with its tasks. When a dying dog comes in, the house doesn 't think "oh no, we have to help the dog"—it 's just "angry at having to pick up
In a future where books are banned and destroyed by the government, Guy Montag, a fireman in charge of burning books, meets a schoolteacher who dares to read and a girl who tells him of a past when people did not live in fear.
