In Fahrenheit 451, no one reads any books, thinks independently, or have conversations that are meaningful. The firemen of this society burn any book they find, people watch too much television, drive too fast, and listen to everything that the government tells them. “I’m afraid of children my own age. They kill each other. Did it always used to be that way?
In conclusion, “Harrison Bergeron” and Fahrenheit 451 are similar because of themes, settings, and characters. The themes of both books are both knowledge is power. Both of the settings are around the same time period and they are dystopias. Finally, the characters of the two stories are both lifeless wives and the main characters are against the society. This shows how the two stories are similar by themes, settings, and
these stories have many similarites and differences. "The freedom writers" and "Fahrenheit 451" are very similar. in "Fahrenhiet 451", Professor Faber helped Montag understand the Bible and becomes a great teacher to him. the passage state,"I need you to teach me. All right, all right.

In both dystopian stories knowledge is the reason the protagonist gets into trouble. In Fahrenheit 451, guy montag’s involvement with the knowledge of books turns his life upside down. He starts out in the book a care free fireman working nine to five burning books, to a felon on the run after he torched his fire captain. Knowledge ruined his life, but if he never met Clarisse he’d be living a somewhat happy life. Knowledge doesn’t provide happinest look at our society, the NSA spying on citizens, presidential candidates committing treason, and illegal immigrants crossing the border to have children to leech of welfare.
Fahrenheit 451 by Richard Connell appeals to the reader because it depicts many of the same problems that are applicable now even though it was written over 60 years ago. The story is Mr.Montag and a turning point in his life as he realized that he was not happy anymore and realizes that books have much to offer. After reading, the reader realizes just how we as a society are so dependant on technology that we endure a state of false happiness. In his book Connell uses Character Development as one of the many levels of text to develop the theme of technology allowing the censorship of thoughts and Ideas putting them in a sort-of trance feeling false happiness and not realizing the problems around them.. The two characters Connell uses most
Fahrenheit 451: The Direction We Are Going Imagine a society where books are outlawed and people are obsessed with technology. Citizens are told what to think and how to behave. True happiness is unfamiliar to all. While this setting seems obscure, it is what society today is gradually approaching. This is what life is like in the novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
There are similarities between Kurt Vonnegut’s short story “Harrison Bergeron” and Ray Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451 that can be found in their characters, equality, government power, and overall themes. The first sentence of “Harrison Bergeron” starts by saying, “The year was 2081…” Both “Harrison Bergeron” and Fahrenheit 451 are set in a future society where everyone is made happy. The characters are another example of a similarity. George and Hazel Bergeron could be compared to Mildred and Guy Montag at the beginning of Fahrenheit 451. George and Hazel’s fourteen-year-old son has been arrested, but on page one it reads, “It was tragic, all right, but George and Hazel couldn’t think about it very hard.” In Guy and Mildred’s society, there is war getting ready to happen and people around the world dislike their country since they’re better off than others.
