Shit is really hitting the fan at this point, which I was really excited about. I love books that really hook me and have such a intense climax that I can’t put the book down. This certainly happened with Fahrenheit 451. Beatty forces Montag to burn his own house down, and then arresting him once that was done, but before he could Montag turns his flame thrower on Beatty and incinerating him. Now he is on the run and must flee form the Hound and the city. Faber is the one who tells him how to escape the hound, instructing him to run to the river to change his sent. After he has escaped Montag he finds a group of renegade intellectuals called the Book People. They are a group of people who have memorized many books and other great works of literature. Their hope is to help rebuild society in the aftermath of the war that his just been declared. Montag’s job is to memorize the Book of Ecclesiastes. Just as Montag begins to settle into the book people’s society Enemy jets appear over the City that he once lived and obliterate it, the book people set out to look for survivors and begin to rebuild.
