Plot Events for Fahrenheit 451
This storyboard does not have a description.
Montag meats Clarisse at the beginning of the book. Montag notices her as a different kind of person. One who actually takes time to talk with others and think.
During a book burning emergency Montag has the urge to steal a book and read it. Even though he knows it could be a huge risk he is willing to take the chance.
Montag has stolen some books but can't understand what they mean. He also has the problem they have to be burned after 24 hours so he has to figure out a way to keep them secret, reprint them, or remember and understand them.
Montag is reported for keeping books and the firefighters come to his house. Captain Beatty makes him burn his things and when he yells at him and taunts him Montag looses it and burns Beatty with the flamethrower. He runs away from the murder seen limping from his encounter with the hound, who he also burned up.
Montag escapes from his pursuers by making it to the river and washing out his scent. The hound could not find him and his fake death was staged so they wouldn't have to admit that they were lost.
Once Montag was safe from the hound he ran into a group of guys who had a mission. A mission to remember books and pass them on from generation to generation. Montag joined them and his old city was bombed. Everyone had a book they remembered, and Montag's, was Ecclesiastes.
