At the sight of the books, Mildred was terrified and wanted nothing to do with the books. She would rather listen to her “family” than her
Montag begins to collect more books hoping to find out more information on the past and why the world is the way it is.

Guy Montag from fahrenheit 451 and Truman Burbank from from the Truman Show have similarities and differences. Guy and Truman both wanted changes in their society. Truman did not know that everyone was watching him. Guy Montag was a fireman who destroyed people's houses and the problem was he had no choice because his boss ordered him to burn the houses because of owning books. Guy did not like the idea of burning houses because of owning books.
“While the flapping pigeon-winged books died on the porch and lawn of the house.”(Bradbury pg.7) The symbols connects to Montag because burning books he loves to burn books with pleasure and taking away people 's knowledge. He destroys books because it is what he does as a fireman. In Fahrenheit 451 the government does not want people to have
Ray Bradbury 's Fahrenheit 451 is about Montag, a fireman who burns books instead of saving them, who questions the government 's decision to outlaw reading all together. Montag 's questioning is brought up when he has a lengthy discussion with his young curious neighbor, Clarisse. This seventeen year old, asked so many questions about life ,and the meaning of things, she also spoke to Montag about the horrible society they live in. Although Clarisse was killed early on in the book, she left an imprint on Montag to speak out against the government and Beatty. Clarisse like all children was curious, she’d spend her days wandering the town looking at flowers and people.
In the image above, fires from the explosion of the atomic bomb take over the city of Hiroshima. This is an example of the fires that trapped people in their homes and killed them. Another citizen named Toshinki Sasaki, was trapped under a bookshelf because of the bomb. When she heard people talking near her she yelled for help. The man realized she was too deep to get her out on his own and so he left to find help.
Montag wanted to read books but it was illegal, so he had to sneak the books from the firehouse. but the firemen figured out and tried to burn his house down but then he just ended up killing all of them. Not reading books also basically drove him insane because he killed them by bashing their head in. My first piece of evidence is“There’s Beatty dead, and he was my friend once, and there’s Millie gone, I thought she was my wife, but now I don’t know. And the house all burnt.
Once upon a time on a dark scary night all people could hear was crackling sounds. As the people wandered closer the bright orange and red flames caught their eyes. It was the fire of burning books or known as Fahrenheit 451. 451 stands for the temperature of which books burn. For instance the law is not to read books or have them for more than 24 hours.
The first similarity between the two society is that both ban books, my society bans books because people feel they need to ban books because it does not line up with their religious or moral beliefs also it can be offensive to some people. Another reason both society are the same is that each other live in society where people are becoming more and more violent towards each other, an example of this is one Clarisse tells Montag that she 's "afraid of children my own age. They kill each other... Six of my friends have been shot in the last year alone” page 30. With my society people kill each other all the time for no reasons. I will like to discuss which society is better my society or Fahrenheit 451’s society.
And he gets scared because he hid books he stole from the places where the firemen burned houses. And if the hound found out it would kill him. The next day, he goes to work and the alarm rings and they go to the house and he sees his own house. He asks Beatty if his wife and friends rang the alarm, and Beatty say that her friends did then she did. After, Beatty makes him burn down his house he turns and kills Beatty with the blaze.
’For your file,’ he said, ‘in case you decide to be angry with me.’"(Bradbury, page 71). Faber is asking to get his house burnt to a crisp, but montag decide not to turn him into his higher ups. This society scares people that break the rules so much that they turn themselves in. This society makes people feel guilty for reading books. In the real world, society does something similar to this, just with opinions and not books.
Because creativity was frowned upon, books were banned. Authors could not publish books because that would inspire the citizens to be curious and to read, which would be “different” if anyone were to be caught reading or handling a book, they would have their house burned down along with losing possession of the
Firemen searched the building searching if their was any evidence on how the fire was started and discovered something even more important. They figured out that during the fire the doors were locked which prevented the girls to get out of the building. “... we never went out the front door. We always went one by one out the back. There was a man there searching, because the people were afraid we would take something, so that door was always locked” (Leap for Life, Leap for Death).
The book i am responding to is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. In Fahrenheit 451, there is a particular event in the book that rather shocked me. In section 1, from pages 33 to 37, Montag and his fire crew get a call to an elderly womans house in the middle of the night to burn her books. The firefighters demand she tell them where the books are and they tear up her house looking for them. What surprises me the most is that the firefighters start the fires and don 't put them out like in our modern day world.
