At first, Montag thinks he is the only one of his kind out there but he soon
found out that wasn't true when he met the young girl named Clarisse. He
quickly realized after that he is not living the life he would of liked to live and
he wanted to figure out why and how he ended up burning books as his job.
This story foreshadows the events to come in different ways. At the beginning of the story
Montag looks at the ventilator grille and mentions a cluster of something behind it. We
would later lear that there were books in there. We also see another even foreshadowed
when Montag arrives in the firestation andthe mechanical hound doesn't like him and it
gets Montag nervous. It shows that later on, he wouldbe chaced by one because he'd get
involed in books. -Malik Pope
Fahrenheit 451 had many many strange events but not
only did this book teach me lots of school related
subjects, but it also taught me how to respect an author
and his hard work.
What if this were the
alternative for Fahrenheit 451? - Uriel
