In Fahrenheit 451, their technology definitely gets out of control. However, this isn’t in a good way. In fact, it is in a very negative way for their society. The government puts limits and restrictions and what the people can know and learn. They do that through technology by making people want to watch television in place of reading.
Society is built upon a grand scale of assumptions and misunderstandings, all of which tend to lead us in a path for the worst. There is, however, a remedy for our seemingly infinite list of problems that lead us to war, hate, and unrest.

Grendel and The Captain are able to create their own foundations in their own beliefs, but they are challenged in life through the exposure to the world and its expectations.

The ending was quite unexpected and unpredictable. By using an open-ended plot the author makes the reader reflect on the possible endings of the story.
