Realistic or not?

I think Fahrenheit 451 is a bit realistic when it comes to the amount of electronic devices use in the novel, for example, TV, especially Mildred.

Mildred and Clarisse

I like the way the author tries to compare Millie and Clarisse together. These two characters have a totally different personality and by this is helps Montag to realize his true feelings towards the society, his wife and his job. He usually doesn’t question himself but after he met Clarisse he started to question himself. […]

Montag as a fireman

Was a fireman, Montag’s dream job? I think that Montag was a fireman because of the influence by his family and that in that period of time, firemen was a dream job to everyone. “Kerosene” “is nothing but perfume tome” implies to how Montag looks up to this job because his father and grandfather were […]
