A storyboard about the book, Fahrenheit 451
The fireman, Guy Montag
Guy Montag meeting Clarisse McClellan
Return home to Mildred Montag
"It was a pleasure to burn" The state commanded that all books must burn. So with Montag and all the other firemen burn books to show obedience. When books and new ideas are available to people, conflict and unhappiness occurs.
Guy Montag soon realised that everything isn't like he wanted it to be. He meets Clarisse McClellan, a teenager, who begins to question whether he really is happy. She questions him not only about his own personal happiness but also but his occupation and about the fact that he knows little truth about the history. At the same time, she also gives the reader the opportunity to see that the government has dramatically changed what its citizens perceive as their history
After the encounter with Clarisse McClellan, he returns home to find his wife Mildred Montag unconscious. She is lying on the sofa with seashell radios in her ears and has overdosed on tranquillisers and sleeping pills. Whether an attempted suicide or a result of sheer mindlessness is never settled. Although Montag wishes to discuss the matter of overdose, Mildred does not , and their inability to agree on even this matter suggests the profound estrangement that exists between them.
