The book opens with a brief description of the pleasure he experiences while on the job one evening. On his way home from the fire station, he feels a sense of nervous anticipation.
Fahrenheit Fahrenheit This one is an obvious favorite of mine. What is it about? What isn't it about! It's about war, destruction, and the decay of society. It's about the consequences of choosing not to read, not to think THINKnot to engage with one another.
Here's the plot at its simplest: Guy Montag, a fireman who burns books for a living, is forced to stop living his double life when his wife turns him in for bringing books into their home. After his secret comes out, and there is no turning back after that, he runs for it leaving society and city-life behind him forever.
He seeks to join like-minded men and women in the great unknown living off the grid, so to speak. On the surface, perhaps, it's about firemen burning books and "destroying" the ideas within the books.
But a closer look reveals that almost everyone voluntarily gave up reading and thinking decades before the firemen burned their first book.
It's about people's need for immediate gratification--the need to feel good, to feel happy, to keep that good-happy feeling--all the time. For this review, I want to frame my thoughts around a few quotes I found within an A. I hope you'll agree with me, that they are super-relevant to the themes of the novel.
A German philosopher many years ago said something to the effect that the more a man has in his own heart the less he will require from the outside; excessive need for support from without is proof of the bankruptcy of the inner man.
If this is true and I believe it isthen the present inordinate attachment is evidence that the inner life of modern man is in serious decline. The average man has no central core of moral assurance, no spring within his own breast, no inner strength to place him above the need for repeated psychological shots to give him the courage to go on living.
He has become a parasite on the world, drawing his life from his environment, unable to live a day apart from the stimulation which society affords him.
Without them they could not summon the courage to face existence. The abuse of a harmless thing is the essence of sin. The growth of the amusement phase of human life to such fantastic proportions is a portent, a threat to the souls of modern man.
It has been built into a multimillion dollar racket with greater power over human minds and human character than any other educational influence on earth. I think the society created in Fahrenheit is deadened and numbed to actual emotions, thoughts, and ideas. Perhaps the result of an extreme reaction to fear, worry, and anxiety.
How can anyone know themselves, if they're never alone with themselves, when they are always tuned in and tuned out--when they're always connected technologically. It's always me, me, me; now, now, now; more, more, more; noise, noise, noise. Not only do they fail to know themselves, it makes it really difficult to actually know other people as well.
Everything--everyone--is superficial, shallow, eerily following the crowd. No one is original; no one thinks their own thoughts and forms their own opinions.
Fahrenheit is a coming-of-age novel, of sorts, for the very-much-an-adult, Guy Montag.Fahrenheit introduces the powerful but destructive idea of how a government can control the unconscious thoughts of its people by controlling the type of information it allows them to have access to.
