After, while Montag was igniting his house, Beatty claimed, "When you're quite finished, you're under arrest" (Bradbury 111). Captain Beatty was also reading books in his life secretly. But instead, he punishes Montag for reading books secretly just like him. Betraying others cannot reward you in the end; Captain Beatty died with pain from the heat of a
The reports goes on to say that as more Americans lose an interest in reading the more our nation becomes "less informed, tolerant, and independent-minded." It doesn't differentiate between "moral" or "immoral" books. Omanovic's solution to the decline of reading is to eliminate all bans on literature in high school an add a couple of banned books to the curriculum to get students engaged about reading again. I agree with Omanovic’s thesis. First, reading banned books is a part of student’s growing process.
His job is to burn down the houses of book owners. Instead of putting fires out, he discovers a girl by the name of Clarisse McClellan who makes him think about life and what he’s actually doing in life. This leads him to question his motives and rediscover his feelings about how firemen previously put out fires instead of setting them. The reader then finds out that Montag has been taking books and has quite some interest in them. Montag starts to believe that he may have been told lies for all these years.

The main theme of the novel Fahrenheit 451 is the control of the knowledge. Ray Bradbury created this dystopian society that created many ways to limit and stop the spread of knowledge through human interaction. ** One example of these censorship limitations is the burning of books. In this society the job of the firefighters is not to stop fires, but to start them and burn all the books they find. The firefighters burn books because the government does not allow people to read whatever they desire.
The crisis of identity is at the core of Fahrenheit 451; as Montag learns from a series of mentors and teachers, he sees his own identity melding with that of his instructors. In Bradbury's dystopian world, the people in charge want everyone else to stay in their homes and watch TV. Porches don’t exist because they don't want people outside, where they could look around their neighborhoods and engage the people they live near. Books are considered evil because they make people think and question, perhaps, their current circumstances, which is why the fireman is a burner of books rather than a protector against fire. "The man who loved books, the boy who was wild for them...I ate them like salad, books were my sandwich for lunch, my tiffin and dinner and midnight munch...I carried so many home that I was hunchbacked for years...and then...why, life happened to me.

If he was a good person from the start he wouldn’t have become a fireman in the first place, when his curiosity built on books he was becoming greedy for the knowledge, and finally, he killed his chief because of emotions. People who have read this book might have sympathized Guy Montag for he was changing to be a better person but overall he isn’t really the best hero. In Fahrenheit 451, the beginning of the book describes Montag doing his job as a fireman, a man who burns books. Books were considered illegal and so these men would have to search for them and burn them. These men were considered the “bad guys” right off the bat and Montag was a part of them.
