The future world of dictatorship highly scared Ray. Dictatorship motivated him to write this book.

The crammed work by the rebels is not allowed in the dictated country.

This book can lie under different categories. It is a horror type. It is a horror type because, relating this book to a real life situation, it is very hypnotizing for individuals to attack your home and burn up everything without reason and insist on you doing what they ask.

If I were to rate this book in context with a real life situation, I would give it ten out of ten. In the real life situation, this is one of the best novels ever written. This book explains a real life situation where dictators control the state. It gives the reader a view of what kind of life they would live if dictatorship were the form of governance in our era. In this case, we can identify knowledge of the kind of life we are to set for our future generations. For our survival and that of our future generations, we would need to have traits of Clarisse, Montag’s neighbor. The attitude and passion of self-liberation. Self-liberation is a step to us all liberating each other and freeing ourselves from slavery. Despite it being dangerous, when we work together, the dictatorship group cannot kill all the individuals. Fear should be a strength not a weakness in such situations.

Is Guy Montag an innocent individual?

In this novel, Montag works as a “fireman” since he burns up possessions of the people who read books that are not authorized by the totalitarian state. He works arrogantly without trying to see the truth on both sides. Montag is not innocent in this context. Montag burning people’s property is not right despite him not having knowledge on what exactly they are doing. Montag also noticed he was making mistakes in what he was doing. He saw this factor when his neighbor, Clarisse was missing. When the old woman in chapter one committed suicide by burning herself in her house, Montag started seeing that there was a problem which needed solving. He stole one of the books with an aim to read it to understand why the state did not allow the people to read this books.

Though it is not clear why they burn these books, we can see according to the text that individuals in this culture may lack an interest in reading making them hostile towards books. There being a natural influence to burn books shows a low-interest rate of understanding books. Their fear towards the state may also explain their reasons for burning books.

According to the fluctuation of Montag’s Traits in this novel can people change their habits?

Montag was at first a worker of the state. He identifies the effects his work, therefore, contributing towards people lives especially towards his neighbor Clarisse, led to him trying to understand the other part and determination of Clarisse in finding liberation. Him changing due to curiosity shows that any human being can change depending on the environment and people’s traits.
